Overview : Camera owners sometimes lose their lens caps or don't have the pocket to store their lens cap. Hufa solves this problem by keeping the lens cap close to the SLR Camera Lens and user at all times.

The Hufa Holder is the perfect camera accessory for all of you SLR Camera needs. It fits all kinds of SLR lens cap including Nikon Lens, Canon Lens, Sigma Lens and Tamron Lens caps.

Gone are the days of forgetting your lens cap at the beach, on a park bench, at the birthday party or the big game. Keep your lens cap free of dust, sand, dirt, and water by securing it safely out of harm's way. Keeps your lens cap out of your dog's mouth, out from under car tires, and out of the sand box.

Features :
  • Holds different sized lens cap
  • Keep your lens cap clean and safe
  • Fits all types of SLR neck straps
  • Fits most camera bags and lens bags
  • Made of durable plastic
  • Never lose a lens cap again!

Guess I'm sub-average. I haven't lost a lens cap in many years. This clip won't keep you from knocking the cap off the strap it's clipped to, thus losing not only the cap but the clip that was supposed to prevent its loss. A far better solution (especially with large diameter (77 mm on up) caps) is to put the cap in the same pocket, or same place in your bag, when you remove it.

I haven't lost any either (knock on wood). I never had a problem with knocking the cap off with the Hufa even if I put mine on a BlackRapid. On the BlackRapid, the strap is thin. On a normal strap like on a bag, its fine. Ill take a pick and update the review

In 48 years of shooting I have not lost a single lens cap. Where did your statistics come from about lost lens caps?

Also, I am unclear if this is a review or a for sale ad.

Ditto...40 years and no lost lens caps...pockets work just fine. Sounds like the OP is pushing folks towards an advertisement on his/her blog. Sad thing is that someone will more than likely buy this thing. The old proverb "A fool and his money are soon parted" never seems to lose its relevance. :D

Never lost a front lens cap. Nowadays I don't even use front lens caps.

A solution looking for a problem? I've been shooting on and off for over 40 years and never lost a cap. It's in my pocket, or more likely, in my bag. When I have a lens mounted, the cap is off, and doesn't go back on until I swap lenses.

Overview is from the manufacturer themselves. This doesn't have to be geared towards those who lost. It can be for those who don't have pockets, have tight pockets or even for those female photographers who wear dresses and don't have any pockets.

This is a review. Read it for yourself. All my reviews have a link to online store for those who are interested in purchasing.

I also review video game related stuff and I always get questions of "where can I purchase this?" or "how much is this?", so with all my reviews, I include links and prices.

Everyone has their own method of carrying their lens and not everyone is so lucky.

No one is twisting your arm to buy. Not everyone knows about certain products and I don't mind helping spreading the word.

Aren't you afraid of damaging your lens? I shiver at the thought of an unprotected lens.

Same, using hoods on lenses the Canon lens caps become a bit annoying. So I just leave the caps at home. :)

That's what hoods and UV filters are for, for the current day cameras. Even if my camera is in the bag, I don't want to fumble with a lens cap as I take the camera out for that shot appearing right in front of me :) no disrespect to your review of course. Just a matter of personal preference which I'm sure many people on the boards also have.

I have a hufa holder. When I used to shoot film I would use one of the film holders to slide my lens cap into, so I was used to having a place for my lens cap on my camera strap. It was disappointing to realize when I got my DSLR that the convenient little elastic parts were missing.

It is hard to get the clip onto your strap - it actually connects off to one side instead of just sliding on, so there's a bit of plastic over both ends to keep you from knocking it off easily. The Canon lenses I have have lens caps that are "hollow" on the back side so the clip keeps them very well. HOWEVER, the Sigma lens my hubby has doesn't have that kind of indentation on its lens cap so it doesn't seem as secure in the holder.

So far I've had no complaints, except that the two months I shot without one I developed the habit of throwing it into a pants pocket, jacket pocket, or leaving it in the catch in my truck... :-P

I use hoods and UV filters but I still use the lens cap. Maybe its my mentality. I know the UV filter is meant to protect the lens but the UV filter can scratch easier. I guess I like protection over protection. LOL

I agree about not wanting to fumble with a lens cap but I guess it all depends on what you do.

I also agree with the personal preference. I'm sure the product to some is useless but like you said, its personal preference. I never knew about this product until someone mentioned it on a forum and thought I would purchase it. I ended up buying 3 to try it out and to me, I like it. Gave the remaining two to family members.

I've contacted the company and they're supplying a couple to give away.

I have a Sigma lens from my 24-70 (82mm!!!) and I don't have a problem with it being secure despite the lens cap being enormous
