Just returned from a walk, and guess what - no external flash connector cover - despite not using the external flash.
Have e-mailed Olympus, but why why why could they not have used a cover that stays attached to the body as per the USB and DC in covers.
Really annoying.

If you mean the one that goes on the flash shoe, I quickly lost the one on my E500. When I queried Oly U.K. about a spare, they said that they are not available because it has 'no useful function' AIRC!

If you really want one try Luton Cameras. 4.99 and 2.50 postage.

Thanks. May try Luton Cameras but the one I want is the threaded cover on the front that covers the socket for a sync lead.

Until you get the proper one, maybe one of the rubber covers that go on the smaller terminal of some PP9 batteries might fit.
