5.0 out of 5 stars If you have Hero HD or Hero 2 you need this lens cap kit., December 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lens Cap Kit - Fits GoPro HD HERO2 & HD HERO - Includes Housing & Camera Caps (Electronics)
The plastic lens material on the GoPro original Hero HD and the Hero 2 waterproof housing is very vulnerable to scratches, scuff marks and abrasion against other surfaces during shooting as well as transporting the cameras. And the camera lens itself can also be scratched easily in a careless moment of handling when outside its protective shell. This Dynamic Duo of lens caps is a must have item for anyone owning either of the first two Hero HD models. (NOTE: Not compatible with the Hero 3 housing or cam) Although I have a multiple camera hardside case and a plastic Plano pistol case that holds 4 cameras & accessories for storage and transporting all my camera gear, once in the field, especially for sports and other outdoor action shooting your cameras are very vulnerable. POV action cameras live in a harsh and dangerous environment by their very nature.

The small size of GoPro cams makes them perfect for putting in a shirt or jacket pocket or a day pack to carry along and pull out when needed for a quick set up. Now these lens caps are the perfect protection for keeping your camera and housing lenses clean and protected from damage even when in a pocket or pack.

Half of my shooting is with the Hero and Hero 2 Flat Lens Dive Housing which comes with a lens cap. The other half of my shots are taken using the original housing or bare bones without the housing for doing time lapse scenes. After using this set for a couple of months I just added another one to my Shopping Cart to purchase on my next Amazon order. No one will be disappointed with the quality of these products or their usefulness. SIX Stars!
