Pelican Launches Line of Protective Camera Lens Covers

Pelican, a company known for making high performance hard-shell protective cases for a range of tasks, has partnered with CM Brands to launch a new “Pelican Outdoor” collection, which features new silicone-based rugged lens protectors.

The lens cover launch comes alongside several other new products for the Outdoor series including new sleeping pads, blankets, and field packs. The company says the new line is inspired by feedback from Pelican customers, soldiers, first responders, “weekend warriors,” and outdoorsmen.

CM Brands says that the Pelican Outdoor rugged collection offers the highest quality outdoor products for the modern-day adventurer. The company further states that the mission of the line is to provide premium, functional, and rugged outdoor equipment with no compromises.

The 25A grade silicone lens covers (which signifies the silicone is the softest in the range silicone can come in) will supposedly fit most professional lenses ranging from 56mm to 120mm in diameter — the cap dimensions are 2.75 x 2.75 x 2.75 inches (or 7 x 7 x 5 centimeters) and weigh 0.08 pounds. The company says that the covers provide a secure weather-sealing fit protecting from water, dust, and dirt as well as minor impact absorption. CM Brands also says that the silicone material makes the lens covers easy to pack up in small spaces for easy traveling.

The company says these new lens covers are specifically engineered and designed to protect every lens a photographer might own using the highest quality materials, crafted with premium construction.

“This silicone lens fits most pro-level camera lenses on the market. The high density and elastic silicone will keep your lens covered when it comes to dirt, moisture, scratches, and collisions, offering complete protection ensuring your gear is ready for your next adventure,” the company writes.

It is worth noting that these new Pelican silicon lens covers are quite similar in both design and pricing to the KUVRD Micro and Magnum lens covers that were released over a year ago.

The new rugged lens covers are available from the Pelican store for $25 and in one of two colors: “stealth black” or “coyote.”

Ernst Leitz Museum To Open New Interactive Photography Facility

The Ernst Leitz Museum in Leitz Park, Wetzlar is a modern museum dedicated to photography that, in October, will open a facility where visitors will be able to enjoy what it calls an interactive photography experience.

The museum will have four newly designed adventure areas that occupy about 600 square meters on the upper floors of the facility. The museum says the purpose of the interactive version of this display is to raise awareness of conscious perception — it wants attendees to try things out, get inspired, and discover the world of photography in a new light.

The four new visual experience areas will showcase optical phenomena in interactive stations with basic rules of photography displayed as a reference point. Each display concept and design is developed in partnership with the studio klv from Berlin, an interdisciplinary consulting and creative office specializing in the creation of interactive exhibits.

The first area will focus on “Seeing and Perceiving,” where optical phenomena are explained in an easy-to-understand way. This includes a giant screen that covers the museum’s large panoramic window and will open and close like a shutter when a guest approaches it.

A second area is dedicated to “Technology and History,” where visitors can browse historical photos, drawings, cameras, and designs that showcase Leica’s impact on photography over the generations. Additionally, this area includes information on how lenses are built, technical details of various camera components, and even a virtual darkroom with an interactive table to digitally recreate the steps used in photo development.

The third experience area will showcase the basic rules of photography and what influence different factors can have on photos taken at various interactive stations. This area will encourage visitors to use their phones and cameras with different settings to experiment with the reflections, colors, and shadows to fully understand the “diverse possibilities” of creative image design. It will also include a “Self-Portrait” station.

The last area will be a rotating set of special exhibitions on various topics presented by Leica, starting with an exhibit on Oskar Barnack and followed by plans for many more from passionate photographers and filmmakers from around the globe.

The new interactive photography exhibit at the Ernst Leitz museum is scheduled to open in October of 2021.
