Sony AKA-MCP1 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony MC Protector is a multi-coated lens protector that attaches to the lens of your Sony action camera and protects it from dirt, dust, and scratches when the camera is without the underwater housing. It also features an anti-reflective coating that at the same time reduces reflection and flare, allowing for optimal image quality.

Furthermore, the MC Protector is designed with a water and oil repellent surface that ensures that splashes and dirt come off easily, allowing for clear shots in wet and muddy conditions.

    Sony AKA-MCP1 reviews

    MC Protector for Sony X3000 & AS300 Action Cameras is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens protection without image distortion. I bought the protector to use my new FDR-X3000 without the waterproof housing and it provided ample protection for the Zeiss lens. I docked the protector 1 star since it can be tricky to know if it's truly latched securely to the camera (it popped off once when I thought it was on secure). There was also a bit of lens flare from the sun in my videos (it was a very bright day) but not having used the camera without the cover I cannot be sure that the lens flare was from the cover or if it would have been there without it. I did not see any image distortion with the cover on. I honestly think that these should be provided with the camera (you get very few accessories) but B&H had a great deal on it and it is well worth the money spent for the protection of the lens.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Camera Accessory Ever Bought I never write reviews but I must now. When connected to the camera all this does is collect dust and water inside it ruining any photos or video you plan to take. It is not sealed in any fashion trapping dust and water inside all the time. For the camera to be quickly useable I now keep it off my camera and unfortunately have scratched my lens already. Keep it on.. safe lens & horrible dust/water imagery. Keep it off and you risk scratching the delicate convex lens. No win situation. The X3000 captures far better footage than GoPro but the design of the camera and especially this protector makes the system unuseable in rugged environments. Disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit for my X3000 This protector fits perfectly well on my X3000. I was worrying about the lens being damaged or scratched, but now I feel much relieved. Bit overpriced, but seems the coating is decent, and have not experienced nasty flare when shooting against the sun. (Much better than waterproof housing) I also have Feiyu G4 GS gimbal for Sony action cam. When I attach this protector, gimbal cannot balance it anymore. So be aware if you are planning to use it with the gimbal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Added Protection I was worried about the lens getting scratched and this prevents that from happening. I received a rubber lens cap with the Finger Grip Mount and I use it more since it fits neatly in my pocket with that cap installed. When using the VCT-STG1 Shooting Grip I tend to use the protector rather than the cap because with the tripod attached, size isn't a problem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product Received as Described I use this lens protector in the fast paced skydiving environment. The lens cap must be able to stay attached during periods of high winds and random bumps and so far it has done it's job adequately without fail. Some things I like about it is that you can't tell it's there from looking at the footage and it has a locking mechanism that seems to hold it in place securely. What's not so great about it is the size, I wish it was more contoured to fit the shape of the camera instead of increasing it's size so much. To get the 4th star - reduce the size and for the 5th - reduce the price. Next time I'd buy the cheap, third party one and give it a shot, this one is very costly for what it does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Protection Great addition to the camera. It protects the lens perfectly and looks kind of cool. I'm more confident in using this camera in action shots now that the lens is protected. Worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better to have it! The water proof case which come with the kit completly cover up the microphone. I would recomend this one for everyone who want great sound with protected lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for keeping bugs off the lens Good for keeping bugs off the lens when motorcycle riding with the Sony FDRX-3000 action camera sans the underwater housing.
