Hello all,
I have noticed that the lens swap on the Gopro is a hot topic.
For those like me who are not ready to take apart their precious Gopro , here is something that can be used to correct the distortion in still pictures.
I am sure many already know about this, but I am sure a few will be happy to use this free program.
As for video, 1080 makes it better than 720, but I admit the new lens seems to work very well.
Here is a side by side comparaison of a pic undistorted with the free GML undistorter as well as edited using the free "Paint.net" software.

Enjoy,

Shot early am in the Blue Ridge NC. 20 degrees, crisp!
The light changes by the minute, and all turns to gold for a moment.
Even better in real life.
Of course I had to give credit where it is due, for this wonderful music.
