    Anyone want to part with their original camera lens? ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots1435125927.148483.jpg

    I've ordered one from both dji and Drone Works. Nothing is happening.

    Currently using a Polar Pro filter. Would be willing to make a trade - Polar Pro for stock lens.

    Thanks,

    Mark.

    Might be faster to order a regular camera UV filter. Disassemble the filter and use that glass.

    Two challenges:
    1. The right size - I disassembled a 30mm UV filter (Tiffen) and the glass was only 27.14mm in diameter.
    2. Thickness - The Tiffen glass is much thicker than the DJI glass, which is really wafer thin.

    Side note - I have been able to confirm the filter mount is 30mm, but it is a higher TPI than standard lens filters. Testing with the disassembled 30mm filter and the 30mm step down ring I was able to get about one clean revolution before the threads locked hard. Visually they are close, but not quite there.

    I thought about asking the local glass shop to see if they could do it, but haven't gotten around to it.
