    Lens Cap Holder Project

    Hi everyone - I just saw this and thought it might be useful for some people.

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...ens-cap-holder

    I have absolutely no connection to this project, just came up in my RSS feed of MAKE Magazine.

    All the best

    The cap holder seems like a nice idea, but the website is very cool. I ordered one just to take part. It'll make a nice gift.

    I've recently funded a couple of kickstarter projects. It is a really cool site/idea and is well executed.

    It also seems like raising the required funds is only part of it (not convinced they all "need" the funding to get going) but getting the product visibility through a big audience can springboard their sales.

    I use a different device that performs the same function, is incredibly cheap ($1.99 per lens), and has been around for years:

    So I personally wouldn't invest in a substitute that's bound to be more expensive...

    I like their idea, but it's pretty easy to knock the cap off the holder and you're unlikely to hear it hit the ground. I find my back pockets work well for this purpose. Perhaps I will start a kickstarter project for back pockets.
