Hero7 black waterproof without lensprotection?

[ New ]

Hi

To get the Hero 7 black in it's underwater case, you need to remove the lensprotection. If water would to come in the protective/underwater case anyways, is the camera itself waterproofed without lensprotection anyways?

The lens protector is to stop the lens itself from getting broken or scratched.  Without it, your camera is still waterproof down to 33ft (10m).

I see, i was wondering because when i removed the lensprotector it had a big o-ring/rubber gasket so i trought it was to keep it waterproofed.

It's to keep water and dirt out of the lens protector.  If water did get in, it would cause the lens to get dirty or humidity to build up and block the shot.
