    I just got my Hero 4 Black and am looking to get a protective clear filter to protect the lens. This is always a first step when I get a new lens, but have been unable to locate one. I have searched on here and found nothing. Anyone have ideas...someone must be using one.

    That's a very nice offer, but as I have been researching this, I may be changing to a different lens. So I will decline your offer...Thanks very much though.

    Thanks for the link BloodRed. I've bought from them before. Worth the price for movement and storage.

    Have you compared this with and without video/stills?

    A set of ND filters would probably be a better option for filming.

    Yes. A set of ND filters will protect the lens and make your video abilities better.

    In addition to a clear lens protector, I now have a Polar Pro filter set of (3)...Polarizer, ND4, and ND8. I don't publish videos, don't do post production...I just want the best footage straight out of the camera that I can get. I definitely won't be swapping filters around before every flight, so I am wondering which of these filters should I keep on the camera for simple daytime footage of landscapes, trees, etc...just general areal footage.
