Got a Gimball and want a Lenscoat…

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Got a Gimball and want a lens coat to stop it getting scratched etc, then you could get one of these Lenscoats…

… they cost about £25 but they didn’t make one for my Gimball 🙁 So I bought a roll of Self Amalgamating Tape from Ebay for less than £3.00 and wrapped the Gimball in that….

…Self Amalgamating Tape is rubbery and ‘mainly’ sticks to itself so you should not have any problems removing it and it becomes water proof also.

OK it doesn’t look quite as nice but its much less bulky and in my opinion it certainly does the same job and MUCH cheaper also 🙂

Replacement Lens Cap for Canon 500mm f4

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

Got a Canon 500mm f4 lens then you will have one of these, a  BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG lens cap like this…

I wanted something smaller and easier to get in a photo backpack, and now use one of these…

and this is the result…

I think most will agree that this is a much smaller and simpler solution than the official Canon Lens cap.  Where do I get one ?  Well the top of a 200 gram Gardman tub of Mealworms was my answer, and I could even feed the birds with the mealworms so it was a win win situation 🙂
