As well as a lens cap all larger camera owners should invest in a UV or Skylight filter.  They not only improve image quality slightly, but offer great lens protection when not using a lens cap. Canon now offers pinch lens caps that allow you to pinch from the center of the cap instead of along the edges.  The new lens caps will be rolled out across Canon’s lens line-up beginning in January 2013. I would love to see  an extra lens cap supplied at time of purchase. I am always misplacing mine.

NEW NIKON: The Nikon D5200 was recently announced throughout Europe, Asia and Australia.

In the mean time, there’s sure to be some great deals on older Nikon models as as they near their end-of-life.

I am looking forward to testing this camera as I am always on the lookout for high quality cameras that are lightweight for my overseas excursions.  Less is often more.

I like the 4/3rds format due to the smaller camera size, but miss the larger sensor. I believe this camera is extremely good in its video mode and sorts a stereo microphone with provision for a plug in external mike.

The photo below was taken by me in the picturesque town of Honfleur in France while on a cruise last year. Technical Details: Nikon D70  1/400sec at f10 ISO 1/320 set on Auto, Quality L.
