Elasticated Lens Cap Keeper

Another photography related gadget. Historically I used only my Nikon DSLR an in all the years I used it I never lost a lens cap.

Since switching to the Olympus Pen-F I have lost three lens caps in 6 months. Rather than continually buy new lens caps I went for a lens cap keeper. It detracts a bit from the looks of the camera, and I’m not keen on having the cap swinging around but ……

Basically there is a circular disk that is permanently stuck on your lens cap and an elasticated loop that you can attach to something. I have it attached to the camera strap loop but I suppose you could put it around your wrist etc (if you remember).

One of the Flickr groups that I love is Scotland Black and White.

Park Fun

After a hectic night the night before I needed to chill out so got some of the old toys out:

2017-05-28 15.47.40

Other than needing a bit of a wash and some tangles lines all are in working order.

Of course it was at EXACTLY this moment that the wind completely died so not much actual action happened.

In the photo are:

  • Revolution Exp
  • Flexifoil Psycho
  • Flexifoil Pulsar
  • Atalier Cesium
  • Benson Gemini

Not in the photo are

  • Flexifoil Stranger (not in the bag !!!)
  • Flexifoil ProTeam 8

I was considering which one to take on holiday until I remembered that the beaches are covered in sunbeds and there is no great location for flying 🙁
