XZ-1 Detachable Lens Cap Mod

The dangling lens cap is sometimes annoying (especially if I know I'll be taking shots for a while and so I've been looking for some kind of clip to (quickly and easily) remove it when I wanted to while still being able to tether it to the camera so that it wouldn't get lost. I came across these clips last week and ordered some and I really like the results.

I didn't see that they came in packs of 5, and so I now have 24 extra clips. I'd offer to give them out for free, but I'll probably never get around to mailing them (sorry). The clips are 2 bucks for 5 and 9 bucks for shipping (blah) if anyone is interested.

There's also the JJC auto-lens cap option too, but this route appealed to me equally since it gives me quicker access to adding the lensmate adapter (or TCON) when I know I'll be using that off and on.

Here's it attached to my camera. Let me know what you think.
