Your camera's a tool, not a jewel.

Re: Your camera's a tool, not a jewel.

I was fortunate to get an early lesson in this.  When I got my first dSLR, I remember pre-practicing lens-changes in the bathroom of my house because it was the smallest room, tiles floor, no dust.

A week later, a Pro photographer showed up at the door to take editorial photos of my kid's academic team.  This gal had two bodies, and 4 lenses in her photo vest.  None of them had a rear lens cap, or body cap.  I asked her why at the end of the shoot, and she replied, that they were just a tool, and not as delicate as everyone makes them out to be.

Now I'm not ready to go an hour with no rear-lens caps, or body caps, but I am less worrisome about my gear
