Gopro 5 front lens

09 July 2017 - 01:57 AM

When fitting the gopro 5 into the official dive housing the video shows the front lens being removed. What purpose does this serve? Will it not fit in the official housing without it being removed?  I have bought two different manufactures housings and the camera fits without removing the said lens. I would have thought that the camera would be a lot safer, just in case the housing floods with the lens in place. Any comments.

why remove lens on go pro 5 black

I've just bought a gopro hero 5 black and two underwater jackets from different manufactures. I see with the official jacket, the front lens is removed before fitting in the housing. The camera fits in the two "copies" without removing the said lens.  Is there a disadvantage to not removing the lens? I would have thought it would make better sense to keep it attached to maintain the cameras waterproof credentials.


salt marks on aluminium

I have a Light and Motion bluefin housing. After several years of light use, it is showing signs of salt marks on its surface. Can anyone suggest a good and safe way to clean it.
