I've only just begun to use my otherwise excellent Nikon Coolpix L820 and lost the lens cap on the third outing. Why? The flimsy piece of "string"--yes, folks, it really is a string--came unknotted from the holes because the do-hicky plastic thing to slip over the string slipped/cracked/failed. It's as if the camera designer handed off the lens attachment design to the summer intern and said: "You figure out how to attach the thing." Seriously.
Meanwhile, I was simultaneously out birdwatching with my Nikon Monarch Binoculars, the lenses of which have large enough openings to attach the lens caps to the shoulder strap without needing a magnifying glass. Uh duh! So before I spring for a replacement camera lens cap, I'm going to retrace my steps through THREE MILES of fields and trails to see if I can find the missing lens. C'mon, Nikon. I love you, but you can do better than this. Just copy what you did on the Nikon Monarch Binoculars.

This lens cap is very easy to lose, at least for me. Lost it the second time I used the camera in Idaho.
$10. is a bit on the high side for a $3. item.
But as they say, it is worth whatever some one will pay!
If you want one buy it.... if not,.. go look for the lost one.
