Bumperize Your Lenses
“For a fraction of the cost of your lens, the Lens Bumper gives you convenient, inexpensive insurance,” states Tom Nickell, the CEO of DeluxGear. “It provides far more protection than lens caps, filters, or hoods, and can be used with them.“
The Lens Bumper is encased in a tough 0.08” (2mm) santoprene outer cover, and its cushiony, water-resistant inner core is made of 0.25” (6mm) thick closed cell neoprene, which is the same material used in diving suits. This potent combination, already introduced with DeluxGear’s Lens GuardTM, provides SLR lenses with powerful impact protection against even the hardest of hits. But, unlike the Lens Guard, with the Lens Bumper you have the added convenience of keeping this protection on your lens while shooting, and of keeping your lens hood on your lens, too.
The Lens Bumper easily slides over the end of your lens or hood for a snug fit. Or, reverse your hood over the lens and slide the Lens Bumper over the inverted hood. When photographing, keep the Lens Bumper on the lens all the time. For additional protection if rain or dust kicks up, put the lens cap or a filter on the lens through the front opening of the Lens Bumper. On lenses with built-in hoods, like the popular Nikon 14-24mm fisheye, mount a filter on the Bumper.
Lens Bumpers come in 7 sizes, to fit lenses and hoods from 2 7/16 inches (6 cm) in diameter all the way to 8 1/8 inches (20.5 cm).
“DeluxGear now has a solution for every photographer, and for nearly every lens size,” according to Jeff Seidel of OmegaBrandess. “Use a Lens Guard for full lens protection when not shooting. Use the Lens Bumper if you want to protect the lens while shooting, or if you want to keep your hood on the lens all the time.”
All Lens Bumpers are Made in the USA. Suggested list prices range from $24.99 for the Small and Medium, to $74.99 for the “Giant.”
