A low-tech device that you need in your camera bag is a camera wrap. From wind to rain to dust, these shield your Olympus EM Series camera from elements that may impact the shot or injure your camera. In this movie, author Richard Harrington discusses the importance of owning camera wraps and demonstrates how to use them.
- Now, I'm a big fan of a low-tech device…and that's a camera wrap.…Camera wraps are designed to protect your gear…while it's in transit and there's a couple…of different styles.…First off, you can use a generic one, like I have here.…This is just a soft, velcro type wrap.…One side here is very gentle…and gonna protect the equipment.…The other is a bit weather-repellent.…So, you could take your equipment,…set it inside the wrap.…We'll just collapse that lens there.…And even though I haven't put on a lens cap,…I could very easily fold this up…and make a bit of a camera burrito.…
Now, this is gonna make it easy to keep things safe.…On the inside, we've got the soft surface…and the outside, the camera's a little bit more…weather resistant.…Now, I really like one though that's official…from Olympus.…Now, it's a bit hard to find, but it's the Olympus…CS 35 wrapping cloth and I know…that sounds a bit of a mouthful,…but I like this quite a bit.…It really has double purpose.…So, the outside here is weather resistant.…This is gonna be great to keep rain and moisture…
