LensPacks-Innovative Lens Caps for Quick Camera Lens Changes

CA$ 34,077

Lens changes. We love to have the right lens but hate the hassle of changing to the right one. Your options were to have two cameras or fumble with rear lens caps while your perfect moment passes you by.

Meet LensPacks, the best accessory for your camera bag. By eliminating the hassle of changing rear lens caps, our patent-pending LensPacks allows you to perform incredibly fast lens changes. Its universal design is compatible with literally any camera bag so that your lenses are ready to be changed at any moment - instantly.

  • Reduce lens change time by up to 60% and never miss a moment by eliminating the inconvenience of slow, clumsy lens changes 
  • Compact and universal design that would fit into virtually any camera bag, in any orientation you want

LensPacks is very easy to use. It's designed with user-friendliness in mind.

1.) Use the Velcro fastener to attach LensPacks at a desired location inside the camera bag.

2.) Insert the lens into LensPacks and turn the lens to secure.

  *For bags that do not have attachment points for Velcro fasteners, add the Velcro sheet as shown in the "Reward Add-On" section below.

Whether you are a professional photographer that works in a studio or a casual photographer that enjoys taking outdoor photos, LensPacks caters to everyone with more than one camera lens. It is designed for owners of Nikon F-Mount, Canon EF, Sony E Mount, and Micro 4/3s interchangeable lens systems. Compatibility for more lens systems are slated for future release. 

UPDATE: LensPacks will also support Fujifilm X-Mount and Pentax K-Mount interchangeable lens systems!

At the early stage of LensPacks development, we tested with just adding Velcro to a regular rear lens cap. We quickly found this solution would not hold up to repeated use. We then developed a version with a larger base with threads for redundancy. The final version of LensPacks uses metal fasteners in place of threads, and includes features such as indication markers and chamfer for easy lens insertion.  

Design 
LensPacks was designed in the beautiful British Columbia of Canada by a group of mechanical engineers.

Manufacturing 
The components of LensPacks are manufactured in a factory which specializes in plastic injection molding.   

Assembly and Packaging
All LensPacks are built by hand in Canada to meet our uncompromising standard. We will then package and ship all rewards to you from British Columbia, Canada or via our fulfillment center.

The following rewards are available for you to choose from! Our Amateur, Novice, and Pro packages come with LensRacks Kits. You can find out more information of our LensRacks kits by visiting:

We will send out a survey at the end of the Kickstarter campaign to collect any information we need to deliver your rewards.

Since most of the backers on our last project were from the US, the prices below are listed in US dollars. As our Kickstarter campaign is from Canada, our rewards shown on the right sidebar are listed in the Canadian dollar equivalent. Your pledge will be in CAD, but converts approximately as:

$40 USD = ~$50 CAD or ~€38 EURO

We understand that there are a few bags that do not have Velcro-friendly lining. For these bags, we offer adhesive Velcro sheets as an add-on option. Simply add the following amount to your pledge. We will send out a survey at the end of the Kickstarter campaign to collect any information we need to deliver your rewards.

LensPacks was designed by the engineering team from Ansix Designs.

Risks and challenges

We partnered with different companies for the components of the LensPacks system. The main risk would be delays in the delivery of manufactured components to our team for assembly and packaging. However, we've given ourselves a sufficient buffer to prevent delays from our promised delivery date.
