    I ordered the Snake River Prototyping ND8/CP Filter for my Phantom Pro and I was wondering if anyone knows of a lens cap that will fit over it while it's on the camera. I know you can just take the filter off and use your normal lens cap but I was hoping not to have to remove it every time I put it in the case as I've read they are hard to get off as they fit really tight.

    There's none since its slide on/off and SRP has no plans to make one (as of Nov). Ask Dave with dynamic3dsolutions if he would 3D print one. I thought about it, but felt I was just being lazy given I already have a cap/gimbal lock for stock lens and polar pro

    Yeah, I already sent an email to Dave asking if he would make one that fits it. I actually already had the gimbal lock/lens cap ordered from him and just thought about it not fitting, before he's shipped it out.

    Does anyone on here have a Snake River Prototyping ND8/CP Filter and can tell me what the outer diameter of it is?

    It's not hard to measure it,do you own a metric ruler or tape measure?
    Perhaps another forum member has the same filter and a vernier calliper to measure it accurately for you.

    I can measure it when I get it. I just don't have it yet and was needing the measurements to get the lens cap made for it.

    Snake River emailed me back and said "A 36mm lens cap will fit on the P3 adapter nicely."

    I just received the caps I ordered and I'm happy with them.The quality is good and the fit is perfect.
