Although I pretty much have my camera bag covered, I love trying different tools that can add versatility and comfort to my work. I love the fact that small things can make a huge difference! With that said, I have to share with you my experience with a little gem that was sent to my home. Being a prime lens shooter, means I move quite a lot during my sessions and with that comes the fact that instead of using the lens for focusing, I use my feet for getting closer or further and my hand is always 'hugging' the lens in such a way that I must feel stability and reliability in order to get perfectly focused shots. And to this I must add that I always wear hand lotion...so imagine my struggle with the slippery feel! This little gem called Band.it, gives me all that and much more. At first I didn't know how this would work for me but once I placed it on my lens and took it for a spin, I fell completely in love with it. Band.it is a soft, durable and flexible elastic band that fits around the body of the lens (on zoom lenses, it goes around the focus ring) for added lens protection and precision while shooting. Band.it also enhances the grip and extends the surface of the lens barrel, acting as a great cushion for your fingers making it a great tool for added stability and control. I love the fact that it fits on all my prime lenses, it fits perfectly on my camera bag when attached to the lens, it gives me extra comfort when 'hugging' the lens, the inside ridges give me peace of mind because I know it won't slide off the lens, the cushion from the band helps protect my lens and I also love that the raised ridges help keep the band dry, which means no more struggle with the feeling of slipperiness on my lens due to my hand lotion! This little gem is definitely a great tool to add to your camera bag! To learn more about Band.it, please visit: http://www.rdminnovation.com/bandit.
