Canon SX50 HS Lens Cap/Cover Broke

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Skybuck Flying, Mar 16, 2014.

  1. Hello,

    Today it was high time to clean my appartment, I was cleaning the
    top/ceiling luxa flex thingies and bam... the tripod falls over and hits the
    ground.

    The camera hit the ground straight against the lens. Fortunately the lens
    cap/cover was on it as always to prevent dust/scratches/spit etc.

    Unfortunately the Canon SX50 HS Lens Cap/Cover seems to be very
    weak/fragile.

    It broke on the first fall/hit... it was a high fall/hard hit... but still.

    I decided to immediatly film it because this is a bit of a problem. The lens
    is now in danger of getting scratch or dirty, so getting a replacement seems
    a smart thing to do.

    Here is the video showing how it broke/fractured. (Every time I clean my
    house/computer something breaks ! :( ):



    So carefull with your cameras... canon'owners...

    You've been now warned hopefully... this thing/lens cover is thin and
    fragile !

    Later when I have slept I shall sent an e-mail to the supplier or perhaps
    first I will look around to see if these things are sold seperately !

    Anybody else have any experience with replacing lens covers ?! Anybody else
    had one break/fail on them ?!

    Holyshit.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  3. Yep, just put a UV filter on it to protect it.

    Not too long ago I dropped a 50mm lens in a stream while changing it.
    It now a nice manual focus lens, with a red stripe;)

    Cheers

    I dropped a small Nikon L20 into a stream, down on some rocks. It was fine.
