Lens cap covers are a necessary evil. They protect my DSLR camera’s lens when I’m not using the camera, but they are so easy to lose. I’ve resorted to buying those keepers that you glue on to the cap and attach to the camera strap with an elastic band. You don’t lose the lens cap – if the glue holds – but the cap is flopping around while you use the camera. And when you have multiple lenses, you have to change the lens cap keeper as you change the lens. Enter Mark Stevenson, who invented a patent-pending Camera Lens Cap Holder that slides over your camera strap and holds multiple sizes of lens caps for a given camera type. You just snap them on the holder and they’re held by friction – just as they are when they’re on your lens. Mark’s Kickstarter project was funded at 375% percent of the request. Hopefully these will be available for purchase soon.
