Flying With a Camera -- Use These Tips for Flying With a Camera

How Can I Safely Travel with My DSLR Camera and Photography Gear?

The idea is that the lens attached creates a greater chance of damaging the equipment if jostled while traveling because of the extra weight and shape. Also it all fits better in camera bags that aren't huge when everything is detached. You may think the idea of a weather proof body cap is trivial, but I feel that it is useful, even if it is limited use. It would be cheap and easy to produce. A plastic bayonet mounted cap with a rubber gasket. Charge $5. I think some people would buy it. Maybe not a lot but I think people would.

And if somebody is willing to produce this thing...

...than why not a body cap with a little more function?
I've been down this road before.
There have been threads abou this and there *is* an OPTech solution - but not for Pentax.


When it comes to lens caps, they make one.

OP/TECH USA Lens Mount Cap

I bought a few of these and they don't really fit very well.
They seemed to be designed for K mounts without the electrical contacts.

I agree Pentax should make a WR combination of both a body cap and lens cap.

I would like to pack my bodies/lenses into things and not worry about moisture.
