    I know we pretty much all love these cameras !
    But did you know that a Marmite Jar lid makes a good lens cap for an X100?

    250g size is a nice fit :)

    Never heard of Marmite until I read this thread.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately I use Marmite from a squeezy bottle.
    ...and I don't use a lens cap on my X100T.

    But Marmite, Mmmm...

    Good on buttered toast, and good underneath the cheese on cheese-on-toast, before grilling.

    Make sure you clean out the Marmite first!

    You might know it as Vegamite.

    I absolutely detest Marmite. Until this post I considered it to serve no useful purpose whatsoever. Seems I need to revise my thinking. Do the threads in the cap actually catch the flangie things on the lens or is it a friction fit? Not friction from a residue of Marmite, I hope!

    The things we find out here.
    So cool.
    I will look forward for my next Marmite jar to finish so I can test.

    Oh gods, you’ve now forced me to imagine the olfactory consequences of removing the Marmite lid from its jar, which seems to be necessary to make this work. I don’t think it will be worth it even if I do need a replacement cap.

    Actually it's not bad on cheese, but then in a very thin layer ... I definitely don't want my X100T to smell like that

    Fuji cameras seem to be bit of a Marmite thing.

    I like both

    Leave the Marmite in the lid...it helps to 'stick' it in place!!

    interesting although I cannot fathom any reason I would have a Marmite lid anywhere close to my home.

    RAW vs JPG, filter vs no filter, Billingham vs Ona, and now Marmite vs no Marmite.

    Brilliant idea and I love Marmite.
    What a fantastic solution for all those who seem to think that the cheap camera look is required for street shooting.

    If it isn't on my toast or in my gravy it sure as heck wont be found on my beloved X100F!

    Have some Ausie and Kiwi friends that loved this stuff, they tried every method imaginable to get me to like it and, in fairness, and I tried each one. This is a uniquely vile substance - this is coming from an ardent fan of Haggis. :eek:

    LOL

    Marmite lids are red here. Yellow is Vegemite.

    I'll happily have either.
