So I came upon my first camera bag (box actually) and was going through my old Canon extras and found this...



Now I got all my equipment from my dad when I was 12, and I've NEVER known what this was, it obviously went on the camera strap but I could never figure out what it was for, it didn't fit on the viewfinder so it wasn't for blacking out the viewfinder for long exposures, besides It already had a rubber piece for that...

If it weren't for an APUG member complaint here that they never give you a place to store an extra battery, I would never have realized that's just what this is!!



The battery goes inside, and then the camera strap cloth sort of keeps it from falling out. Now in practice I can't be sure it's very secure, but it's kind of neat to discover this 18 years later...

Thanks APUG!
