    I just don't see what you are supposed to unscrew and I don't want to damage the camera.

    put the lens cap on, then press down on the cap and turn.....kinda like a a childproof medicine top.

    I used the sole of my boat shoe... any flat rubber will do.

    I just turned it with my fingers while applying a little inward pressure. It wasn't difficult. I must be a brute.

    Lens cap tip worked great. I didn't want to inadvertently damage the lens.

    IME: the less pressure, the better.
