A new innovative concept, for DSLR cameras
called the Hoodcap Flower has been designed to provide a solution for 2
problems that DLSR camera owners experience. Where to put the lens cap
once you’ve removed it from your camera, and also the problem of
fitting your camera hood every time you need to take a photo.
The Hoodcap Flower has been designed
by Rhie Hyi Joong & Lee Sang Hwa and combines both a lens cap and
lens hood into one convenient device. By simply twisting
the Hoodcap Flower either clockwise or anticlockwise the lens cap will
either open or close. Removing the problem of storing your lens cap once
removed from your camera and providing an instant lens hood.
Unfortunately the Hoodcap Flower it still currently a concept at the moment, but after just winning the 2011 Spark Awards the device may now jump from concept to production and find its way to stores. Let’s hope so.
