GoPro applies a custom software lens profile for their stock lens which adjusts the white balance to correct for the super wide angle lens color-shifting the light at the lens edge. On the stock lens, without the lens correction the corners would be slightly blue/green (see below). With their lens correction, the stock lens color looks well balanced. When we install a new lens into the camera the lens profile is still being applied which tints the corners a pink hue (pink is opposite blue/green). If you were to modify the camera yourself or purchase a modified one from a company besides ours, your media will have this pink corner tinting. By removing the lens profile we can return the color back to what it should be when using a non-stock lens. This service is all done through software, there will be no hardware modification done to your camera (unless you're paying for another service such as changing the lens).
This service item includes saving your GoPro Hero 5 & 4 camera's unique lens profile to your camera, tied to only your camera's serial number. We will then remove the lens profile on your camera (see below for example media before/after). If you need us to reapply the lens profile in the future simply contact us and we'll send you the software to do so. The original lens profile is backed up on your camera's internal memory and will be removed if you ever do a factory reset, upgrade the firmware or reset all the settings on the camera.
Removing the lens profile is unaffected by future camera firmware updates.
This exclusive Peau service is included FREE of charge for all new GoPro Hero 5 & 4 cameras we sell.
