The black BodyGuard CB from LensCoat is a camera cover that is used under all conditions to protect your camera from everything from scratches and "dings" to cold weather. In addition to the basic protective nature of the cover, it also can be used to reduce shutter noise in venues where "quiet" is the operative word. Although not a formal blimp type design, it can help reduce the noise traditionally associated with current DSLRs.
It's made from rugged neoprene and is comfortable in your hand. There are finger slits on the side for extra access to the various switches and buttons of your camera. You can even slide your finger under the cover for direct access to the shutter release button.
The BodyGuard slides on and off easily making battery exchange or memory card replacement easy. There is even room for your flash and camera strap. It is designed to fit prosumer bodies without the optional body grip installed. This version comes in a matte all-black finish to better blend in where desirable. Or, it can be used just for its protection value.
