I know a lot of people are changing the stock lens. Would it be helpful to have a thread that lists the available replacements and results. Possibly tips and tricks

I have used the Chinese 4.4 and Peau 3.97
Please share your footage and thoughts

Peau 3.97

Ragecam 4.2 lens

Peau 4.35

Chinese 4.4 from Ebay

5.4mm

I'll admit I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to lens filters but I know there are significant advantages. I just don't know exactly what the advantages are and what type lens to consider.

Is that video shot only with the lens? Nothing showing the with/without comparison?

Just replaced mine with this one
I know the good folks at Peu have some great products too.
Weigh in if you have changed your lens. And what results have you had

Brand New 12MP 4.4mm Rectilinear Lens (no fisheye / distortion) for GoPro Camera
Great Find Pyrate. For those not in a hurry, I thought I would pass this along. It's where the seller is getting his lenses. He even used much of the same ad text.. 12mp 4.4 Lens

When you guys change your lens how does it affect balancing in Solo's gimbal? Are you having to add additional weights?

the lenses are pretty much equal in weight maybe a little heavier
the one I put in has a metal body so it is a tad

Has anyone figured out how to correct the pink cast issue in camera without spending a lot of money by paying someone else to do it?

I'd like to be able to understand to return the camera to stock if needed.

Also please mention if any of these alternative lenses will still fit the GoPro waterproof case. I still want to be able to use the GoPro for other things, and not only on the solo.

the lens I have will fit in the water proof housing, the 5.4 will not from my understanding.
I am going to try a trick on the pink. You take a video pointed at an all white surface.
This will reveal the pink. Now use that as an adjustment layer in PP to remove the pink

I feel pretty comfortable I could return mine to stock if I needed to
