The bandaid Lens Band from Lens Band is a unique solution to an age old problem. When using zoom lenses, especially extra long zooms, there is often a tendency for the lens barrel to "creep", i.e. extend due to its own weight when pointed either upward or downward. The Lens Band presents a simple and unique solution to this issue. The strong silicone rubber band stretches over the zoom ring of your lens and holds it firmly in place.

In addition to preventing this kind of problem, it also aids when shooting with a tripod where slower shutter speeds may be required, such as in macro photography when operation of the zoom ring may not be required. For anyone who works out in the field and carries or hangs his camera over his shoulder, lens creep is a common problem that can cause undo stress on the both the lens and your back. The inexpensive Lens Band offers you a straightforward solution to this potentially nagging problem.

It's easy to use. Stretch the Lens Band over your lens. Position it over the zoom ring when not in use. When ready to use it, slide half of it over the non-moving portion of the lens body. The pressure of the band will prevent the lens from slipping out of place. Just make sure the Band does not interfere with your focus ring.

As an added benefit to the Lens Band, it can also be used to remove filters that have become stuck. It works on manufacturer's filters from 67mm to 110mm or 2.75" (7.0 cm) to 4.5" (11.4 cm) in diameter. With the firm grip it provides, filters can be loosened without any potential damage to either the filter or the front element of your 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.

    Comments about Lens Band (Red):

    This is a practical, simple but effective device for preventing lens creep. I put one on my Nikkor 70-200mm and my Sigma 50-500mm and the lens no longer elongates when vertical.

                Zoom, shmoom -- I'm using this on an old Hasselblad lens which I'm putting on my new EOS 6D. There's no zoom to use it on. Those old silver lenses had focusing rings that were really hard to turn. And, the gear type grip assists on the rings were hard on the fingers. The lensband makes focusing with this old lens a lot easier.

                      Did what I expected it to do. Solved the annoying lens creeping problem of the Canon 24-105 F4. It is a bit hard to install, but once installed, I can find a nice point where the lens does not creep and I can still zoom in and out.

                                Product works well on my Canon 24-105mm f/4. I put on the back side close to the body and grab some of the edge on the lens. It helps when I have my camera on a rapid sling.

                                    I can walk around the city without having to worry about the zoom lens extending and hitting something or someone!

                                          Looks nice, but it's not easy to move it back and forth when using zoom lens.

                                              It would be easy to write this off as a ridiculous accessory for somebody who just has to buy something else to go with their camera. Not so. I got one and used it with my 6D and 24-105 while carrying them with a BlackRapid sling. I'd say it's essential for this setup. Otherwise the lens would extend on its own while I was walking.

                                                  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.

                                                    I don't often carry the 70-400G mounted, when I do I have it on a monopod. However, since it does not have a lock to avoid zoom creep I have the Lens Band.
