Nat’l Camera Day!

Yep, it’s National Camera Day … so what are you doing for your camera today? Perhaps check its firmware to make sure it’s up to day. You could charge its battery and exercise its shutter. Best yet, it probably deserves a spa treatment! This is a great chance and reminder to give your camera a through cleaning. Get that old, white T-Shirt out, grab your cleaning fluid (mine is LensClens) and clean every part of the body(s). From the prism to the hand grip, to the battery chamber and the sensor, really clean every bit of your best friend. After all, it is its...

Speed Attaching that Plate This is such a little thing, almost seems silly to blog but it’s a biggie to me. Attaching and detaching my Really Right Stuff plates at times is like hand to hand combat!

The 14-24AFS Front Element Do you own a 14-24AFS? I’ve had mine since they were first introduced in 2007. It comes with a Slip On Front Lens Cover which does a great job of protecting the large front element until it gets used alot. Then it just falls off on its own. I had this happen to me so I went and got the LensCoat Hoodie (actually mine is from NPS from long ago). It’s not the same as the plastic cap that comes with the 14-24AFS as its front has some play in it. So I always zoom my lens back to 24mm when I put the Hoodie on. The video above demonstrates just what I’ve talking about. It’s a small thing but it protects a big...
