    The camera could also come equipped with a microphone that allows recording sounds in air and underwater

    So wait a second, this thing can record sounds underwater??? I'd like to see how that works out.

    Underwater sound recording - that would be about as interesting/useful as sound recording on an electric drone.

    Wow...that was interesting...glad I do not have any stock in GoPro. Have to wonder if GoPro could now sue the patent office for their mistake...as their mistake had such an adverse effect on their stock prices.

    Are you kidding? Diving you hear some pretty cool noises. I'd love to catch some Orca vocalizations (or any of the whales that frequent our waters) here in the Puget Sound or up north where we have a little place in the San Juan's on the Salish Sea.
    Or the mating call of the Midshipman's Fish:

    "SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) – A fish mating call is being blamed for causing a loud, ominous humming sound that is keeping a portion of West Seattle residents awake at night.
    Some have even reportedly been jarred from sleep by the low rumble, sometimes described as a growl, accompanying it."

    Was just basing my opinion on years of scuba diving. Most of the time there's nothing to hear at all.
    Get down on a reef and if you listen there are some random clicks every now and then or hear a diver's bubbles.

    Kodak and Apple have worked together in the past. Kodak made the first ever consumer digital camera with Apples help. On February 17, 1994, the QuickTake 100 went on sale. It was priced at $749 and initiated the age of consumer digital photography.
