    Last week I received my brand new Phantom 3 standard. When I look at the camera there is a plastic cloudy cover over the lens with DGI label on the center front of the camera. I assume this cover needs to be removed to take pictures but I have not been able to find any information that even indicates this part exists. I would be grateful if anybody could let me know where I can information about this part.
    Thanks

    It's a lens protector......
    Remove that and gimbal lock before powering on the standard.
    Replace after use.

    In the DJI app there are video tutorials. Click the little grad' hat on the top right hand side when connected to the app.

    Thanks for clarifying! Were you saying to look at the video tutorials because they showed the lens protector? I did not see it there! I had looked at those previously.One of the videos is duplicated leaving a subject uncovered!

    I plan on replacing gimble lock and lens protector with a third party plastic part that locks the gimble and protects the lens in a more straight forward manner.
    Regards
