how to stealth out your new 5D?
Nov 29, 2012

First why would you want to stealth your camera? Well if you travel you may already know and as Im a backpacker and travel to third world countries I don’t like to stand out which I already do with a DSLR but if it has no label that scream $$$ Canon or other major brand your chances of not catching attention increases.

How do you keep your camera “stealth” looking? I usually paint the white lettering black or overtape it with black Electric tape. What about the Strap? Do you paint the white lettering with fabric paint or just replace the strap with another one. I like the material from the Canon strap vs the Neoprene ones as I worry Neoprene is easier cut with a sharp knife or razor blade than the Canon strap when one wants to snatch your camera.
