Have you ever lost your lens cap? My personal count is 3 (and counting)…but perhaps I’ll never have to worry about this ever again.
Say hello to what could possibly be one of the most useful accessories of all time: the Camera Lens Cap Holder.
Invented by Mark Stevenson, the lens cap holder attaches to the strap of your camera or bag (as seen in the photo above). It locks on using the same mechanism of fastening the cap to the lens itself, via a “circular recess” and “friction fit”.
According to the inventor, there will be ten sizes available:
52mm, 55mm, 72mm & 77mm for Nikon, Pentax, Fujifilm, Sony, Pro-series and vintage lenses
46mm, 58mm & 67mm for M4/3, Cannon and Nikon lenses
40.5mm, 49mm & 62mm for M4/3, Olympus and vintage lenses
Each cap holder can hold three or four different lens cap sizes. One side holds two sizes, the opposite side holds up to two other sizes. When threaded onto a neck strap, only one size may be used at a time.
Since his patent is still currently pending, Stevenson is asking for donations to his project (although his target has already been reached).
