Helping to prevent zoom creep, the purple Lens Band from LENSband is a simple silicone rubber band specifically designed to stop unwanted lens movement from occurring. Sized to fit most DSLR zoom lenses, this band will stretch over zoom rings ranging in diameter from 67 to 110mm in order to prevent the lens from moving under its own weight when angled upward or downward. When not in use, the band can be stored over your lens and can also be used to provide increased grip for removing jammed or stuck filters on the front of your lens.

This band is designed to fit most DSLR lenses with zoom rings ranging in diameter from 67 to 110mm.
Made from silicone rubber, the band offers a secure, snug fit on the lens to prevent unwanted zoom creep.
For use, the band should be secured partly over the zoom ring and partly over a non-rotating portion of the lens in order to secure the desired position.
Band can also be used to help remove jammed or stuck filters on the front of the lens.

    Although its pretty easy to compare the Lens Band to typical $1 awareness bracelets, the Lens Band is much thicker and stronger. In the past I've used a Lens Band to tame creeping on a Nikkor 18-200 and it works great. Now a days, I shoot a good deal with a Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 with the lens hanging from a BlackRapid strap (another great item). However, carrying that way, the switches on the lens can bump against your leg. Every once in a while the focus limiter switch (FULL inf-5m) will get knocked into the 5m position and I only notice when I have a dog running at me and I miss the shot. So.... I thought this might me a great application for a lens band. Sure enough, the Lens band wraps over the switches on the big 70-200, and the problem is solved. When I do need to turn the VR on/off, just roll the edge of the Lens band to expose the switches.

    Although the lens band does work, it involves some clumsy maneuvering to get it into place. Changing it as you zoom is certainly cumbersome. I'm using it on the new Nikkor 24-120 f4 zoom, and although there is an occasional minor creeping problem, it's an issue I can easily live with. I'm not sure the lens band is really worth the effort.

      Too tight on larger diameter lenses

        Comments about Lens Band (Gold):

        Bought this for my Nikkor 28-300mm which has severe lens creep. Specs for the Lensband say "Fits lenses with a 2.6-4.3" / 67-110 mm-diameter zoom ring". The 28-300 has 82 mm (about 3-1/4") zoom ring diameter and the Lensband is very tight. It does stop the creep when positioned right, but shifting the band each time the zoom has to be adjusted is just not practical because of the tight fit. I may use it as an added protection or to help removing stuck filters. To stop the creep I will try ordinary rubber bands or just use the lock switch. IMO not worth the money.

        Attempt to stop Canon lens creep

        About Me Semi-pro Photographer

        Comments about Lens Band (Red):

        As is typical of some of Canon's zoom lenses, my copy is older with pronounced 'zoom creep.' I tried the Lensband product in hopes it would help alleviate this problem to a degree. Very hard to get on and once on, it is OK, and does help somewhat with stopping lens creep. I have not tried to stretch it diagonally across the lens like the picture shows. Not bad product, just expected a little more.

        Simple rubber band works better

        About Me Photo Enthusiast

        Comments about Lens Band (Red):

        Solved creep problem of my Nikon 18-200 with a plain thick (1/4 inch)rubber band from office supply. Rubber sits in the groove between the housing and the moveable extension part of lens. Adds just enough tension to work and you don't even have to remove it to shoot.

          Comments about Lens Band (Red):

          This band is a great idea and does what it says, but in sliding the band off (with a two fingers) the band broke. It was properly sized for the lense.
          Good thing I bought a couple extras. Considering what it is, it is a bit overpriced.

          I've ordered this alone with 42.2 mm 1.7 3/4 lens as it was advised as a suplemental item. It is way to big to fit this type of lens & doesn't have any groves as well.

                    i like the material. is hard to extend.I have a sigma 28-105, even that I didnt buy this to avoid lens creep (the sigma don't suffer of lens creep), i bought it just to protect the lens and has something around the lens in case I put it in the floor. the description said that this is for "67 to 110mm". My lens is an 82mm filter lens and the band is REALLY tight.. so i am not sure if i recommend it for a lens over 90mm's... I could be wrong.. but it is just my opinion.

                            It's just a big fat rubber band, but it's the right size and it works - stops my Canon 24-105mm lens from fully extending when hanging on the camera strap. Use on any lens that creeps badly.

                                    I love this! Not only does it hold my lens in place, it makes it look really nice and different. Also, this specific one glows in the dark!! XD
