My P4 Standard appears to have a tinted protector film on the lens, like used on mobile phones.If so is it replaceable as it has a fee fine scratches , and getting sun flare in middle of shots. The gimbal/lens cove is always used for transport etc,
Thanks for any info.

Thanks.2 photos today, away from & into sun.Hard to make out on lens photo the small line outside rim of lens. I also found a bit of finger print on lens, probably cause of flare.Also appears to have fine scratches on lens which would not help.
Thanks for interest , Cheers Pete

I can't see the film. Try peeling it off (only a screen protector). Not normally used on drones because of distortion. If the scratch is on the clear glass, it is replaceable. EBay, etc. Might consider an ND filter replacement instead. Niether is an expensive option.
Good luck.

You don't need to use it. Try photographing without it. Or, if you ever bought a nice set of ND filters, there may be a plain & simple UV filter in the set. Replace the original one with that.

Thanks.only just realised the glass unscrews (doh !)
Which simple uv one would you recommend. Dont think I need a full set ND at moment.

Mine came in a set, but you may find it available separately. Gotta be cheap.. Of just fly without one.
