I have the tiniest of marks on a lens, can I fix it?

It's on my gopro, and how it got a scratch on the lens is beyond me, but it's there and it's noticeable when I'm shooting video. Aren't there compounds out there for fixing eyeglasses that work decently well? Could it work here?

Glasses are plastic, so the cleaners are more like McGuiars plastic polish.

That lens is undoubtedly glass and undoubtedly has coatings on it which I'd be concerned a polish would degrade.

Maybe you can just buy a new lens from GoPro for not too much. Usually customer support in companies like that are pretty good...might be less of an expense than you'd think?

...and a bump since obviously I haven't a clue!

You might try to find a replacement M12 lens

Pricey though...

That's only for the waterproof case, not the actual camera's lens

Damn...not doubting, but are you sure? Same model number as OP's, so maybe his is waterproof and that's the lens he scratched?

Sorry, OP, if I got your hopes up...darn!
