The GoPro 3+'s focus problem: how one user fixed it

GoPro's very suspicious website claim. Click to enlarge
GoPro claims that its new 3+ line yields sharper images.
     Users worldwide are crying foul, saying that the lenses are no longer prefocused at infinity and are only sharper up to about five feet from the camera.
     How deceptive GoPro's advertising really is or isn't are would be up to the courts to decide in a class-action lawsuit, of course.
     We just hope that if a suit is filed, it isn't heard by a blind justice.
