...Secondly, in the 58-year history of NASA, the TOTAL amount of money they have been given over those 58 years is less than $600 Million.
You are correct that the cameras are boxed up. I believe it is just the standard waterproof housing inside of a small box or wrapper that was designed specifically to house the GoPro during a spacewalk. The outer box/wrapping is a protective thermal blanket to help shield the cameras from the space environment.
There are indeed pictures of the GoPro cameras in their housings; unfortunately I'm not sure if they're publicly available. In the meantime the people at collectspace.com have a semi-decent picture of a GoPro reflected in a spacesuit helmet
