Hi

I like the FZ20 - great features. However, is there a way to attach the lense cap to the camera whilst you're taking pictures - eg via a strap of some sort? I didn't notice any in my quick perusal of the camera.

My concern is that if there is no strap then if i take the lense cap off i may misplace it quite easily.
Apart from this its a great camera

any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Trevor

What I have seen done (and am in the process of doing myself) is purchasing a phayee adapter and when you buy the adapter you can get either a 72mm lens cap or a 62mm lens cap both with a strap on them.

I'm sure there are other options but this is the route that I've chosen to fix that problem.

Go to a camera shop and purchase a lens cap leash. One end sticks to the cap, the other sticks to the camera. Now they are forever married in a field of photographical bliss....

You have two options:
1- Buy a 72 mm lens cap and use it with the lens hood that came with the camera, and then as sprice said buy a stretchy stringy thing from most camera shops to link the cap to the camera.
2- Get the Phayee adaptor and for $1 more you can get a really nice centre push lens cap that fits very securely to the adaptor. This is what I have done and it works very well.

Or I guess you can just connect that stringy thing to your current lens cap. I never really like the panasonic cap as it didn't offer much protection
