You mean to say that wasn't a very small coaster that came with my lens?

In all seriousness, lens caps are the way to go. I bought a few lens cap leashes as well, and they are extremely useful. It's one of those things you never really care about until you actually have them. No lost caps for me!

I'm fairly fastidious about keeping my cap on when not shooting. However, I can see how this isn't a viable option for some types of shooting (sports, etc.). If I ever go shooting in a dust storm, then I will definitely use a UV filter.

I think if a dust storm ever hits surburbia Fremont, CA, I'd probably be more concerned over whether it's the end of the world rather than taking pictures

The only time I ever came across a situation where lens caps weren't a good option would be whenever I visit the city (i.e., SF), as sometimes the moment would be gone when I try to take off my lens cap.

On a side note, I wish Canon would change their lens cap designs to ones like Nikon's. I really love how the pinch tabs aren't exposed at all.

Yes, it would be nice, but so far I haven't had a cap come off accidentally.

I'd love to join! My camera is a Kodak EasyShare Z950 point-and-shoot. It's nothing great, but I got it as my first camera to see if I really liked photography as much as I thought I would. And I did. I love this thing, plenty of features and great lens (10x optical zoom) all for $100 w/ a 4GB SDHC. Really wanting to upgrade to a DSLR but that's gonna be out of my price range for a while :x

You could always grab a third party cap. The bower lens caps are very similar to the Nikon ones. I bought one for my 200mm f/4 and it's pretty nice. Snaps on tight.

Solution


In all seriousness, I'll check those lens caps out. For whatever reason my 50mm's cap tends to come off accidentally. Doesn't happen to any of my other lenses.

So with the GoPro Hero I think I'm going to shoot 960p and crop down to 720p. (4:3 --> 16:9)
