Thought I might share something that's working well for me on my cameras.

I have been using 30mm UV Lens Protectors I picked up at BestBuy. (Made by SIMA...model ULP-30)

These work GREAT, and fit perfectly inside the holes I cut with a 1 1/4" hole saw. A little silicone around the edge on the inside of the box and yer done!!

A few bucks more in materials cost, but simple installation and effective results. Hope this helps anyone interested.

Happy Home-Brewing......

Jayber,

Just by themselves...they work great, and like I said-
the 30mm's fit the 1 1/4" hole PERFECTLY, so they're a  "snap" to to seal.

They come in various sizes, I just "lucked out" on the perfect fit part!!  8^ )

Went to BestBuy today to buy two 30mm filters. They were closing out Tiffen? 43mm UV filters for $1.50 each. They are a little larger than necessary, but the price was right and a 1-1/4" conduit knockout cutter makes just the right size hole! The 30mm filters were $7.99 each.

Hi "Big Boy"
I have been up to my butt in work the last week and not much time to think. The 43 mm's I told you about that I am using on my new box is the Tiffen  that are on sale at Best Buy. I paid $2.50 ea but still a great deal.  Sorry I forgot to tell the part about on sale.  

Take care and hope to see you soon.  Later  Billy

PS: Are you feed ing my deer so he will be nice and fat?  Ha, ha, ha...

Thanx for the tip,  I will have to root around and see if I already have one of these filters and if not, go get one, you guys using them seem to have better color in your pixs compared to mine.......
