Find out if MeuDome Touch, designed for underwater photography and filming with GoPro, is worthwhile

And today, in this analysis, you discover the main positive and negative points of the tool, which also accompanies a trigger:
Given the purpose of MyDome and other accessories in this segment, there is not much to go for when it comes to design. Here, we have a structure of 6 inches well finished that does not give space for doubts, a fundamental characteristic for those looking to enjoy underwater adventures.
