Glass. I tried to use toothpaste. Doesn't work.

Toothpaste wont work. Glass is much harder to fix scratches than acrylic. Your best option is probably to speak to Dave at Scubacam. They are in the Golden Wall Center. If he cannot do it, he will know who can.

Are the scratches affecting your shots when underwater?
So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...

Glass is very hard to repair.

If it was acrylic then you can purchase mesh sets which is basically a long series of different grades of sandpaper and you slowly buff out the scratch. But DO NOT try this on a glass port.

As I said earlier in the thread, David from ScubaCam is your number 1 guy to speak to in Singapore. If it can be done, he will know how, or know someone who can.
