Gopro, you made the Folding fingers to strong and not the screws/threads :)

Hi

 

my camera had a crash yesterday, and it went beyond the integrated gopro mount, but not the Folding fingers, but the screws that holds the folding fingers. the screws just got ripped out, all 4, and i'm not sure if the threads are damaged, or i can rethread them (lost the screws). I would rather prefer, that it was the folding fingers which broke, then i could just buy a new and replace it.

could you please tell me the size of the screws, then i could try to mount it again.

 

Best regards 

 

Lars Bülow

lol you say that like it's just a matter of replacing the screws. if the whole assembly came off you can bet the screw holes are now stripped. that's not going back in. the bottom plate needs to be replaced. One new feature I didn't want or need.

 

When I get the 8 I'm putting it in a traditional cage like the 7. thankfully third parties have come on board with this idea already.

Do you feel now thar yourlegs are lost that the camera is no longer waterproof,  I do not suggesting ofsticking anything inside to see the depth.

Robert, I think you misunderstood him. I´m pretty sure he meant a cage/housing like for the hero 7 but of course made specifically for the hero 8.

Or maby I misunderstood you both Smiley Wink

hi,

 

this is why we "talk" here to settle the things.

 

either of us misunderstood, it is a very good idea..... to have a frame like h7 for h8!!!
