I've recently upgraded my camera to a Panasonic DMC-FZ200 but unfortunately the FZ200 isn't perfect. A major problem is the ergonomics of the lens hood and lens cap. To avoid flare the lens hood should always be used so ideally the camera is stored with the lens hood attached in the working position. This means that the lens cap has to be fitted and removed inside the lens hood which is very fiddly and I find it hard to avoid hitting the lens with the (hard plastic) lens cap. This is my answer to this problem.
