p.1 #1 · Switching lenses through the day


Curious as to what all of you are doing in terms of how you switch through lenses throughout the day, obvious it's easy if you have an assistant but when you don't...

Do you leave both your rear cap and your lens cap off? Are you using lens filters so you can leave the cap off?

I've noticed watching some of the CreativeLive instructors they leave both caps off or more often at least the lens cap. I think both Sal and J* have both off (yes I am aware of the general opinion on J*'s photography but I am just curious about everyone's day-of workflow/shooting flow right now)

I just keep the lens caps off while the lenses are in my shoulder bag. Makes swapping lenses quick. Once i'm done for the day and i put lenses in my rolling bag I'll put the rear lens caps on.

I tend to leave caps off during the day...sometimes the wifey comes in behind me and puts them back on. For me, speed is the issue, and I don't want to be fumbling with caps. Besides, the most often I touch them the more often I lose them. We only have a few lenses with filters on, btw.

I always leave rear caps and hoods on, and I swap out of a Boda bag. Never been hindered by it, and I don't have to worry about crud in the lens mount/contacts. Front caps go back on at end of day when everything gets packed into a Pelican case.

Front and rear caps come off ONLY when the lens is in use. Otherwise they are on 24/7. I carry 7-8 lenses and two bodies on a belt system (Think Tank + LowePro) and change lenses frequently - never dropped a lens or had any other mishap. Don't be in a rush when changing lenses, plan ahead, get help if needed.

I keep rear caps on, front off. My gear is regularly exposed to sand and it never all comes off, no matter what I do to clean it. So I try to keep sand out of the body (and off the sensor) by keeping rear caps on the lenses.

Depends on the lens. Ones I use a lot, rear cap with that facing up, no front. Things like macro that only come out once or twice I recap front and back. Try to fully recap things before I go home. Mostly to know I have them all. Hoods on lenses with big fronts like a 70-200. No filters.

Even on my batteries I keep the caps on (yes those orange things) so yes I keep both rear and front on all the time when not on the camera, no filters though.

I always have both lens caps on. Only done 1 wedding but didn't find it a problem quickly changing and having to remove the caps.
