    Wrapping Clothes and more


    Hi,
    have you ever used a
    1. wrapping cloth like the LCS-WR2AM | NEX Accessories | Features | LCSWR2AM.AE | LCSWR2AM | Sony or the LCS-WR1AM | Cases and straps | Features | LCSWR1AMB.AE | LCSWR1AM | Sony to protect the camera. I like the feeling they add to the protection of the camera.

    2. Is there something that can stay always on the camera body at the bottom part to protect the body of my nex-f3

    3. When do you use the lens hood? There was one within the package of nex-f3 but so far it just makes it looks nice

    4. Is there a way the lens cap to have a string attached so it stays around the camera when is removed for photo shooting. So far I need to keep track where I have put it.

    Thanks and Regards
    Alex

    To answer #4, they make lens cap tethers however you should be able to easily make something with some string.

    Never used one.

    There are half cases that you can use. Google Gariz for what is probably the best one.

    3. When do you use the lens hood? There was one within the package of nex-f3 but so far it just makes it looks nice

    I always use them, except for those rare ocassions when they block the flash.

    4. Is there a way the lens cap to have a string attached so it stays around the camera when is removed for photo shooting. So far I need to keep track where I have put it.

    Those lens cap keeper things are a PITA- they are forever getting in the way when you're trying to shoot. Being right handed I just remove the lens cap and put it in my left front pants pocket. Every time. I always know where it is. It's either on the lens or in my pocket.

    Thanks and Regards

    YMMV, but those are my thoughts.
    lumen capere… because it's fleeting

    #2: yes, check for a half case like the Gariz (you can find lots of threads here if you search)

    #3: you use a lens hood when you want to reduce flare, when using the lens outside during a sunny day etc...


    edit: Jim just beat me to it by seconds, lol :P

    The wraps seem like an overkill.

    I use a lens keeper, hate loosing the things in my pocket.

    5. You favorite accessory for cleaning LCD and lenses? Is there something that you just use it once and then you can discard it

    6. Gariz is really expensive. Does it really pay off so to spend so much money on this product?

    7. What about this one as alternative?

    #5. Alex, just get a good quality microfiber cloth (didn't you asked this again in a different thread?). And yes, there are one-time wipes available out there
