I have not experienced jaw fatigue as the camera is near neutrally buoyant in the water and the gopro does not weigh much to begin with.

The method is not meant as a do all for everyone. Just for people who need in particular passive video without distraction, and don’t want bubbles in the frame.

Some agencies encourage that the instructor video students for critique at a later point. This works particularly well for that.

I have also used it successfully on dives as deep as 250 feet where you definitely don’t need to be messing around with a selfie stick.

But it is good for others as well. Videoing and photography can be a major distraction. A good example is the case of Brian Bugge.
