hero 8 front removal

[ Edited ]

Is it possible for me to remove the front portion of the hero 8 camera - the rubber like part of the camera that houses the lense?

 

Thanks!

Not without voiding warranty and eliminating the waterproofing. Other than that, yeah, sure.

Yes it is very possible, and how you do it but like  said   tamper, its voided but gopro will always offer you options.   Ifhte lens is broken you don;t need to remove the facial plate.

With the simple investment of a hammer, you can remove all sorts of things from your camera.

I see. Thanks for your reply. Just that I’ve got sand stuck in between that portion and the body can’t seem to get it out.
