How does it differ from the Sony protector? Also, does it include a protector for the top LCD?

You're right. When I looked it up on the U.S. eBay by description it took me to holders for eight batteries, not for four batteries.


Actually, it was exactly the same thing. First, I was wrong about the holders being for eight batteries. It was the same as you ordered -- eight 4-battery holders. Anyway, I ordered four 4-battery holders for $1.49 US, including shipping, and they sent eight!

I really don't understand the economics of this. U.S. domestic postage for this would be more than $2.00. How can they ship from Hong Kong for $1.49 including shipping?

For a camera with an articulating screen, such as the a77, the factory screen protector (or equivalent, if you can find one) is a must. The screens are easily scratched. The thick, third-party screen protectors I've seen will not allow the screen to be properly parked in reversed (screen towards camera) position. I haven't tried a hood. Are there any that will work with the a77 and are easily removable?

The pop-up shades you buy (I think the company is Delkin?) are useful.

I always snap off the pop up shade bit and have the plastic cover and eyepiece attached to the camera. It protects the screen much better can be removed and cleaned without problem.

Years ago I walked in to the kitchen and found and found my old Minolta 5D camera with the screen smashed. God know how it had happened (I'm guessing Danielle had knocked it on to the floor in the night or something). The camera was binned.

Point is, with a decent screen protect (Like the pop up shade), the cameras become virtually bullet proof. I have them attached to a 7D and an A700. They've all been dropped at weddings (The wedding guests hear me swear in blind panic!), but the cameras live on...

I also think one of those pens for cleaning the sensors are good too - come in useful on many occasions... I can't believe how easily dusts gets in to the cameras!

AA and AAA battery holders, pack of 8 for... wait for it, $1.60. And then 90c postage on top of that. Score!!

Good for keeping the batteries for the various devices together (flashes mostly) so the batteries don't get mixed up. I only load them up when I am about to use them so this provides a neat way to store them on the shelf and in the camera bag.

Since my flashes use batteries four at a time I find these a little more useful for me:

A proper contoured eye cup - extended variety if possible.

I have found that metal filter stack caps are indispensable for carrying filters.

For carrying three (3) Sony InfoLITHIUM NP-FM500H battery packs, I employ a small, watertight, transparent plastic box which is normally intended to carry and to protect a cell phone in wet, outdoor environments.

This box measures approximately 15,2cm x 4,1cm x 7,4cm. It has a gasketed, hinged top which can be "latched" closed against water leakage. The box is equipped with a small lanyard. This box easily fits into a pocket or a photo bag.

It is the "WATERTIGHT CELLPHONE DRY BOX",

It is available via   www.outdoorproducts.com


Outdoor Products, 1919 Vineburn Avenue, Los Angelec, CA 90032

The price is less than, or approximately $5,00 US
