You’ve heard this before: “The best camera is the one you have with you”. Well that is true for me! For me it’s important to my inspiration and creativity to have a camera always with me. My tool of choice is the Lumix LX7. No, this post isn’t about the LX7, it’s about the fact that unless the lens is protected the always-with-me camera will become scratched and not too useful. Add to that this: I can lose a lens cap faster than… well really really fast! What to do?
In the past when I ordered a new lens or camera I always purchased a spare lens cap. Ah, anticipation. Then I discovered the JJC Self Opening lens cap. While it would not work for my lenses that require a lens hood, for the beautiful little f1.4 Leica lens on my LX7 it’s a perfect gem! Check it out! (Oh, yeah, I bought it at Amazon.com for under $15!)
