He means a uv filter lens.  Glue in place (in the enclosure) over the camera lens instead of glass for a little clearer picture.  Not a necessity but they do help  make the pics a little clearer.

Brian has the chips.  2.5 hour refresh.  See my post on Where to get a D370  there are a couple of links for $112 delivered,  otherwise hit circuit city closeout.
