Coincidentally, the other day I cracked the lens on my DJI Osmo Action ($10 Replacement from Amazon).
that was part of the reason i went for the osmo too,

busting a lense sucks, BUT busting a lense then having to send your camera back to the manufacturer cos they decided to try n skim an extra few bucks on "gopro as a service" kinda buisness model...... atleast you didnt have to do that!

I really love the 8 and only ever had issues with the 7. I like that you can swap batteries on the 8 without having to unmount it too.... the lens is an issue though.

Oh that is such a huge pain the in a$$! I get waterproofing and all that but who ever decided to put the SD card in the battery compartment where the whole camera needs to be taken out of the mounting housing to access should win the Bellend of the year award!

I can see why they do this, but it's possible to have a waterproof USB c, so not sure why they don't just do that in a separate door, that allows for charging, mics, well USB c things.

Then again, this is a problem for pretty much all cameras as far as I know. The osmo action has the c port and the memo port in the same door...
