    Are you telling us that you were filming through that clear sticker ???

    The objective of the cam is protected by a UV filter so you won't scratch it.

    Jake, the glass that you took the plastic of from, is the your clear cover, the actual lens are behind it. It is removable and replaceable:)

    Yeah, you don't want anything on there. Buy a lens cap to protect when not in-use..

    Jake, and you were happy with your picture quality with the plastic, now you will be amazed:). By the way did you remove the piece of polystyrene in the gimbal behind the camera?:)
