Sick of reaching into your bag to grab a lens, only to pull out the wrong one by mistake? Canadian-based Field Made has come to the rescue, bringing some order and swagger to your kitbag with stylish lens and camera body indicators. 

Most of us think we know which lens is which, when digging around in the depths of our Mary Poppins-esque camera bags. However, even the best of us needs a visual indicator in some circumstances – maybe you're rummaging round in the dark, maybe you're relying on an assistant to retrieve kit, or maybe you've simply got a shiny set of primes or zooms that all look the same aside from some tiny writing.

"We've created the lens indicators based on our personal needs," says Field Made. "We wanted to upgrade our photographic experience by organizing our gear to help with finding the right lens quickly and also to give a professional and clean look to our camera bag.

"Working with other photographers and videographers we had noticed that identifying lenses with tape was a common thing (and thought it was a shame to put unaesthetic tape on expensive equipment), so we thought other people could also find these labels useful."

Field Made has created a huge line of indicators tailored to many of the leading camera bodies and lenses. So whether you're using a Canon EOS R5 (opens in new tab), Sony A7 III (opens in new tab), Fujifilm X-T3 (opens in new tab), Nikon Z50 (opens in new tab) or any number of Sigma lenses, there's a good chance that you'll find the right sticker pack for you. 

Individual stickers start at just $6.61 / £4.75 (approximately AU$8.52), with packs starting at  $20.68 / £14.86 (AU$26.67) and the company is currently running a buy four, get one free deal on indicators.
