How to make a lens cap on the cheap (and quick)

People who work with historical lenses know that problem. You get a new Petzval lens for your wet plate camera, but the lens cap is missing.  To show you how easy it is to make a lens cap by yourself, Markus Hofstaetter did a video for you guys.

Of course you can get more creative and put a sticky felt underneath the cardboard or use a second cardboard as spacer underneath the first one to get a more lose fit.

Enjoy building your lens caps!!
