Hot Shoe Cover....

Probably something that's been asked before...just lost the plastic hot shoe cover from the flash socket on the top of my e600 !! Annoying but they are not foolproof.. best place to get a replacement (fleabay as usual or elsewhere)??

Cheers

Peter

My last replacement was DiYed, cut from a bit of half octogon black plastic gutter. I no longer bother

Re: Hot Shoe Cover....

I always check out people hotshoes and am surprised how many are lost. But I have also lost them - so I bought 7 from HK for about $8 delivered to Oz. I have 3 camera which need them but still have 3 in my bag for next lost one.

Or they simply take them off and store them. I've probably got 6 or more somewhere.
