lens band



Just Ltd have launched Lens Band. This band stops lens creep, which can occur when a camera with a large lens is tilted up or down and the lens zooms in or out without the photographer's knowledge.

Lens Band is a patent pending silicone band designed with just the right amount of elasticity to stop lens creep.

Peter Brogden from just Ltd said: "Some manufacturers fit zoom locks to their products, but many don't. Of course, some lenses are fine when new but develop a bit of creep as they age and the zoom mechanism wears a little. You can't turn off gravity, but neither can you always hold your lens horizontal, so frustration sets in when lens creep occurs during normal use – and there’s always the risk of serious damage too."

The Lens Band is available fro £5.95 from the Camera Clean website.

And if you feel like supporting a worthy cause you can use one of these: Help 4 Heroes Band. This band is available at a lot less!

I have suffered with lens creep but I think it'd be cheaper to borrow one of the rubber bands from my local swimming baths next time i go!
