Any photographer worth his stop bath will tell you that a proper lens hood is one of the most important tools of the trade. The problem is that lenses still require a lens cap to stay scratch and smudge free when traveling. The Hoocap ($49) lens cap is the clever solution photogs have been waiting for that transforms from cap to hood in one easy flick. Unfortunately, it’s currently only available for the Canon EF-S 17-55mm lens, but more sizes for Leica, Nikon and Sony glass will be available soon so don’t despair. Half a benjamin isn’t exactly cheap — but neither are those lenses you’re interested in protecting.
