    So I found a pretty ingenious way to protect your camera lens. If you purchased a body shield of some kind, you can use the negative cutout of the camera hole to protect your lens.

    When I was done putting on my shield on my back cover, I looked back at my leftover cutouts and thought to myself. Wait a minute, I can use that circle cutout to cover my lens.

    Lo and behold, it was an exact fit! It even covers the red trim. The shield I purchased was from stealth guards. I'm not sure if other guards out there would be the same, but its worth a try.

    How strong/hard is the camera lens glass? Can it get scratches?

    I thought about that too after I applied it. I'm gonna have to do before and after shots.

    I think the lens is pretty strong, but it will get scratches.

    I tried putting a piece from a Stealth Guard, as well, but the pictures ended up looking fuzzier.

    Hoping for a better solution!!
