Default Lens Coat covers

Have you ever missed a photographic opportunity because you could not hold onto your frigid camera any longer?
Remaining stationary in brisk weather in anticipation of a bird to land or an animal to emerge from its den just got a lot easier.

Quote:
LensCoat® Lens Covers are manufactured from 100% closed-cell neoprene, offering protection from bumps, jars and nicks, with a camouflage-pattern fabric cover. LensCoat® Lens Covers also provide a thermal barrier, protecting your hands from cold lenses in lower temperatures. They are easy to install and remove, sliding on like a sleeve, leaving no residue on the lens. And LensCoat® lens covers are waterproof, providing protection in harsh conditions.
(I'm not trying to sell anything but thought the above worthy of passing along.)

I think those are for the big professional DSLRs, used by photographers who paid $10,000 for their equipment. I see them in the field.

In Buffalo area winter weather, I shoot from the car and have various gloves without fingertips.

I thought it was a pretty neat idea....You could make them yourself easy enough!

I've been adding hand warmers and such to my binoculars for years.
I custom make them out of the fleece like material and include pockets for my hands and thumbs to slide into to adjust the controls.

Ever have the sun glint off your camera and scare the wildlife away?

Grandpa always said, "make sure everything on your camera is black!"
