Now that I have officially dropped my D80 (see my post here
) I believe this cameraArmor is something I need to purchase. I've saved the camera from falling about... 7 times in the last 4 months at my desk job alone! However, number 8 actually landed. Last Sunday, the camera nearly tumbled out of the backpack I carried it in but I snatched it right before it entered a free fall...
It's looking like a dream send...
Oh, and regarding the lens hood issue: New Lens Hood
(@ 56 seconds) that may or may not improve it.
