NX Pancake pouch

Hi,

I'm looking for small pouches like the one I got with the 20-50mm but I can't find what I need : even the smallest are too big for these little gems !

Any idea ?

Regards

Re: NX Pancake pouch - good question

Hi,

I was hoping that someone would offer an idea or two.

I am guessing that there are many owners of pancake lenses of various brands & mounts who would like some good options. I am interested in padded cases. A couple of years ago I remarked to a salesperson in a camera store that Lowepro should have an option or two in their lens case range for pancakes. I am surprised that they still do not have any (although the Compact Courier bags with included pancake case hanging off the shoulder strap comes close).

I would like to see a lens case small enough for a single pancake lens added to the Lowepro range. There may also be a smaller market for a case which holds two pancake lenses of similar diameters, with a different coloured opening (or facility for a label) at each end to indicate which lens lies at each end.

Perhaps a post in the Open Talk forum would field more ideas.

Geoff.

Re: NX Pancake pouch

since noone has suggested anything just yet, I would like to throw you an extreme example of what your time and patience can achieve if they are available. You may consider making your own using leather I was certainly surprised with the results of several months of labour, but I had spent an equal amount of time trying to find something appropriate on the web no avail.



leather case for 30mm pancake.

the lip on the lid keeps the lens snug.

I went berserk and made one for the 18-55mm, 18-200mm and the camera.

material and tools used for the project.

Re: NX Pancake pouch

Hi, last year I bought two of these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Coin-Purse-Zipper-Pouch-Neoprene-Pochette-Porte-Monnaie-/290606993902

(same seller)

He`s not selling any at the moment, but I guess you could try contacting him.
These are neoprene pouches, the 30 mm fits perfectly. 16 mm was a bit tight at the begining (it`s a bit longer), but it`s fine now. Pouches take up less space than Samsung originals, but I think they protect my lenses better.
Hop that helps...

Wonderful ! I was looking for other kind of pouches, but I've only found funny purses for kids or strange things. Of course, sellers couldn't really tell me if a Samsung NX pancake lens could be used with their products

These one look wonderful !

Re: NX Pancake pouch

I also found this : http://www.microlenspouch.com/

But I don't want to spend that much money, when I have neoprene MATIN (smallest is at least four  times too big)  pouches for one or two dollars !
