Ricoh LC-1 Self Retaining Lens Cap on My Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3


dsc022371Thanks to a great guy on the DCHome forum, I finally got hold of the Ricoh self retaining cap LC-1 converted for my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. Much work was put into scrapping and sanding the cap down to fit the LX3 perfectly. According to this guy, he got the idea from one of the Japanese camera forum in which he saw other guys doing the same conversion but in a much more primitive way, that being just plainly sawing the cap down and that results in a not so tight fit connection between the lens and the cap.

Woot to the guy and no more lens cap problem for me. The cost, HK$160.00. For more details, check out his post here on the DCHome forum (Chinese).
