If you have theSony FDR-X3000Action Camera, you may want to consider protecting the lens as there is no simple way to replace it if it gets damaged. In this review, we are going to be covering the Sony AKA-MCP1 Lens Protector. This newly designed lens protector will protect your lens from dust, dirt, and scratches. There is an anti-reflective coating and also a water and oil repellent on the lens protector. With all of these amazing features, the Sony AKA-MCP1 is a must have if you own the Sony FDR-X3000 Action Camera.

The Sony AKA-MCP1 lens protector on your Sony FDR-X3000 Action Cam will provide it with additional protection from dirt, dust, and scratches.

An advanced anti-reflective coating helps to reduces reflection and flare generally introduced by lens protectors. At the end of this article, you will see a video from our YouTube channel putting this lens protector to the test. You will be able to see the impact the lens protector has on the video quality of the sony action camera.

What is nice is there is a water and oil repellent coating that ensures splashes and dirt come off easily, for clear shots even in muddy and wet conditions.

This lens helps you to protect your action cam's lens from dirt, dust, and scratches without the underwater housing. An advantage to not using the underwater housing is that you get much better sound quality.

It is very easy to put this lens protector on the action camera. There is a small groove right under the lens on the camera. You just line the lens protector up with that groove and lock the lens protector into place. There is a lock slider on the top to lock it into place.

The only con we came across with the Sony AKA-MCP1 is the fact that is much bigger that the last design. It sticks out more and is a bit more bulkier.

Pros Cons
Protects the lens for a great price Adds width to the action camera
Easy to put on and take off
Virtually no impact to image
Easy to clean
