    I only use a lens cap when the lens is in storage.

    Maybe it just seems longer when you are watching him and squirming, thinking 'glad it was not me' cause the entire video goes for only 21 seconds.

    Not your computer, the IOC have had the video removed from youtube, which is where I linked to.

    Hmmm,

    Is it because he's using a Canon?
    (honestly I'm not sure if it's a canon it's just my best guess)
    the censoring I mean, not the lens cap.
    they might be an official sponsor *grin*

    Regards and thanks for the reminder to pay attention to the basics...

    I just knew that this thread had to deteriorate into one of those types.

    There might yet be truth in the rumours that a lot of photographers are painting those grey white muddy coloured lenses black and using opposition brand lens caps so that they don't look like they are using the last decades equipment.

    Given I use Pentax I should be the last one trying to start a brand war, we're seriously outnumbered...

    Hey, not all photographers shooting Olympians mind using slightly dated equipment...

    ...

    Perhaps it's a branded ND filter and we're just not getting his brilliance....

    What's wrong with a bit of fun and surely the laughs wouldn't hurt their brand.

    Perhaps they are trying to protect the good name of a sponsor (pure conjecture on my part)
    Or they might be taking down any youtube videos of the Olympics...

    And I mean if people work out that any dumb monkey can buy a big lens,
    people might realise that having a big lens does not automatically mean you are a good photographer,
    And then my cover will be blown...

    (Yes the size of my lens truly exceeds my ability)

    I heard a news story on triple J radio about a week ago about the censorship of the olympics in relation to media content. Basically unless it's on TV they will ban/remove it. That includes/but is not limited to: youtube, facebook, myspace (if anyone still uses it), twitter or any other type of media or social media site.

    It was very interesting to listen to as even general public that have drawn the olympic rings on a shirt could be up for a hefty fine.
    Those bodies: 2x gripped 7D's
    The bits on the front: Canon 35mm f2 is usm, Sigma 50mm f1.4 ex dg hsm, Sigma 85mm f1.4 ex dg hsm, Sigma 10-20 EX DG HSM, Canon 24-105 F4 L is, Sigma 120-300 F2.8 EX DG HSM, Sigma apo 2x ex dg teleconverter
    The bits on top: Canon 600EX-RT, Canon 430EXII

    I was out one freezing night, having my first go at star photography. I was trying different methods... long exposure, stacking etc. I left my lens cap on for an hour long exposure.... blissfully unaware :-)

    Yep, they are removing all content off youtube apparently, and probably other sites as well. I am friends with one of the Aussie Olympians and he has not put anything on his FB page since the Games started. I have been sent the occasional email, with a photo or three, and each email he has stipulated that I am not to put it on the net at all.
