    Just looking at the new camera it has a very shiny looking inner rim on the lens and was wondering if the sun will hit it and cast a glare across the lens now and then ?- thought they might have made the area around the lens a matt black to avoid reflectivity ?

    In the meantime, as a temporary but effective solution, you could cover the shiny bits with black insulating tape

    Thats OK for the fpv screen but I was talking about the actual camera inner bezel but now I actually have a + there doesn't seem to be a problem. For those wondering about sun screens the ones Milton does seem worth a go, I know pull up likes them and I have one on order to try, so might be worth a look. I certainly need something as I have decided to ditch my 8" tablet screen as it was losing definition badly with the image, so am reverting back to a smaller screen and trying the Milton Screens with the magnifier and see what thats like.
