ready tags

    Newer Older

    sitting here the other day, and i looked at these post-it tags that i usually use to mark pages in books, magazines, catalogs, etc..at work, and thought they would work well to mark empty cards and full batteries (especially since they're green).

    a very simple idea, but it has worked very well for me to be able to manage this, and not guessing if i have dropped a dead battery back into my bag after a shoot.

    when i use the card or battery, i simply throw away the tab, and replace it when i get home and charge or dump the card on the HD.

    the tab is also most helpful at removing the CF cards from the gepe card case, it's a VERY tight fit, and before using these, was a struggle to remove them in a hurry.

      I tried this and it didn't work. The tab was sticky on just one side, and just my luck, it was usuallly the wrong side.

      why you don't just flip full CF in the case and use the cover for batteries provided by canon?.
