An Alternative Lens Cap for Lomo Fisheye Cameras

Is the loose Fisheye rubber lens cap hitting one of your nerves? Do you almost always see it removed from your Fisheye? Don't fret, read on!

Everytime I put my Fisheye No. 2 in my bag, I almost always see its rubber lens cap away from the lens.

One odd day, I noticed that the Fisheye lens has room for a lens cap, and I started wondering whether a lens cap would indeed fit the Fisheye lens.

One normal day, I decided to check out our local supplier of random things: CD-R King, and check out if any of their lens cap would fit the Fisheye’s lens…and one DID!


-A Lomo Fisheye
-A 49mm lens cap

Squeeze the retractable sides of the lens cap and put it on the Fisheye lens. TADA!

The lens cap that I got fits perfectly! Just remember to remove it before shooting!

Lomo on!
