Default Lense cap option

I found an option to standard lense caps.
It's a rifle scope cover, made by Butler Creek. These caps flip open, with the touch of a finger. They come in a variety of
sizes and can be found almost anywhere,
with a price tag under 10$.

sjms,
I found that when searching "flip sunglasses"

http://www.maurone.com/shop/product....id=10&sku=1102

Quote:
Flip-Up Sunglasses
$6.00 per Dozen (Product Number: 1102)
gosh ... it's real cheap (that's certainly not Serengeti polarized )

This pair ( lens cover and sunglasses) will make nice Xmast present for your digicam friends ??

Brooks, the covers can be found at most
discount stores, i.e wal-mart, target. This
is a size range list. Also check out their website. Two models to choose from.
