HERO10 Black: Lens Protector Improvements

by GoPro on ‎09-16-2021 08:39 AM
The Lens Protector for the HERO10 Black has been improved in three performance areas:
  • Hydrophobic: The lens now has a hydrophobic coating that allows the Lens Protector to shed water all on its own. You don't need to lick or add any third-party water-shedding solutions. 
  • More scratch resistant: It's still glass but will be more resilient to scratches.
  • Reduced Lens Flare and Artifacts: When the camera is pointing towards the sun, you will see less lens flare and artifacts, which results in a cleaner image.

To prepare the camera for use in water, or to get water droplets off the Lens Protector: Simply dunk it in water and shake it dry. This even works in salt water, though you should rinse the camera in fresh water when you're done using it for the day.

The Lens Protector for HERO10 Black is also compatible with HERO9 Black.
