Tipster of the Day: Super Elastic Shooter

Isn't it such a perfect day for bungee jumping? how about a rodeo ride? hopping on a trampoline maybe? perhaps a plunge on the "Fujiyama":http://www.dailymotion.com/purplefinale/video/x2fgpi_fujiyama-onride-9-rear-seat_travel? And would it be so nice to "shoot-from-the hip" while doing all of these? here's how:

COLORSPLASH FLASH BLACK BELT by dux.x

So, for your little colorsplash to not drop and break while in action, just use an elastic black belt and make an 8 shape to involve the flash and your camera’s (in this case, the fisheye2 camera) lens barrel. Simple as that, and almost invisible, but very secure.

Now, “take your camera everywhere you go.” has a new deeper meaning. Thanks to LomoTips!

    The simplest tip on earth but for sure very usefull if you want to shot in such condition as that in the crazy Fujiyama video: did the guy attach his video camera to his body in this way too??? :)))))))))

    Fujikyu Highland is the best! Anyone coming to Tokyo should go there instead of Disneyland (if you have to choose just one). www.fujiq.jp/

    Great tip! I'll take my Lomo next Fujikyu trip :D

    I agree this is a very useful tip. There's nothing worse than a slipping flash. I've had this problem before.

    I like how sometimes the simplest of tips can be the best, thank you for this tip, I have the fisheye one but have hot-shoe cameras that could use this tip
