Another MX-1 lens cap option

In case you're looking for a push-on lens cap for your MX-1 but don't want it to say "FUJIFILM" on the front, I thought I'd share: this unadorned soft plastic cap just arrived from Amazon and looks promising, at least for my needs. It fits snugly, stays put when sliding the camera in and out of a bag, forms a solid dust seal, and shaves a few millimeters off the camera thickness (compared to the stock cap).

The brand name is "Kaiser." They make caps with a range of inside diameters between 15mm and 120mm. This is the 55mm version; the Fujifilm X100 caps some people have been using are specified at 54mm, but as I understand it those caps have a felt liner that can compress a bit. I don't think the 54mm version of this cap would be wide enough.




vendor link -- current price is $15.50 US.

Cool, I expect you'll like it. I've been out shooting a couple of times with mine and am pleased. There's no keeper on it, and I suppose one of those little adhesive pucks with a string would work, but for now I'm okay with just sticking the cap in my pocket until turning the camera off. There's nothing dangling and getting in the way when using the tilt-down screen to shoot from overhead or whatever.
