Cheap Trick #5: Skin your camera

If you are shooting digital then you have an lcd screen on your camera. Whether you have a big camera or a little one you will want to use it often and you will own it for at least a couple of years. The lcd screen is one of the most important functions of your camera, so protect it by putting a “skin” on it. You can buy skins for smart phone and for just about any device with an lcd screen. If you buy on that is die cut especially for your equipment you will pay a whole lot for it; on the other hand if you buy a universal skin you’ll get 3-5 in a pack and you can cut it down to the right size and skin everything in sight! It also means that you will likely replace it more often as it gets scratched up giving yourself a fresh lcd screen once every 6 months! Now that’s cool and cheap!
