I broke my hotshoe cover whilst photographing a rugby match, such a tough game - lol - and needed a replacement, I thought I'd give these a go

Got them today and im impressed, infact I think they are better than the olympus original

Small thing, but thought someone else might be missing a cover.

I have one spare if anyone needs one, pm your details and I'll pop in the post

I think Olympus shares the same cover with Nikon, Canon & Pentax. I use a cut up Credit card as a cover.

I just take the originals off when I buy a camera and throw them in a drawer. I've quite a new in the drawer now so no worries about losing them :rolleyes:

Same here, but I never throw them in the same drawer/box. The cover for my OM1 from the mid 70's is probably still in a drawer/box somewhere.

I leave mine on until I lose them then I forget about them. 3 cams, 3 missing hotshoe covers. I did do the credit card thing once, but I lost that as well, so I gave up.

That would be the same as all (I think) camera manufacturers as Hotshoe size is one of the few things that ever became truly standard across multiple makes

I seem to remember a debate about hot shoe covers on here recently, & the general consensus was no one bothered with them!

Not really. Sony/ Minolta have it reversed. You put a SHOE on the flash mount. :D
