Is my GoPro Hero 7 Silver still waterproof?

I dropped it on the ground and the framing around the lense dented, so there’s a small gap between the lense and silver frame. I obviously don’t want to test if it’s still waterproof in case I break, but has anyone had a similar situation? If you give me your email I can provide pictures of the damage, but I’d like to know ASAP??!!

Hi @grandpeak26345

 

Would you mind sending a picture of the camera showing the dented part?

This will help us assess the issue further.

 

Thanks!

Re: Is my GoPro Hero 7 Silver still waterproof?

Thanks for the update, @grandpeak26345. Although the gap appears to be small, this might affect the camera's waterproof ability.
