After several design versions of our product and even bringing the concept to market, we come up with a new great design pushing us forward.  We've refined what we think is the best solution to the problem,  keeping track of your lens cap!  The original version we produced attaches horizontally to the standard camera strap. This modification, turning the orientation vertical will include for the recent popularity of the larger lenses and caps that protect them. We have two products on our website now for sale. For the KICKSTARTER this is a completely different version of our product. We currently have the original Hufa clip, the S version and the KICKSTARTER project is for the V version, for verticle. This is a vertically oriented version of our clip. The original one goes sideways for your normal camera strap. The S version is thinner and designed for 1" camera straps. These are popular on sling style straps such as BlackRapid, many camera bags and backpacks. The new version is for your normal size camera strap but goes up-and-down instead of sideways as the original one did.  This design will include for excepting larger lens caps from larger lenses that have become increasingly popular recently. Gravity and the strap material itself help to stabilize the larger sizes

Our project entails the design and production of a plastic/nylon injection mold.  Then the first production run of the new Hüfa V clip. With your generous contributions this five-year work in progress can be realized. 

We love comments, both good and bad (as long as their constructive). Please send us any of your thoughts and ideas so that we can make this product, and future ideas better solutions for everyone.

Risks and challenges

In order to get the best pricing and quality for the end user, we have spent considerable time finding the best manufacturing channels. We finally decided on a partner that has been producing photography accessories for major international brands for over 10 years. Because we have lived there, speak the language and have dealt with such companies, we are sure that we have the supply chain under control.

This is not our first product therefore we understand well the potential complications of production. And the timeline that needs to be planned into a project is also well understood. This experience will give us a step up to make sure this project is successful. We have a network set up of distributors and retailers ready to go. The support from our contributors is all we need to get rolling.
