This is what you need to protect the camera lens while on the desk downloading videos ect due to the exposed lens just waiting to be scratched.It may be used in dry/protected areas but for rain or dirt you need the dry OEM case.I am using this case also as a test unit to add a 37 mm step up ring [to 52mm] so that I can add filters [ cpl/uvA] It seems that the lens outside dimension is 37 mm so even though the lens is not threaded it should be possible to lightly file out the 37 mm ring to fit flush on the case and be carefully glued down.Then a 52 mm filter should fit.It needs 7 mm's to clear the protruding lens.It may take a second 37 mm ring to get the clearance[ Installed first].A cheap 37mm uva with the glass removed should work.Good luck.
Just a follow up, this worked well,no filing was necessary it fit on the front ring and raised the ring up to the proper height.Now I am currently upgrading the Original dry case to accept the 52mm filters.No vignetting on the corners. Pro should add a thread ring to the lens to allow filters.Seems doable to me.
