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

Hi Marius,

 

are you sure? Have you tried it? :) will the gopro hero 7black with lens replacement for gopro hero 6 fit into the new frame from gopro hero 7 black? I would say that the frame was updated as well (there is more rubber inside, or not? :) )

 

I found that the lens replacement for gopro hero 6 is slightly bigger in outer dimension... therefore I would be happy if you could prove it with some pictures of it :)

 

and what about the door replacement? Is the version from gopro hero 6 also compatibile with gopro hero 7?

 

regards

 

Martin

Hi @fedormartin

 

Both the side door and the protective lens cover for HERO6 Black is compatible with HERO7 Black (also for HERO(2018) and HERO5 Black).

 

I have switched the lens cover and the side door as an example. See attached photo.

 

 

 

Thanks!
