La Gopro Hero 9 est-elle étanche sans l'objectif ?

[ New ]

Est-ce que si l'objectif amovible est enlevé ou endomagé, l'étanchéité de la caméra est compromise ?

It's actually a lens cover to stop the actual lens from getting scratched.  The waterproofness of the camera is not affected.  Having said that, GoPro do not cover against water damage in their warranty.  It's a lot of money to spend on a camera.... so regardless of what's advertised, I would never bring my camera into the water without a waterproof case on it.  It's a cheap way to ensure your camera is not damaged in the water.
