How to fix compact cameras lens curtain problem DIY cover


Hello viewers, I’ve got this little camera,
the Canon Powershot SX720HS,which is a pocket camera that I love because I can take it with
me on on all my outdoors activities however, I have never particularly liked this lens
cover curtain that most pocket cameras have as I thought I was going to break it.. and
in fact I did break it, and so I came up with a D.I.Y., solution. I measured the outside of the lens, which
is 55mm and I went to find a jar lid, and I found this one, pretty much of the same
size, and I micro-adjusted with this tin-can opener to make it a snug fit. You can make it as snug as you want, easy
to take it on and off when you want to take a photo, and this way the camera lens is much
more protected. I can put it in my pocket, without worrying,
it can get hit without breaking anything anymore. So, just a quick tip for today’s video, I
hope you like it and find it useful, because maybe this has happened to you as well. You’re welcome to LIKE the video by pressing

I have never particularly liked this lens cover curtain that most pocket cameras have as I thought I was going to break it.. and in fact I did break it. Eventually I would remove all the parts of the lens curtain, as they are not useful anymore. Hope you like it and find it useful, beacause maybe this has happened to you as well.
