Lens cap for Nikon Keymission 360
I took a photo with a Nikon Keymission 360 (reviewed here) and it would have looked good except that my face is "foggy." It's not because of a problem with the Keymission, but because I scuffed my lens and I haven't bought a replacement lens for it yet.
Here is the 360 photo:
I took other photos and they have the same issue. Here is the scuff on the lens protector:
As I posted previously, scratches affect 360 cameras more seriously than non-360 cameras because of 360 cameras' very short focal length. The good thing about the Keymission is that I only have to get a replacement lens protector rather than replace the whole camera.
Anyway I found a third party lens cap for the Keymission. The set includes a cover for the regular lens protector and the underwater lens protector.
I would definitely recommend getting one if you have the Keymission because the replacement lens protectors are $40 each for a single lens protector (not a pair) besides the inconvenience of finding you have a scratch in the middle of a photo.
