V50 Pro SE tested in the Pacific Ocean to see how it dealt with waves and splashing in both video and photo modes. Akaso says that with the included case it’s waterproof for up to 39.6 meters (130 feet) which makes it useful for surfing, snorkeling, and some relatively shallow diving.

No complaints with the images or videos I captured. There were some definite oohs and aahs as I watched perfectly clear videos of ocean waves lashing out at and curling around the camera. And it handled still photos in total sunlight with aplomb.

Akaso V50 Pro is recommend for Special Edition to anyone just getting into 4K action cameras or looking to upgrade to something newer. It’s a steal at $154.99, you can pick yours up here. Otherwise, if you’re willing to come out of pocket a lot more, you can pick up a GoPro Hero 7 Black here.
