Weather sealing lenses
« on: February 02, 2013, 09:13:45 PM »
Just thought about it putting a rubber band around the base of the lens and pushing it tight against the body. Not exactly weatherproof but it has to help with the dust right cause I get a lot if dust here and have to clean the sensor 2-3 times a month

Here is a kickstarter for a lens gasket addressing your concern.  Your solution is alot less expensive to implement.

I love that link. I wish that I was a more trusting guy or that I knew for sure that I could trust this maker as I have come to realize that paying a guy like that $400.00 for some expert guided tours though Joshua Tree National Park would be worth it. Not to mention it is a really cool idea that he has going there.
I'm an old film guy just playing catchup in this digital world. Help me out.
