CUSTOMISE, IMPROVE & PROTECT PRECIOUS GEAR
6 Ways To Mod Your Camera
Sugru is a soft-touch mouldable silicone that sticks to most materials. Use it to customise photographic equipment and improve your technique. It sets strong and turns into a durable, flexible rubber that is ergonomically responsive, protective and mighty grippy.
Technology Is Smart, But You’re Smarter.
Whether a pro or a novice shooter, we love our kit. But even the best cameras on the market can be improved. Photographers use Sugru to make subtle modifications to their equipment which ultimately enhances their technique.
Why is Sugru so clever?
Create Ergonomic Grips
When it comes to industrial design, one size fits all, unless you’re part of the luxury elite. Sugru’s advanced silicone technology has helped hundreds of photographers mould personalised rubber grips. Sugru comes in 10 colours so you can blend in or stand out.
Make Custom Mounts
Wherever you need to mount your gear Sugru will do the job out without damaging it. Should you need to remove it, simply cut the Sugru off, then clean surfaces with a cloth. It will form a strong bond to lots of materials like metal, glass, wood, ceramic, most plastics, and even fabrics!
Improve Control Buttons
Technology may become more compact and sophisticated, but it’s often the little things that get forgotten. Sugru’s mouldability makes it brilliant for improving the tiny control buttons on most cameras. You can also colour-code certain features.
Bespoke Focus Rings
Modern cameras’ auto capabilities are impressive. Yet our need to manually control our shots is imperative. Use Sugru to build bespoke focus rings. You’ll get better control over this sensitive mechanism, and it will fit your shooting style.
Protect Precious Kit
However much you look after expensive tech, there’s always a risk of losing vital components and accessories. Sugru is great for keeping lens caps to hand or making protective silicone cushions for the camera body. And even if you do drop it, Sugru’s shock-resistant properties could save it from serious damage.
Revive Classic Gear
The beauty of photography is its infinite variety, whether that’s style, subject matter or hardware. Sometimes we just want “that look” that only certain cameras achieve. Sugru allows you to adapt any camera to suit your technique. Nothing is out of reach.

Fix for technique
New York-based photographer, filmmaker, animator and heroine of ours, Amanda Lynn Kim, shares some fun ways she uses Sugru to enhance or fix her photo gear.
1-2: Created a custom grip for my camera body 📷
3: It adheres to fabric, so why not customize my camera strap 💕
4: Made two simple spirals that bounce back, allowing me to keep all my @lomography aperture plates together while also being able to take them out quickly to use! 🙌
5. Excuse my fingers but this lens cap has never stopped falling off since I added a UV filter. Used an old hair tie with Sugru to make a holder."
Fix for posterity
Yura wanted to fix her beloved vintage tripod that belonged to her grandfather. The feet on the legs had broken, so she repaired them with Sugru. It was quite a tricky fix, but mouldable glue was exactly the right solution. After 24 hours, when she discovered it had worked, her reaction is absolutely priceless (at 4:30)!
