    Brilliant DP1 idea

    I apologize if this has already been brought up here, but I just saw this myself and thought it was worth mentioning here. The idea was kindly presented by Georges Noblet on DPR, and the pic is "borrowed" from his post. It is simply a piece of rubber washer cut to size and glued on to the back of the camera. It is close enough to the focus wheel to prevent it from turning too easily, and it extends out just beyond the focus wheel to prevent it from being turned by rubbing on your clothing (or skin if you have to be shooting in a nudist colony). I will definitely be making this mod to my camera. Good stuff. Thanks to Georges.

    What a great idea! I may have a go at doing that as well.

    Now I just need to work out how to swap a GRD2 screen into my DP1 and I'll be happy.
