    So I cracked my uv filter lense and it shows in some shots that have too much light... Other members have said it doesn't do anything. If I unscrew it and remove it will it work the same or will it add in additional light and make my video worse ? Can anyone confirm? I fly to Egypt Tuesday and can't find a replacement in time... I ordered one on rush but it may or may not come in time.... It's raining so i can't test it...

    Here's a sample the first opening shot shows the crack a little.
