Ex­tras

Bird Watching (UK) - - Photo Feature David Tipling -

The ex­tras are where things have changed. The ob­jec­tive lens cov­ers have a new at­tach­ment, which keeps them se­cure but stops them flap­ping about, and can be re­moved eas­ily and re­placed with lugs to stop the hinge get­ting dam­aged. The neo­prene ‘comfort’ strap now has cir­cu­lar rather than flat cords at the end, mak­ing mov­ing the rain­guard much eas­ier, and these at­tach quickly and sim­ply us­ing a twist mech­a­nism. This en­ables you to switch rapidly and eas­ily to ac­ces­sories such as a float­ing strap (sea­watch­ers might like this), a har­ness or a bino­guard in the field. Fi­nally, the length of the strap it­self can be ad­justed and then se­cured in­stantly us­ing two twist con­trols.
