A Spiffy New Camera Body Cap for Canon EF Mounts
Like many of you I have trouble shopping for what I need and then stopping. But it does take more then a bit of flash to get me to shell out my hard earned cash. Enter LockCircle a new body cap being made for Canon EF mount bodies and soon after Nikon F mount bodies. Are these eye catching caps functional or frivolous? You decide by leaving your comments below.
These caps are geared towards professional photographers who take their cameras into extreme environments where the cheaper plastic body cap may not be up for the harsher conditions. Made from solid aluminum they’re designed to seal your camera from the elements and to provide a manageable grip even if you’re wearing thick gloves. The first batch is due to be released August 1st for Canon’s in silver, titanium, and black.
Now I’m all for good build quality but for 99 bucks, wouldn’t it be nice if these caps actually did what their name suggests and locked? It would prevent thieves from using/selling stolen bodies and they wouldn’t even have to change the product’s name.
