If your anything like me you probably loose things more than you buy them :(

I've just lost a Tamron 77mm Flower lens hood for my 10-24 I've looked on the interweb and ebay but I can only find a screw in one but I want an original so I can reverse it for transport. Anybody know where I can get one in the UK?

Any leads appreciated :)

Thanks

James

Sorry about the hood, just lost my LCD cover worth around $1 to make, <$10 in the US and here they are bush rangers/bandits and want $30 and on line in oz they are cheaper at $35. Just texted my daughter on holiday in honk Kong to try and get me one. I don't like being held at gun point. :evil:

Cheers

I just lost my GPS a few weeks ago.... errr ... if you call having cameras fall off cliffs or into the water and you never recover them then I have lost 3 7D bodies, 1 50D body, 3 100-400 lenses, 1 100 macro lens and 1 24-105 lens in the last 1.5 years or so... ya... I've learned to be more careful of late. Oh... and at least 10 memory cards.

Wolfsong, you should start tethering your gear to yourself so if it falls, you fall or you save it haha..

Well... what have I lost? Damn, I just lost my thought.

Yeah... eneloops are disappearing everytime you don't look at them. But I guess that's it. I'm quite careful not to loose anything - I even still have all my memory cards.
I just wonder where my eneloops are... :roll:

LOL I'm actually pretty good compared to some ppl I know guys... last summer I was out with a friend from europe who shoots for some big wildlife magazines over there. We were going canoeing and I warned him to get a dry bag or some pelican cases but he insisted his lowpro was good enough. We never tipped in the canoe but when we were climbing a small rock face maybe 30 meters high he lost his pack while pulling it up. 2 full frame bodies and one crop frame body... 200-400 lens, 400 prime and 600 prime gone... he didnt even bother trying to retrieve it... probably due to shock :shock:

When I go with a group of ppl on ecotours we usually average 2 cameras going bye bye... I've been lucky in this regard never having lost one on one of these outings.

Honestly though.. I think that is the nature of the beast though when it comes to wildlife photography in remote areas you are not familiar with... especially if in rainforest climates. Hard to protect your gear in areas like this unless its in something air tight.

I am nowhere near as talented as Wolfsong at loosing camera gear :P , but have lost a bit of fishing gear.

Once a new game rod with a Shimano TLD 25 with new 30pound line on it. It fell out of the boat, while we were drifting in reasonable current. Without thinking I dived after it, but it sunk faster than I could swim. They then got me with the boat, it was 50 m away by the time I came up. Tip, don`t do that, it was stupid and I wasn`t thinking.

I lost a little bream rod when I shut the car door and broke its tip off.

Broke two trout fishing rods during a bushwalk when I fell backwards climbing rocks with backpack on and smashed them. Have dropped fishing knife over the side of boat and a reel that I was fitting to a rod when a wave struck us unexpectantly.

I also lost a big surf rod when we were big chasing Mulloway over near the Australian Bight just surf fishing, I was rigging up one rod when the other one went. The rod holder fell over when the incoming tide had loosened the sand and it just went off into the surf being dragged by something big. The Mulloway, Snapper and sharks cruise the channel just in the surf, so not far from the edge. You can see the channel in the pic, its only 10-20m from edge of sand

Because I can here is a brag photo, got this one 6 years ago. They are a beautiful fish, I feel a bit sad catching them. So where we can we release them, but the big ones don`t recover well after a big fight and are likely to die anyway. We usually go there for a week once every two years, its a two day drive just to get there.

I can't believe it, we went for lunch again at the seaway and I found my LCD cover that I lost last week, it has a few scratches on it but it will do the job it was designed for.


Cheers
