Lock Circle Body Cap

If you’re a professional photographer taking your camera into extreme environments, the cheap plastic body cap that comes with your DSLR might not cut it. That’s where LockCircle comes in — it’s a solid billett aluminum body cap designed to seal your camera from the elements while providing a special grip for removal even if you’re wearing thick gloves. They’re available for Canon EF mount cameras in silver, titanium, and black, and will soon be available for Nikon’s F mount as well.

I have 3 DSLR cameras since 2003 and I have lost a few caps here and there, somehow they get misplaced over the years. Having a solid aluminum body cap won’t be something you misplace and it will protect the internals of your camera perfectly. Right now they only have the body cap for the Canon in silver, titanium, and black for $99 each, and the Nikon F mount will be coming soon. I think it would be pretty cool to have this on the camera and make sure that it remains there, the plastic ones I have are a bit flimsy and sometimes a bit loose, but this one looks like it would literally lock in and not let go.
