« on: July 06, 2011 10:00:17 AM »

We got a new camera for our vacation.  It's the fanciest camera I've ever had! 

It has a lens cap but you can only put it on when the camera is turned off.  I know myself -- I know I wouldn't turn off the camera and put on the lens cap until I am sure I am done with pictures for awhile.

So, I wanted to make something to give it a little protection while tramping around.

Luckily we had a long drive and that was the perfect time to crochet a cozy.  I wanted something that I could flip over the camera while it was still on but could flip off when I wanted to take a photo.

I found a bolt that fit perfectly in the tripod hole and I used that to screw the cozy to the camera.

Anyway, here it is, after two weeks of constant use, it's starting to show some pilling.  but it worked perfectly!

This is the bottom:

And here it is in use:

If you have any questions, please fire away!

OMG that is awesome, I have that exact same camera and have the same problem!

I collect cameras and this is such a good idea to protect my growing collection. Especially beucase i have no where to store them right now so there neatly stacked on the side of bed, some of them are almost 1,000 dollars so i really need to start making cozies lol <3
