Small gap on the top of the camera in the left hand side

[ New ]

Hello guys.

 

I have just bought GoPro hero 8 black and I have noticed that it has a small gap as the screenshot attached shows.

It seems to be a manufacturing defect. Is that normal?

 

Best regards

Daniel

the face plate is a rubber  type while the actual frame is a metal and fiber they are    glued. some  may be tighter then others, al lI am saying.  never had an issue with mine.  there is some play if asked?   With me since Oct/nov 2019.
