    Hi I can't unscrew the lens cap to fit my PHANTOM pilots ND filter.
    How tight are these things???
    Don't want to force it.
    Any idea?

    They are difficult to remove the first time. You might try putting a rubber band on the filter and grip it lightly towards the glass side while unscrewing it counter clockwise. A firm grip on the camera and a light grip on the lens works best.

    I tried a few of the suggestions but the rubber glove worked first time.
    You can't squeeze at all, just very light pressure and it comes off very easy.
