Olympics Photographer Caught Having Lens Cap Dysfunction

A photographer at the London 2012 Olympics was spotted by a television camera making an embarrassing mistake that’s usually limited to newbies: forgetting to remove the lens cap. As he tries to photograph Japanese gymnast Kohei Uchimura using his DSLR’s live view, the photographer notices that his LCD screen is strangely blank. After a short period of befuddlement, he realizes the errors of his ways, quickly corrects it, and casts a classic sidelong glance to see if any of his photographer buddies were secretly laughing at him.

We shared a similar video last year, but that photographer had more of an excuse: he was shooting with a rangefinder.
