Slowly getting the new RX1 in shape

Thanks to those of you who have offered advice on optimising the handling of this camera. Today I went on a bit of a shopping spree in one of our local camera malls (great having malls choc full of camera stores). Anyway, based on the suggestions here, I picked up the following:

  1. A Gordy's wrist strap (they only had the sting type, but according to the Gordy site, it's strong enough).
  2. A $20 metal cut-away lens hood (bit cheaper than the Sony one )  To make it work, I had to use the lens cap from my old Sony F828 ... the RX1 cap still works, but not so easy to get on.
  3. B+W skylight filter for extra lens protection
  4. Red dragon black beep for the shutter button ... I love this thing. You engage the shutter with your finger joint rather than fingertip, and it's just so much smoother. Great addition

Thanks to all of you who offered ideas... much appreciated.
