March 14th, 2012

Carbon Fiber.jpgWhether you’re looking to add a little
bit of extra protection to your gear or simply add some style, a
little carbon fiber will do the trick.

The tutorial written up by the folks at

couldn’t be simpler. You’ll need scissors, the
carbon fiber itself, and a heat gun or hair dryer. And of course
you’ll need the thing you’re actually planning on putting the carbon
fiber on. The tutorial shows how to apply it to a lens hood, but
there are countless other applications.

If you want to go for the full-on
automotive carbon fiber look, you’ll also need some clear lacquer
spray paint, but keep in mind that this makes things even shiner and
more likely to catch significant reflections.
