    Apologies if this has been asked before:

    I'm hoping to get some underwater footage in a pond but the minimum focus distance of the SJ7 Star is too far. Is there an SJCAM or 3rd-party adaptor that fits the waterproof case for the SJ7 Star?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you break your lens loose from the hot glue and unscrew it by some extent, then you can get minimum focus distance as close as 10 cm or so.

    There is no SJ7-specific macro lens. Change the existing lens at your risk. Chances are you'll wind up with a "blind" SJ7.

    Or maybe use a camera specifically intended for quality photography instead of trying to coerce a simple snapshot camera into being a Canon EOS.
