Protective Lens Replacement

Hi,

I am seeking for suggestions on purchasing protective lens replacement for GoPro Hero 7. At the official store, product costs around $20. However, since I am from India, it is costing me around $100 including shipping charge. Is there any cheaper way to buy the official lens? Also, if I use a third party product, will it affect my warranty conditions?

Re: Protective Lens Replacement

Third party is fine, although it may leak in water or having fogging issues if the gasket isn't high quality. The camera is waterproof without the protective lens, so there will be no effect on your warranty. 3rd party batteries and/or doors are really the only item that can void your warranty. SD cards, alternative housings, and protective lens will not have an effect as they are all external.

The warranty pertains to manufacturer defects. Of course, if a third party product damages the camera, it is not covered as this would be accidental damage. 3rd party batteries can damage the internal circuitry and 3rd party doors can compromise the water resistance, so they are strongly discouraged.
