Flip lens cap….I’m embarrassed to even ask.
When I was 18 I bought my first SLR the Yashica Penta J (1962+). I was taught that when you buy the camera you face down the camera and put a UV filter on the lens “in the store” so the lens will always be “factory-fresh.” So today the very thought of removing the filter to shoot feels like it’s an abomination.
Regretfully, I am not very gentle with my cameras. So I thought if I breathe in heavy, close my eyes and remove the skylight filter I should is at least have a lens cap in place. Reality is I will either forget to use the lens cap or more likely loss it.
So the idea of using a flip lens cap came in mind. It seems awkward, but maybe it’s a way to go.
Has anyone used a flip lens cap or have any thoughts.
I’m so embarrassed.
Ben
