Care & Feeding Of A New Toy…Tool

As many of you know from my previous posts, I am often out in extreme weather, whether it’s rain, snow, hail, sub-zero temperatures, blowing sand, humidity, salt air, the steam from thermal features or debris from a tornado and I need to be able to count on my equipment to keep working for me in these extreme conditions. I take precautions to protect myself against the elements it’s only right that I do what I can to protect my equipment and outfit it to work at the top of it’s performance for me. Enter my friends at LensCoat and Really Right Stuff to have just the right items to keep my lens in fighting condition, ready to perform at the drop of shutter finger no matter what the condition…

I start by covering my new lens with a lens cover and a Hoodie lens cap to protect it against the elements as well as from scratches and scuffs when I am shooting from a blind or window to avoid scratching the finish and to cushion the lens. The next thing I do is replace the original foot with a Really Right Stuff replacement foot so that I am ready to mount my new lens on my Really Right Stuff gimbal head…

Now that my equipment is outfitted to face all that nature has to throw at it bring on the next adventure! Stay tuned…
