    I smashed the lens on my GoPro, everything else seems fine, so I'm looking for a replacement lens. Since they can't be purchased, I'd love a trashed GoPro that someone sent into the water or something. Anyone have one that has been beat to hell but still has a good lens?? :D

    I'm in the same boat, I have a chip on my lens. It causes a shadow on my videos. I also have one lost in the woods somewhere attached to my other phantom. It's in it's underwater case so I should be OK if I ever find it.

    Thank you so much, I don't know why I didn't think of E-Bay. I actually didn't even think the thing was replaceable. I ordered one already.

    Tell me how it goes. I didn't replace my lens, because the little spots don't seem to show up in my pics, but at that price, I'll do it.

    I had RageCams replace a lens of mine after I smashed it with a hockey puck (stupid). They were super quick far cheaper than paying to replace the whole camera. I watched a YouTube video on how to replace the lens and it convinced me that I was not up for the task.

    Here's my smash.. the sound is heart-breaking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yI20wEkW74k&hd=1

    Here's the lens replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHtanRrOYng
