Olympus LC-63A overview

  • 1Description

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.
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.
The LC-63A lens cap is compatible with Olympus XZ-1 and XZ-2 digital cameras.

    Olympus LC-63A reviews

    LC-63A Lens Cap for Olympus XZ-1 & XZ-2 Digital Cameras is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly 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 $

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective What the Olympus XZ-1 should have had built in to protect the lens, this lens cap is so simple in its concept and it works very well. Easy to install (just screw on), it opens up very smoothly and doesn't obstruct the lens barrel. Slightly protects the barrel itself even when it's extended since it opens up on all four sides. Don't need to worry about taking the lens cap off/putting it back on, or losing the thing anymore. The opening doors are very thin though and feel like any rough impact might crack or break them off. Let's hope it holds up well though. The screw part feels solid like a metal, but don't know if it is. Once screwed on, it ain't going anywhere though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biggest annoyance solved! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just put it on and forget about it! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem Solved! When I first got my XZ-1 about 5 years ago, I recall reading reviewer comments about the lens cap coming off easily. My owner experience has been similar, with the cap often popping off at inopportune times, like when the camera is in your pocket or when you accidentally turn on the camera with the lens cap still in place. The LC-63A solves these problems. It fits precisely and operates smoothly. It should have been OEM!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great add-on for a great camera! The perfect no-brainer replacement for the annoying lens cap that came with this marvelous little camera. Even though I developed the technique for holding on to the stock tethered loose lens cap, it was still an annoyance to deal with. This replacement cap is the perfect answer. No more fooling around with the easily lost stock lens cap. The LC-63A lens cap opens and closes automatically each time the camera is turned on or off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent For Oly XZ-1 & XZ-2 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 .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A neat lens cap for the XZ-1! 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!
