Nice idea in theory only
on August 4, 2013
Sounded like a neat item. I made the purchase in a sort of a "Why didn't I think of that" moment. Reality is, slipping the lens cap into the stretchy, elastic pocket on my new Lowepro TopLoader Pro case is much faster and easier. I blame myself for the bad purchase. I know better. I hate the finicky seating of caps on lenses. This only doubles the irritation. The strap attachment "arms" make for a cumbersome hunk of plastic waiting to scratch skin or equipment.
Product idea/improvement for the maker: a rigid disc, the diameter of the lens cap, with a high tension clip on the back (to attach to camera or bag strap, eliminating the rigid "arms"). On top of the disc: Soft, stretchy material is open at the end creating a pocket to slip the cap into. Far less fine motor skills needed to operate. Much less real estate occupied. No exposed hard plastic.
