GO PRO LENS
The main feature that is a plus with Go pros is the lens. It makes sure that the pictures are of high quality and clarity. GoPro cameras use mainly inbuilt lens that come with the camera though there are people who prefer to add protective lens to the inbuilt lens. The main aim of the protective lens is to protect the inbuilt lens against dirt, dust and scratches which may alter with its functionality. The protective lens also helps the inbuilt lens to last longer.
To serve its customers well, Go pro has a lens replacement kit that will enable one to replace their lens in case it wears out. The kit works well with HERO3 and includes two lenses and seals, screws and compatible housing.
Unlike other cameras, go pro cameras do not have interchangeable lenses but there are companies who have chipped in to ensure this feature in Go pros. Accessories such as the Ribcage which is provided by a company called Backbone has ensured that some Go pros accept interchangeable lenses.
