Weather Seal Your Canon DSLR Lenses With Dust Donut 0

If you’re looking for an affordable way to protect your Canon lenses from dust and moisture, the Dust Donut might just help you in that department.

As a Canon user, you probably already know that almost all Canon EF lens mounts doesn’t come with some kind of protection from dust particles and moisture.


That’s the reason why Tyler Sterbentz of California started the Dust Donut, a Kickstarter project that is already way beyond its funding goal of $2,000. It means that the camera accessory is going to see the light of day.

According to the project, the weather resistant seal is made “to a level of precision found only in aerospace engineering.”
