I purchased two Gopro Hero 7 black but with different texture of lens cap ?

last week I purchased Gopro Hero 7 black and filmed some footage.

 

3 days later, I bought another Gopro Hero 7 black, but this time, it came with different texture of lens cap which gets dust easily and hard to clean, why? 

 

 

why different lens cap but same price?

I think Gopro is not a small company and definately is not manufaturing Gopro Hero 7 Black, assembling different texture of lens cap randomly, is it?

 

or is it new version or old version? I just wanna know the reason why I got two Gopro Hero 7 black but with different texture of lens cap? 

 

any help would be appreciated.

Re: I purchased two Gopro Hero 7 black but with different texture of lens cap ?

Hi @ongi

 

I have checked a couple of HERO7 Black cameras and noticed the same gap you are referring to.

My personal camera has this and I have used it in water a number of times.

So long as all camera doors are closed, the HERO7 Black is waterproof down to 10m (33ft) without a housing. 

The camera is waterproof with or without the lens protector. This is cover is good to keep on as protection to bumps.

 

Thanks!

Thank you for your reply.

 

I totally get what you are saying about this, 

 

but what I wanna know is not about the feature but the product.

 

As you know gopro 7 is not cheap, I bought two of them but they came to me with different texture of lens protectors which made me confused and doubt about the mafacture date which I don't know where I could find.

 

I just wanna know the reason why, is it just simply that they produce Gopro hero 7, assembling two different texture of lens protectors randomly? or is it relative to manufacture date? or any other reason? as you know, when you buy electronic things, manufacture date is one of the most important things. 

 

Thank you.

Hi, it has been while since I was here but I broke my collarbone. I have some clue but Hero 6 owner must check it. I think surface of one of this cap is from GP6 production - the same size....but texture is a bit different. I am not sure but is kind of trace....they put part from GP6 warehouse to GP7 ... maybe...My GP7 has flat, not rubber sides.

Thank you for the input, @enc3ladus. Welcome back! Sorry to hear about what happened. I hope you're fully recovered. It could be the case, as you stated. 

 

@ongi - The HERO7 Black should have the protective lens as shown on attached on the camera to the right (based on the picture). Did the second camera come in a brand new packaging? Bought directly from GoPro?
