Most likely a repeat but it bears repeating...

Keep the camera in a bag when not in use.

Carry spare batteries.

Anti-static dryer sheets & silver anti-static bags

Post by dewnorth » Sat Jul 31, 2010 4:01 pm

To be anal retentive, I put clothes dryer sheets in with my cameras. Maybe rubbing the cameras down with dryer sheets might help too. And maybe not.

There are anti-static ziplock bags used for computer circuit boards and other electronics to prevent static shocks from ruining circuitry. Maybe they might be better than regular ziplocks to keep cameras in. (?????)

The anti-static bags I've seen are silver in color, so they would reflect sunlight if left in the sun.

hey thanks! i found something similar at ichiban kan—it was only a dollar! so it may suck, but it has the bendy wire legs, and it's nice and heavy. it should be better than using my dusty shoe for low-angle shots.
