X-Cap Automatic Lens Cover for DSLRs – Video

The X-Cap is a lens cap for DSLR and other similar cameras that replaces the manual lens cover with one that is more commonly found on a point and shoot camera. The lens cap fits on the end of the lens and has automatic covers that close up when you switch the camera off.

As seen in the video above, the lens cap simply attaches to your lens and closes up when you finish taking your pictures. At the moment it appears to attach to GF3 and GX1 cameras with the Panasonic X 14-42mm. Perhaps it will attach to more although the auto translation isn’t the clearest. Either way, it’s a nice idea that might take off.
