the cover looks like its pretty tight so can't really see sand being that much of an issue, i dont own one of these yet was actually gonna get one but from all reviews ect ive seen watched noone seems to have said the extra glass is an issue,its same as running nd filters on older models or using the water proof case imho. the 7 is a fantastic camera , cant fault it at all especially at the price it was on this deal, I have an 8 solely as the difference in the hyper smooth , time warp and ability to take raw photos was better for my needs. I genuinely think gopro made a huge mistake by not having a removal lense and sure the 9 when it finally arrives will bring it back
Yeah but that seems like too much of a compromise of having more glass on the front and it still wouldn’t keep sand from getting in between.
Yeah unavailable now, would have grabbed one
You can buy a sleeve now that has a lens that can be replaced if damaged ( costs about £9 if you use the GoPro plus half price trick) For some reason GoPro decided not to add a lanyard loop innit like the other cover so I'm sure third party ones will soon pop up
that saved me £200 quid !!!!
