Can I use a battery grip with my Snug-It DSLR Skin?
Due to the nature of the skin and in order to provide the most amount of protection for your camera, the Snug-It DLSR Skin includes a lip along the bottom of the camera body. This ensures a snug fit, prevents debris from getting beneath the skin, and protects the bottom of your camera from damage when setting it down on rough or dirty surfaces. Due to this protective lip, a battery grip will not fully connect with your camera. We have had some customers modify their Snug-It DLSR Skin and remove this lip with a sharp pair of scissors or a razor blade, then connect their battery grip with very happy results. While Delkin cannot recommend this modification, it is always an option to you should you choose to use a battery grip with your Snug-It DSLR Skin.
My Snug-It DLSR Skin came with two LCD covers, which one should I use?
When DLSR manufacturers started to build in flip-out LCD screens, we decided to include soft LCD screen covers that could be adhered directly onto the LCD screen’s surface. This replaced, for these models, the standard hard plastic LCD screen cover that we would normally include. Several customers really liked these, and preferred them to the hard plastic LCD screen covers that slipped into a groove built into the skin. For this reason, we now include one of each type with each Snug-It DLSR Skin. Models that utilize a flip-out LCD screen will include two soft adhesive covers and no hard plastic cover, while DSLRS with standard LCD screens will include one of each.
I lost my hard plastic LCD Screen Cover, can I get a replacement?
Please contact our Customer Service Team and we’ll be happy to help you out with a replacement. We’re available Monday through Friday between 8am and 5pm, PST.
What does “Powder Infused Silicone” mean?
Normal silicone covers for cell phones and other electronics use a standard silicone that is tacky to the feel. It is easy and inexpensive to produce, and also provides a bit of added grip. The downside is that it usually collects a lot of debris very quickly, and can actually attract more lint, dust and contaminants to your device than if you weren’t using any protection at all. Because of this, we infuse our silicone material with powder before it goes into the mold. The powder creates a smooth feel to the silicone, and prevents debris from sticking to it. This added level of protection keeps your camera body clean, while still lending added grip.
Will the Snug-It DLSR Skin cover my camera’s buttons?
Snug-It DLSR Skins cover and protect all of the buttons on your camera body; button icons and functionality queues are molded into the skin so that they are visible and easy to find, while providing complete protection from dust and debris. Rotating dials are usually left open and unobstructed so that they can turn freely. Battery doors and ports will generally have a flap covering them, which can be peeled back to allow access without having to remove the skin. Sensors, microphones and speakers are left unobstructed. Careful decisions are made in the design of each skin that are specific to the camera model to ensure the best level of protection with the most ease of use.
