I've had many of those metal lens hoods and many will take a lens cap on the front. Try some of the standard sizes eg 52 55 58 mm for starters.

Just bought 3 new Sony AG-R2 RX100 front grips from the local classifieds, one each for the S120 and the GM1, one spare (could go on the S95 if I ever using that again). Total cost about $23 delivered.

Finally broke down and bought one. The dual battery charger with extra battery is on order (we didn’t have any at the store).

I ordered a NAS to use as a backup at home (I have a Cloud backup, iDrive 5TB).
I want to have home backup so the files are readily available if some thing happens to my PC's.
So a Synology DiskStation DS418 and 4 x Toshiba N300 NAS 10TB 3.5" Serial ATA-600 are on their way.
Hopefully this will be enough for many years.
I will probably run the disks in RAID5.

Got myself a new Olympus this week:

Olympus Camedia C-2100UZ
A real classic. Mint, except for one stuck pixel.

And all of that cost me the princely sum of $15.63 (shipping included).
Shame about the stuck pixel, though...

I haven’t had a true compact camera in some time, and like the idea of always having something tiny on me. This will probably live in my glovebox or work backpack. Anyways, a more or less new Fuji XF1 for only $70. I like the compact size, raw file ability, macro function, decently fast zoom lens, and an actual x-trans sensor in a 2/3” format. The 12mp is fine with me.

You know you found a barely-used used camera when there are still clean demo stickers on it.

Looks to be accesoire week, this week, for me.

I havent bought a new bag since about 2002 or there about, so it was time for some baggy godness, more suitable for the smaller critters in the M43 universe. I have on order one Peak Design Field pouch in tan, one Tenba Skyline 4 and a Tenba Toolbox 8.

The first two is, I think, somewhat overlapping but the field pouch is based around fitting either the GM1 or the GX880 with 12-32 and 35-100 kit lenses, possibly also one of the tiny pancakes or the PL15.

The Skyline will probably fit the same kit, but is somewhat more intended to get a belt pouch for the GX9 with a pancake lens on.

The toolbox I need to see and assess as to how to best utilize, but there should be quite a few options for putting it to good use, I think, even if it is just some sort of drawer storage. Would have gotten one of each of the sizes, at 4-6 and 8, if it was in stock.

Also bought a second-hand Crumpler Tallee, its new but sans tags, I think that one is quite large. then again for $15 bucks, how wrong can I go? Plan for that is the G9 kit and caboodle or if it is way to large, I can probably resell it.

Only thing left on the list know is to get a PD strap for the field pouch, I have a slide lite and a leash, both in black, but I think I would like to treat myself to a sage green one to go with the tan pouch, but not sure if it should be the SL or the leash... :whistling:

It has the box and everything too. It was listed as ‘open box’, but as far as I know it could be brand new. Which is crazy for a 9ish year old camera. I’ll find out next week when it arrives.
