    Default B+W Slim CPL lens cover loose - How do you deal with it?

    I know a lot of people have got rid of their B+W slim CPL after a while because they can't seem to keep their lens cap on.

    Anyone has a good solution to this problem other than telling me to sell it?

    After use, remove and keep away. Lens cap can then be put on.

    Yeah, I usually do that but while walking around with the CPL on the camera, I have to be very careful to ensure I do not drop the lens cap. It is a bit of a pain...

    I usually put the cap in my pockets so i dont lose it, just put the cap back after keeping the cpl.

    keep the cap and just be more careful on the filter.

    So looks like there is really no other way to improve the situation?

    I was thinking about using velcro (soft side) to line the edge of the lens cap to make lens cap fit tighter to the filter.

    alternative is get those 3rd party lens cap with string attached. something like this, lens cap will still fall off, but its still secure onto the cam at least.

    last resort will be to sell it for another brand of slim filter, iirc some brand have got normal screw thread on their slim-profile cpl.

    i will suggest to get a third party lens cap. some of them the two spring loaded extending part really do extends out quite a bit that i'm sure it'll sits on your lens tight.
