Blackrapid-lens-caps-90-logoEver grab the wrong lens in your bag in the heat of the moment? Yeah, join the club. Well, the folks at BlackRapid have come up with a good solution for that: the LensBling Cap System, which features easy-to-see graphics and labels giving you the focal length of the lens on the rear lens cap.

We know BlackRapid from the company's popular Camera Sling strap and its LensBling Cap System seems like another good answer to a common problem for photographers.

The caps come in a variety of focal lengths including, 24mm, 24-70mm, 50mm, 85mm, and 70-200mm for Canon users; and 24mm, 50mm, 85mm, 70-200mm and 105mm for Nikon shooters. Other focal length caps are in the works and will come out later this year, Black Rapid says.

At $8.50 per cap, the LensBling caps are not a huge investment. Sure beats using a piece of tape and a magic marker.
