    Default Ever wonder if somebody make a silicon cover for your DSLR?

    Hmm i'm thinking, anybody knows where to buy & material to fuse silicon sheets?

    cos i am thinking, instead of gaffer, y not have 1 like the silicon rubber type of cover for handphones, would be so cool... esp if its like black or transparent, nice to feel too... scratch resistant and maybe an opending for LCD...

    I went to the shop here that wraps the plastic on the phones and cameras, I asked him if he could wrap DSLRs, he said he can wrap cameras. So I pulled out my 300D and he said "no! it's too big!"
    he probably COULD do it, if i paid a lot...

    it is quite impractical to wrap the whole DSLR because you need to open the covers for the battery, cover for the CF cards, etc ....

    You can if you use the cling wrap!!

    Or shrink wrap!!

    I think the latter is better.

    Just buy the shrink wrap plastic and cut to size. Wrap the body and use the heater-cutter and go over it. Then use the hair dryer (heat mode) and the wrapper shrinks to fit the body!

    It looks good for display in the shop front. But I doubt you want to cut a hole in the mount area and attach the lens to shoot. If so, no more weather seal!

    I would like mine to have GT racing stripes, an air foil, low profile tyres and bucket seats.

    Oh .... you are talking about cars

    I hope so because I was thinking how a silicon covered car would have less wind resistance.

    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Yes, my notebook. Asus. Used rubberized paint on handrest surface. After 1 or 2 years it become sticky. It is so painful and make me want to remove it. Imagine if it is sticky on your dSLR .

    yup gaffer suffices actually.. for me i gaffer my 350d cuz of the inherent texture of my body, since its matte feel and does wear off easily.. so a good gaffering would do it well =) since anyways i've created templates for the body...

    crazy aint i? lol but yea gaffer does the job well enuff...
