I've never had a problem with my tripod in carry-on.

"Dust-free" and "lens-change" are mutually exclusive. That's just the way it is!

All you can do is try and change lenses and quickly and cleanly as possible (e.g. hold the body facing the ground). Or, you could look a complete twat and use something like this:

but I seriously doubt it's of any real benefit.

Surely opening the "Whatever you want to call it" and putting the camera in there introduces dust into it anyway?

I think multiple bodies if you've got plenty of $$$'s or face down quickly lens changes work for me!

Maybe if he moved away from the combine harvester he'd have less dust to contend with!  rotfl

Yes, but the sensors will stay clean! I mean, it's all about priorities in life!

Looks like a waste of money to me. When you open the "bivvy" to put the camera in, you'll have dust in there as well. A clean plastic bag would have the same effect, but with close to no costs.

It's one of those devices that are aimed at a certain market - like those brochures selling all kinds of handy, labour-saving devices for the home that you never knew you needed till you saw it in the brochure.

For me, a simple rule of thumb is - do professional photographers use this? If the answer is "no", then I'm pretty sure I don't need it either.

Eclipse is flammable and therefore according to airline regulations should not be packed in checked baggage.

The bottle of eclipse fluid is too small to cause any problems. Hasn't for me anyways.

you kidding me!!?! Almost 25£ (almost 40 Euros) for a small piece of cheap transparent plastic. I'd rather put one together myself for a tenth of the price.  Yeah sure

On the other hand I don't shoot combine harvesters that often...

I have used a plastic bag from one of the local grocerie shops. Works well, if you happen to be in a "contaminated" enviroment.
Especially if you rub it against something first, creating a bit of static electricity in the plastic, which will attract any dust-bunnies that inevitably will have found its way into the bag whilst fiddling around getting the cam&lens in there.

Cost; 1,50 SKr =1,395€/2,1£/1.035$ (Todays exchange-rate! Note that rates can vary from day to day, making your investment more, or less, costly.  Big grin )



In thrust I trust.
