    how difficult is it to disassemble the 4k camera on a P3P. I have managed to get dirt inside the camera.

    it behind the front of the camera but not under the element

    if it were on one of my cameras I would say it was behind the filter

    Just unscrew the filter and clean it out. Turn it to the left with as little pressure as possible. It's very fragile and will not unscrew easily if you apply a lot of pressure and/or use a tool to remove it.

    I'm not sure how dirt can get inside a very tight camera unit.
