Design

SIMPLE APPEARANCE

Minimal change to camera’s appearance and functionality. Barely noticeable.

SHUTTER OVERLAP FOR SUPERIOR DUST PROTECTION

Lens cap shutters overlap for to prevent dust from settling on the front of the lens.

STANDARD 37mm FILTER INTERFACE

Just squeeze the buttons and install it on the filter thread on the front of your lens.

FLUSH FITTING BUTTONS

After mounting the cap on the lens, the buttons remain flush with the outside of the device, improving the appearance of the device and minimizing the risk of snagging and losing the cap.

PRODUCT COLOR

Current choices are white & silver, black & iron-gray.

Manual

First, turn the camera on and extend the lens (most important! – without this step it is impossible to install the X-Cap without damage).

Use your fingers to depress the spring-loaded buttons on either side of the X-Cap, causing the two ribbed fingers to be retracted, then insert them into the 37mm threaded section on the front of the lens (where a filter would be installed). Note, it is normal for significant pressure to have to be applied to the two buttons to fully retract the fingers.

Gently release the two buttons, ensuring the fingers are equally (symmetrically) positioned in the lens’ filter threads. When the buttons are totally released, the X-Cap should be flush with the front of the lens, firmly in place. View lens from side to ensure this is so.

When the X-Cap is correctly located you should rotate it gently until the opening is horizontally oriented (landscape) with the logo on the top at the 12 o’clock position. If you don’t orient the cap correctly you may experience dark corners on your photographs, or the lens cap’s shutter may not function correctly.

Do not attempt to open the lens cap shutter when the lens is retracted (camera is off). If you force the lens cap shutter open you may damage the X-Cap’s mechanism.

FAQ

  • My camera is pink. Beside white and black, are there any other colors for X-CAP?

    X-CAP is only available in white and black. Currently Freemod has no plans to produce X-CAP in any other color. In the event that the Panasonic LUMIX GX VARIO PZ 14-42mm lens (hereinafter referred to as the X14-42) is made available in additional colors in the future, we will consider producing X-CAP in matching colors.

  • If the lens has a UV filter installed, can I still use the lens cap?

    X-CAP is compatible with the standard 37mm filter thread. X-CAP can be installed onto any 37mm filter thread, however, X-CAP is a dedicated lens cap specifically designed for a bare X14-42 lens and Freemod can only guarantee that the X-CAP properly operates on such a lens.

  • In addition to the X14-42, can I install X-CAP on my other lens?

    Freemod is unable to test X-CAP on all the 37mm lenses on the market today (or in the future). Neither Freemod nor the lens manufacturer can provide any assurance of compatibility. The responsibility lays totally with the purchaser. Under no circumstances will Freemod’s guarantees extend to any attempt to use X-CAP on any lens other than the X14-42.
