GoPro fusion - fragile, delicate.

What is this action-camera in which lens broken after the first fall?

Re: GoPro fusion - fragile, delicate.

probably about as good as someone who can't look after an £800 camera without dropping it

Re: GoPro fusion - fragile, delicate.

Only stupid person doesn’t understand that action cameras are made for usage in extreme situations.  It shouldn’t break up after the first drop.

Re: GoPro fusion - fragile, delicate.

the clues in the description, its an action camera not indestructable. DROPPING any camera isn't going to do it much good

Re: GoPro fusion - fragile, delicate.

I see nowhere in the description of Fusion that would lead someone to think it is Military Standard grade of durability. Especially the lenses.

In the manual it clearly states in two separate locations,

"WARNING: The dual lenses of Fusion are unprotected and
are susceptible to scratches, if not cared for properly. Always
store Fusion with the provided lens protection and avoid
resting the lens on any surface. Scratches to the lens are not
covered by the warranty."

"The lenses are exposed to capture spherical content and are unprotected."

Don't blame the camera if you used it improperly or didn't responsibly care for it.

GoPro Fusion - action camera (action-cam) or not?

Re: GoPro fusion - fragile, delicate.

GoPro pretty much defined the action camera market by producing small cameras that could be placed in rugged waterproof cases. The cameras themselves without the housing were never very rugged.

The Hero5 and Hero6 cameras changed the need for a waterproof case, but the Super Suit is still recommended for high impact activity and deep diving.

As of now, the Fusion does not have a housing. Without a housing it should be treated in a similar manner as GoPro Hero HD - Hero4 without a housing. With the lenses exposed, they are obviously vulnerable to damage.
