      Cap Keeper OR Cap Keeper Plus???

      I've been buying these for forty years. I was surprised to find 2 grades of Sensei Cap Keepers listed at B&H. I went for broke and ordered both. Cap Keeper Plus uses a heavier grade of elastic, a heavier cable, and it has a neat, plastic connector where cable and elastic join. The plebian grade joins eleastic to cablewith a metal staple, just as secure, no rough edges, but a bit "raw." Also, the Plus version has a smaller "S" on the button that affixes it to the lens cap.

      As to effectiveness, in 40 years I've never had one that stayed stuck with the supplied adhesive. After the first lost lens cap, good epoxy holds it tight.

      CONCLUSION: Plus costs $1 more. I don't think it works any better, but if you're fussy about such stuff, perhaps it's worth the $1. For me, having satisfied my curiosity, I'll save future bucks.

      I bought this after seeing another photographer with one on her lens cap. As I am always stuffing my lens cap in my pocket, then searching my pockets to find it later I thought this would be a great idea.

      It did exactly what it says it does, but I found myself replacing the lens cap between shots because when I moved around the lens cap would dangle and click against the camera. (FYI, I wasn't using a regular neck strap on my camera but was using a Black Rapid RS-W1 across the body strap). I missed some shots because by the time I removed the lens caps and focused the shot was gone. I think I'll just keep putting my lens cap in my pocket. Good idea for a product though.

          The cap keeper works great when you need to take off the lens cap quickly and don't have to worry about whether you put it in your pocket or your bag, etc.

            It's incredibly cheap! And it works so far. I had to wrap the elastic twice around my camera lens and the adhesive on the bit that sticks to the lens cap is not going to last forever, but it's incredibly cheap and an excellent quick fix solution. It's just a pity the lens cap on this Lumix model is not already threaded to the lens, like previous models. But that's a different story.

            Lost a lens cap with this lens cap holder. In challenging weather conditions, extreme cold, hot or high humidity...careful with your caps, you may lose as the adhesive is useless in these conditions.

                I kept misplacing the lens cap and was at a loss for what to do except to buy extras for my camera bag. But, this product I saw in the catalog is perfect! The elastic band fits around the camera lens and the cap hangs down out of the way until I am done! Great bargain too!

                    The best feature of this holder is that if your lens cap gets knocked off, it stays with the lens. The adhesive isn't very strong so I epoxy the holder to the lens cap.

                                  It works, but the lens strap is like a ribbon shape (flat). For my lenses i think it would be better if it was shaped like a rope (round) instead of a ribbon.

                                        I call a cap keeper a "Lens Leash" because it keeps the lens cap within a close, safe distance. With the leash, neither the lens cap or I can get lost or leave the other behind.

                                            I love this because the band is elastic and will go around just about every lens. I only worry about the elastic getting loose over time.
                                            I am glad I got this because I lose lens caps.

                                                      I got tired of misplacing my lens cap. This works.

                                                            Sturdy. Should do the job to keep me from misplacing my lens cover.

                                                                  An unattached lens cap should NOT be made, especially for a water proof camera as one is only going to use it when participating in activities. I have already lost 2 lens caps so finding this inexpensive and easily solution was fabulous. Thank you B & H for carrying this device.
