Geek Out Your Cuffs with Camera Mode Dial Cufflinks

If the first level of photo-geekiness is wearing USB cufflinks, and the second level is wearing camera cufflinks, then these mode dial cufflinks must be level three. Boy are these geeky. You can pick them for $50 on Amazon.

P.S. The Canon 5D Mk 2 and 7D mode dial lock upgrade we mentioned yesterday will be available in the US starting December 6, 2010.

Locking Mode Dial Upgrade for the Canon 5D Mark II and 7D

Canonites in Japan who often find their mode dial inadvertently changed can now choose to have their camera upgraded with a locking mode dial. The service upgrade costs ¥10,500 (~$125) and adds a button to the center of the mode dial that must be pressed before the dial can be changed. Maybe DSLR makers should find a way to have this be an available (but not mandatory) option on all DSLR models. What do you think?

Update: This upgrade will be available in the US starting December 6th, 2010.

Lost Camera Mode Dial Replaced with Wooden Clone

Flickr user vamapaull tells the story of how his camera’s boring old mode dial magically turned into a wooden one:

A friend of mine borrowed a Fujifilm S5600 camera and somehow managed to lose the menu wheel.

After a few days of postponing the return of the camera, he showed up with the camera and a wooden menu wheel instead of the original that was made of plastic.

I have to say, this wooden wheel gives a little more coolness to the old camera.

Would you have the same reaction if your loaned camera returned to you with this “upgrade”?
