Another week, another clever way to hold your lens cap.
One of the very best things about the iPhone’s camera, aside from its portability, its speed, its quality, its connectivity and its ability to share pictures instantly. And to edit them. And its tough, sapphire crystal protective cap. And… Wait. Where was I?
Ah, yes. One of the best things about the iPhone camera is that there’s no lens cap to lose. That’s not the case for your supposedly superior SLR. Which is why you’re going to have to spend another $14 or so just to fix the problem.
I’m a fan of lens caps over built-in lens covers on my cameras, mostly because 1) they never get stuck shut and 2) I can wander with my camera around my neck ready to shoot, and I don’t have to worry about whether the cap is on or not.
However, I have also lost and broken way more caps than I’d like to admit, and the safest place – my pocket – adds lint which inevitably ends up on the lens. What to do? I might try the ReadyCap, a handy spot to keep pretty much any cap you have.
