    Hi Everyone!

    I don’t know if this is something a lot of people know about or not, but I recently got given a lens cap holder and it’s great! If any of you are like me (always misplacing your lens cap! 🙂 ) then you should check it out. Basically, it goes onto your camera strap and there’s a little groove to click your lens cap into. That way it’s right there close by and you shouldn’t loose it. Anyway, just thought I’d share it with you all, in case it comes in handy. I love mine!!

    BTW, make sure you purchase one with the right sizes for your lens caps. Also, mine wasn’t bought from the above link, it’s just one I found for an example. 🙂

    Hi Caitlin! At first, I thought you were talking about the string types that hook onto your strap and let it dangle off the end of the camera. I used to have one of those—I didn’t like it, and I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re into video (I happen to be), and in all of the movies I shot with that camera, there is inevitably that “clacking” of the lens cap hitting the camera.
    But the one you posted seems like a very nice alternative! I don’t have the “loose your lens cap” problem—I always wear jeans and it always goes into a pocket—but what a great product!

    @loganlamar – Oh yes, I know the ones you mean. That would be annoying! Our old family camera used to have one like that. This one is a lot better than them!

    True! I suppose I was thinking of it from the perspective of a girl that wears skirts, often without pockets. 🙂

    Oh that is super amazing! I’d not seen one of those before! GREAT idea.

    Hello! @creative-click-photography ,I was thinking about getting one of theses. Some of the reviews said that the 55mm cap didn’t work to well on it. (One of my lenses is a 55mm) Do you have a 55mm lens? Does it work on it?
    Thanks a lot!

    Hey, @blessingscaptured!

    Good question…I don’t have one that fits a 55mm lens cap, so I’m not sure. Sorry I can’t be of any help! I do know that some of my lens caps seem to fit a bit more snuggly than others, but they all work. I guess you could always buy one and just hope for the best. 🙂

    Thanks Caitlin! I’ll look into it.
