Gear up with the latest and greatest in accessories for digital photography
Give Them The Boot
You protect your feet from wear and tear by wearing shoes. Why not slip your lenses into the snug-fitting Snoot Boots by Op/Tech and protect them from dust, moisture and impact? The cylindrical pouches come in different sizes, just like shoes do, for an ideal fit. You can fasten the pouches to your belt or backpack, or you can just toss them, carefully, into your bag. List Price: Starts at $13.95. Contact: Op/Tech USA, (800) 251-7815, www.optechusa.com.
Three's A Crowd
When a three-legged tripod is just too much to carry, opt for its one-legged cousin instead. The Giottos MV 825 all-metal Monopod is petite yet stable, affordable and comes with a built-in head. That's more than you can say about most cousins! List Price: $44. Contact: HP Marketing Corp., (800) 735-4373, www.hpmarketingcorp.com.
The Secret Is In The Tip
No one knows what the secret compound is in the LensPen tip, but it works remarkably well in removing fingerprints and smudges from camera lenses. On one end of this tiny and inexpensive accessory is a soft-hair brush for sweeping away dust and dirt, and on the other end is the flexible, rubbery magic tip. List Price: $14.95. Contact: LensPen, (877) 608-0868, www.lenspen.com.
