But no more!
After having far too many shots missed due to rain, mist and dust, I had to do something.
And so, here it is: The easy to use, Easy to access, and easy to make, Lens tissue dispenser
Step 1: Materials
Thread, sturdy but nothing special
Material: I used an old boot, which suited my purposes very well, but any sturdy water proof material that will tolerate sewing is just fine.
Fastener: I used a buckle off of my boot, but any buckle, snap, or even Velcro pad would do just as well. This will be used to hold the dispenser to the strap of your camera or camera bag, so it should be reasonably easy to work, but doesn’t need to take much weight.
Waterproof sealer or glue would make an excellent precaution if you think you’ll be in some serious weather, in my case I didn’t use it, but it’s not a bad idea.
Thin piece of plastic, to line the inside of the dispenser. This will steady the sides, and make for less friction on the inside with makes it easier to remove a tissue without tearing any part of it. Any bit from a milk jug or packaging that will tolerate being folded a bit.
