Re: Do we get fake GoPro Hero 7 Black- Dusk White?

i've never seen a fake/copy/replica camera that looks anything like a GoPro Hero 5, 6 or 7. & with the white edition only just being released I really can't imagine they've managed to fake it already

Re: Do we get fake GoPro Hero 7 Black- Dusk White?

obviously, if one person can make it another can copy it. But as said, i've never seen a fake/replica/copy of anything from a Hero 5 onwards
