It has to be plain glass, and I feel stupid now for ever thinking it was a lens. If it were a lens, the camera would be shot. Check out this pic by StarNomad in another topic showing him using an MPVR completely "naked"; and the image on the LCD is just fine. :!: http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=main/....jpg&s=f10

I'm going to try to find a piece of antireflective glass at camera repair shops, and if no luck, my next "ingenious" solution is a flat watch crystal, the glass that protects a watch dial. There are generic ones available in increments of 0.1mm, so sizing won't be any trouble, and they're quite cheap. Not sure I'll have time for a week or two, but I'll let you all know how it goes.

the More questions asked the better we like you

1 yes if you cancome across with a peice ofglass or lens it'll work

any type of glass or plastic may show some type of reflection but I amsure you can even get a filter the correct size to fit in there.

it is not 25,, it may be a smaller not sure of the correct size.

once apart take to your local photo or electronics and match o

if you are an expert in cutting a circle out of plastic or glass hip hip

Whenever I have taken apart a cheap fixed focus digital camera, the lens and the sensor chip were always one piece. I guess so no dust can get in and contaminate the sensor.

This piece does guard against dust, but is removable. Notice in fishy's descriptions (somewhere, along with an animated pic) that the DV8800 also has a mechanical shutter in front of the real lens, which remains closed except when the camera's in use. So, with no power, looks like it can be disassembled with no risk of dust getting in.

Diyabolo

when you take a pic it will close and then reopen as well

that cover acts as two a shutter and a lens

"The cover acts as a lens?" I thought lenses had to be transparent. :G JK, I know you meant lens cap. Yes, that was just my meaning: the shutter would also double to protect the lens when the camera is disassembled.

I've found a lot of web forums to be very closed groups where the regulars are snobby and rude toward new posters, with no sense of humor at all, but you guys here are great. So thanks! When I do some work on the camera (whenever that is) I'll start a new thread.
