Camcorder lens cover only automatic open/close

FDR-AX33, Lens cover opens when viewfinder is opened.  While I am learning to use this camcorder, would be nice to close the lens cover, for protection.  Any way to do this?

I looked at the manual and more specifically at the Part/Controls section and did not see a lens cover.  The manual does state that the camcorder automatically turns on when you open the LCD viewfinder.  There are a couple of things you can do to protect the lens one of which is to get a lens cap that would fit over the lens (52 mm lens cap).  


A lens cap can be purchased for under $10 and you can get one that comes with a strap to attach it to the lens barrel so you don't lose it.  


I would recommend a UV filter to protect the lens against scratches when you are recording.  A UV filter can also be purchased for under $10.
