Camera Lens Cap Holder Leash Review

camera lens holder
For as long as I can remember, I have struggled with keeping up with my camera lens caps.  I am not normally clumsy, but my lens caps just seem to slip through my fingers and fall to the ground just as I am trying to capture the perfect shot.

Not only can fumbling with the camera lens cap cause me to lose the opportunity for a great picture, dropping it in dirt can get the lens cap dusty. That pretty much negates the purpose of having a lens cap.  After all, I don't wish to press dirt or dust against my camera lens.

Normally, I wear jeans and my camera vest when we go hiking. If I am taking a panoramic photo of a landscape, I simply slip my camera lens in a pocket.  However, if I spot an animal along the trail, I tend to "flip" the cover off the lens in a hurry.  Needless to say, that is how it ends up on the ground instead of in my pocket.

I've also managed to drop and lose lens caps in our vehicles. They just seem to gravitate to unknown crevices or fall into the dark abyss, otherwise known as under the seat. 

Extreme annoyance with these pesky, unruly covers sent me on a search for a leash to keep them close at hand. I demand, no more runaways!

Obviously, I am not alone in this game of "find the fallen lens cover" because I quickly located exactly what I needed.  You, too, may feel you need a remedy.  If so, I can highly recommend this easy to attach lens cap leash.

It might seem that tying a string onto the lens cap would be a simple solution.  However, my lens cap covers do not have any holes in them anywhere. Therefore, a string is not an option.

These camera lens cap leashes have one end that sticks to the lens cap cover and the other end is an elastic strap that stretches snugly around the lens itself.  This simple invention works like a charm!  Plus, the lens cap leashes are extremely inexpensive.

Stop your lens cap struggle today!  If only every annoyance was this easy to eliminate.

  1. My small digital Canon camera came with a lens cap leash so I never gave it any thought. But I can imagine how frustrating it would be to constantly have to keep from dropping the camera lens cap. Terrific to hear there is an easy and inexpensive solution. Glad you found it.

  3. These lens cap holders seem like a must-have for any camera with a lens cap that doesn’t come with a similar holder attachment. A simple and effective solution to a common problem!

  4. Oh Miss Mouse, you made me laugh because my lens caps and yours must have been twins. I have lost more than one! I like this tethering idea very much and as you said, it is very affordable. Great for stocking stuffers too when the time comes!

  5. Cynthia, that's a handy item and a terrific idea. I know I would have lost that lens cap a long time ago without it. A simple gadget like that saves a big headache.

  6. I think I need one of these lens cap holder leashes! The camera we bought last year is wonderful but it does not have a lens tether.So I have to be careful to put the lens cover back in the camera bag or I know I will lose it. As much of my photography takes place in nature reserves or gardens if I dropped it I think I would have a hard time finding it again! This product would solve that problem.Thank you so much for this review and recommendation!
