    looks good

    posted by derekread on 11/06/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    looks good overall, painted well for a mass-produced item, no sharp edges, elastic band is thick cloth style elastic, plastic is quite thick, fairly comfortable (unless you have a big nose)
    Cons:
    might fit a little too tight for someone with a larger nose, the plastic might be a little too rigid for some people, not reall...

    posted by derekread on 05/03/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - tiny - can keep it on your camera at all times even when not using so not easily lost - accurate (enough for me) - useful for tripod setup (esp if you don't have one on your tripod already) - useful for hand held shots where you are not looking through th...
    Cons:
    - cannot use this and external flash in flash mount at the same time, obviously - the bubble level is pressure fit into the bla...

    no surprises, as pictured

    posted by derekread on 05/03/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - easier to use together with lens hoods than a standard lens cover - plastic is about as good as any brand name version - no logo or other visible markings on outside - works as expected
    Cons:
    None that I can think of.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - easier to use together with lens hoods than a standard lens cover (my main reason for purchase) - plastic is about as good as any brand name version - no logo or other visible markings on outside - works as expected
    Cons:
    The fit could possibly be better, sometimes a little fiddly to get it on, but once on I have had no troubles with it staying on.

    does the job well

    posted by derekread on 02/25/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    slightly bevelled tough metal light weight rounded corners seams are tight and keep out dirt / dust very well (but obviously not waterproof) connect/read/write led is obvious and a nice bright blue fast (only tested USB2 so far and with an SSD)
    Cons:
    USB port does not allow the cable to interface all the way in and it is not tight so it can pop out easily if you move the case...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
