Re: Thanks for the Idea - Youtube

I went to Youtube and found an excellent clip by Ben Willmore.

I tried his method a few times, made a few slight adjustments and I think I'll prectice each day over the next week or so and have it down.

Never more than one lens in each hand at a time.

Yup, that's the idea. However, I wouldn't put my rear lens cap in my pants pocket where it could pick up lots of dust and lint.
If a pocket, the breast pocket in a shirt.

But if possible, I don't put it in pocket at all to save one step. As mentioned, with smaller lenses I can hold it in the hand (palm) in addition to a lens.

Thanks again for the idea to go to Youtube.
