These is a useful kit, especially the standard lens cap. The little door for the charging port is nice to have since it's not tethered to the camera. I'm sure it won't be long before my original gets lost. $6.99 would be a fair price.
The doors and bare camera lens cover are great, but the dive housing cover doesn't stay on the camera, it's a terrible fit and is useless to me. It stays on when I have the camera is in the case, but the whole reason I got this was for the dive housing cover. I have ruined two cases already from scratching the lens. I wanted a cover that would stay on when I am not filming. I don't know if I got a bad one, but it's so loose that if I even turn the camera over it falls off. I thought being a GoPro product it would be quality......
This was an absolute Fabulous deal on a much needed accessory for my GoPro camera. We are always losing the caps and covers, so this was a suitable replacement. I often compare & research specs & pricing, yet this was ridiculously cheaper here on Amazon. Significantly less than what one would expect to pay at the big box competitor's store. I'm glad to also say that I did not sacrifice on quality, because these are exactly as described
First off, if you own a Hero3+, stop, don't buy this. There is an updated version (that I just found out about myself) which is made specifically for your and my 3+: GoPro Protective Lens and Covers
This makes most of my video a bit moot, but hey, I shot and converted it for Amazon before I found out, so that's what I'll run with. :)
Anyway, I picked up this set for less than ten bucks on Amazon and for what you get and the cost, it's not a bad deal IMO. Two replacement doors for your GoPro, a lens cover for when you run the camera naked or in "The Frame", and a protective front cap for your waterproof case. Most people neglect the fact that if you scratch the plastic on your waterproof case, it will show up in your footage. GoPro probably should have included something like this with the camera, but oh well. It's available now, and if you have a Hero3, I'd highly suggest one. Everything in this set LESS the front cap for the waterproof housing will work on a 3+. Everything will work for the 3.
In short, this is for the Hero3 only. 3+ owners look at the newer version which also includes a lens cover...for roughly twice the price.
It’s very necessary to protect the camera lens when it’s out of the housing and that’s what the small round cover is for. The housing lens cover is just for the housing and it adds excellent protection when filming on the outdoors, since scratches to the housing will ruin the video quality. The little side door cover being so small it gets lost very easily so having a replacement is a most. For me these are the most important accessories of this package.
