So what other accessories from Sony are real cool?
The new LCS-WR1AM wrapping cloth, that’s what! I got one in brown. It’s like a bag for your camera, but foldable!
The Japanese are very clever – this might’ve been something from their Origami books!
Here, it wraps a Sony Alpha 900 body with Minolta 24-105mm F3.5-4.5(D) lens and Sony HVL-F58AM flash. Perfect general-purpose combo (which isn’t as chunky as the Sony Carl Zeiss 24-70mm F2.8 SSM.)
The ring at the end, is an elastic band that can catch onto the lens. Practice will tell you whether to put the camera more towards the center or towards the sides, so that the elastic band will wrap around the lens nicely.
Here, it wraps a Sony Alpha 900 body with Minolta 24-105mm F3.5-4.5(D) lens and Sony HVL-F20AM flash. Perfect social event/party combo! (Alternatively, a smaller Minolta/Sony 50mm F1.4 can be used…)
Of course, it is not limited to small lenses – here it wraps a Sony Alpha 900 body with Sony Carl Zeiss 135mm F1.8 lens.
It would’ve fit the Sony HVL-F20AM flash in as well, but the HVL-F58AM flash would not fit, so it would go into its own belt pouch. Which isn’t half bad because you don’t need to carry any camera bags at all! I don’t find it fashionable to be walking around with a huge backpack, looking like a turtle in the process (I’ve always been a fan of sling bags.)
There is, however, the Optimus Prime trailer paradox… where does the cloth go when it’s unwrapped?
