Protective Lens Replacement Compatability - Hero 6 to Hero 7

Hi
Confirming that the protective lens replacement I purchased for the Hero 6 Black WILL NOT fit the Hero 7 Black?

Re: Protective Lens Replacement Compatability - Hero 6 to Hero 7

Hello @kiwizulu

 

The protective lens replacement for the HERO6 Black will fit with the new HERO7 Black camera. The color is different though, but the size is the same. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

You are confirming it? Where did you read that it wasn't compatible?

Re: Protective Lens Replacement Compatability - Hero 6 to Hero 7

No I'm asking the question. The website sells one specifically for the Hero 7 Black and the generic one states is compatible with the Hero 7 White & Silver. I find it odd that the 7 Black would be a different size because then surely some other accesories wouldn't fit either??

Re: Protective Lens Replacement Compatability - Hero 6 to Hero 7

What website? The HERO7 White and Silver do not have removable protective lens, so how could the "generic one" be compatible with either camera?

As far as a replacement Protective lens for the HERO7 Black, there isn't one listed on the GoPro website yet, so I don't know. The Snorkel filter is listed as compatible (which snaps of the protective lens on the HERO5/6/7) so it appears to be the same dimension.

Hi @danielr15

 

Good eye! Yes, the protective lens for the HERO7 Black will have a separate listing only because it is of a different color. It will be up on the website soon. 

 

Cheers,
