The LC-63A Lens Cap for Olympus XZ-1 & XZ-2 Digital Cameras from Olympus is a spare or replacement lens cap specifically designed to fit the Olympus XZ-1 and XZ-2 digital cameras. The LC-63A is an automatic opening lens cap that opens when the camera is turned on and closes itself when the camera is turned off. The lens cap is screw-mounted to the lens' filter thread and will stay on securely and open itself immediately when activated. Truly convenient, almost impossible to lose and likely to keep your lens in better shape. This is a wonderful accessory to the Olympus XZ-1 and XZ-2.

Automatic Opening Mechanism
The LC-63A Lens Cap opens and closes automatically with the push of the cameras' ON/OFF button. The lens cap's four shutters open smoothly as the camera's lens extends forward and close precisely as the lens retracts when turned off.
Mount
The cap screw-mounts to the lens' filter thread and stays on the camera all the time. The screw mount keeps the cap tight and secure throughout multiple openings and closings.
Compatibility
The LC-63A lens cap is compatible with Olympus XZ-1 and XZ-2 digital cameras.

      LC-63A Cap Works Great On Olympus XZ-2

          Comments about LC-63A Lens Cap for Olympus XZ-1 & XZ-2 Digital Cameras:

          The Olympus XZ-1 and XZ-2 seem too small for cameras that need a lens cap and I was kind of bummed about having to mess with one for my XZ-2, even on a leash, but then discovered the LC-63A auto-opening lens cap. In a word, it works great and since the XZ-1 and XZ-2 have the same lens, it works on both Olympus models.

          PROS:

          - This cap installs easily just by threading it on to the threads on the inside of the lens opening.

          - It automatically opens when the camera is powered on and automatically closes when it is powered off. The lens extends out beyond the edges of the cover, so it does not get in the way.

          - It seems like it would be much more durable than the integrated sliding lens cover on a typical point and shoot (I've got an old but outstanding Pentax Optio 555 that was comparable to my XZ-2 in price, features and quality except megapixels and it's trash because the sliding lens cover that keeps jamming half open).

          - It's thin, maybe only 2mm thicker than the regular lens cap that came with my XZ-2, which helps given that the XZ-2, with it's articulating screen, is already a bit too chunky. This is actually about 1/2" thinner than the cheaper Chinese-made equivalent one sees on the biggest online retailer and on the big auction site, making easily worth the extra double or triple that it costs in comparison with the cheapo model.

          - Price, at under twenty bucks, is reasonable.

          CONS:

          - Even adding only 2mm still makes my XZ-2 a bit thicker and it's chunkier than I'd like for easy carrying in a pocket (really just a function of the camera and its thicker articulating screen, though).

          - The LC-63A might be discontinued, as sources for it seem to have shrunk even in the month or so since I first found out about it until I ordered it from B&H.

          CONCLUSION:

          If you've got an Olympus XZ-1 or XZ-2, this is a must-have accessory - buy it.

                  Was very pleased to discover this lenscap was available. I neck-carry my XZ-1 and take shots periodically during walkabouts . That loose fitting and string-dangling original cap almost had me retiring this super little camera to being a paperweight . But now with this threaded screw-in self contained no fuss new cap , the XZ-1 has happily become my go everywhere photo-shooter once more . Just buy this cap .

                    I did not know about this lens cover before I discovered it on the B&H website. I read all the customer reviews and concur about its excellent performance. It sure beats having a lens cover hanging on the lens and accidentally becoming part of the picture. And as usual, B&H's processing of my order was excellent….a very reliable company.

                    Works great. Was easy to screw on to the lens. Does not provide a dust-free seal, but does provide scratch protection against drops and some weather protection.

                      I think it should have been included with the camera purchase. It is much better than the "take on, take off" lens cap.

                      This screws onto the lens, then opens when you turn the camera on, and closes when you turn the camera off. Perfect. Well worth the extra dollars.

                        I am very happy with this product. It has worked flawlessly so far. I had the cap that came with the camera attached to the supplied cord, but it was quite annoying having it dangling underneath the camera when taking pictures.

                          Ever since the wheel, there have been many notable inventions in our time. Some of which have changed the course of humanity for the better.

                          This lens cap is not one of them. But it sure is convenient.

                          Just screw it on and never think about it again. Works the same way in protecting the front lens like the ones found in smaller, pocketable cameras. Never carry or worry about losing the stock lens cap provided.

                          Turn the camera on, the lens pushes through the opening. Turn the camera off and the cap closes behind the retracting lens. Easy.

                                  Works great on my XZ-2! This should be included with the purchase of the camera. Doesn't seal like a regular lens caps, so it may not be ideal in dusty situations.

                                      This is the lens cap that Olympus should have provided in the first place. Just screw it in and leave it in place. It opens and closes automatically when you turn the camera on and off. There's nothing to lose or get in the way.

                                        It works so well that I don't understand why does it not come with the camera as a standard lens cover. It gives the protection of the lens when the camera is not being used and when I am taking pictures I don't have the lens cover dinging around the camera. I just think that I had to buy it much earlier.
                                        I would recommend this lens cover to a friend .

                                            This works great on the XZ-2. Probably should have been included with the camera itself. it doesn't add much size to the lens, and is only slightly larger than the normal pop-off lens cap.

                                              This works perfectly. The metal outer ring screws on to the threads around the base of the lens, and the lens pushes the plastic flaps out of the way when the camera turns on. It may still allow some dust through the cracks, but it keeps the large outer lens element from getting scratched or smudged with fingerprints. It operates silently, and doesn't look silly or keep the camera from being pocketable. Best of all, there is no lens cap on a string dangling in front of the lens/flash/AF illuminator while you are trying to compose a photo in portrait orientation!Yes, it should have been included with the camera originally, but the convenience makes it well worth the extra $

                                                  I've owned xz-1 for couple of years now, and the biggest physical annnoyance about this camera is its lens cap. It's attached by a string and tends to extend and dongle in annoying way. I considered 3rd party cap until I found this one. It's attached by using existing extention lens theread. Once attached it extends maybe 1mm deeper than factory lens cap, still allowing good fit with any factory or aftermarket camera case. Fit is secure and plastic flaps don't scratch lens. I would love it to retain Olympus logo on the cap, but this cap does what it's designed for.

                                                        Very tiny bit thicker than the actual lens cap. Much better than aftermarket ones. Aftter market version is extemely thich and unusable in a case. I would definitely recommend.

                                                          One annoyance with the XZ-1 is the original lens cap, which is easy to inadvertently knock off the lens. The LC-63A lens cap is a great update, it stays on the camera at all times and closes smartly when the lens is retracted. The only downside is that if you use the telephoto lens adapter, then this cap is harder to remove than the original. But for normal usage, it's a winner!

                                                                Quality metal and plastic construction. Screw it into place via the hidden threads that surround the lens and forget it. The camera does the rest---self opening and self closing. It makes the ZX-1 and ZX-2 an even better piece of gear. A Bargain at twice the price.
