External Flash connector cover
 
Just realised I have lost the above.

An internet search shows that Luton Cameras sell a replacement for 3.50 + 3.00 postage, both seem to be a bit excessive to me.

HAs anyone seen another source??

TIA*chr

Check eBay. Generic is fine, as the hot shoe is a standard size.

I thought the cover was designed to be lost or put away in a box waiting until the camera is to be sold on.

There are too many plastic things that may look pleasing but are a liability.

Along with the branded lens cap, strap, mains cable for the charger, USB cable, etc.

Bit the bullet and bought a new one from Watford cameras 6.30

At least it had the correct motif on it and it screwed in nice and tight.

Must get a bit of Loctite on it *chr

Its the little round job on the front of the camera, presumably for a flash in that does work via the hot shoe. (Not the hot shoe fitting)

But thanks anyway...*chr

What you're after is a pc (Pro Compur) cover. They are standard, and generally cheap as chips.
