    Does anyone made an ND filter system for the P3? Even just a lens protector would be a great idea.

    I've costumed made myself a lens cap to protect the camera in transport but I supposed the demande for such manufactured items will be growing quite fast...

    I could print you one.
    But since I don't own a P3, it would be complicated to get exact measurements to build the 3D model.

    Thanks everyone,

    The lens of the P3 camera is visibly more recessed than on a GoPro so I'm not sure it really need a sun hood. So far, no one reported the sun flickering problem of a GoPro on a P1/P2.

    I've also easily managed to build a custom made lens protector from a cap of a pills bottle. What I'm really looking for is some kind of a clear glass protection while I'm flying. Something like the GoPro transparent lens protector that allow you to use various removable ND cutout filter inside it.

    Polar Pro filters will have a set of 3 filters (PL, ND(2) ND(3)) for 49.99.
    ND will be nice for smoother video! :)
