Luton Cameras.
One is the flash sync, the other is ... (I can't remember & the camera is not to hand)
They are different!! Beware.

Re: round rubber cap

There is only one connector on the front of the E3 - the flash sync located upper right. Luton provide excellent service although you may think their standard P&P price a little excessive for small items. Why not buy 2 caps and also a cap for the remote socket to reduce the item cost but the best tip is to post a SA Jiffy Bag with your payment rather than debit over phone/tinternet.

Cheers

Mick

Re: round rubber cap

Thanks for the replys, the last thing i want is moisture getting in when i am out in the snow, when you pul your camera in and out of your bag they can drop off.

Re: round rubber cap

I got a small rubber cap from off a 9v battery, the type they use in some alarm clocks as back-up and in house-hold fire/smoke alarms. It has a tiny hole through which I tied it to the strap via some nylon fish-line/thread and it worked a treat during my recent trip to Noway. Pushes over the threaded mount just under where the strap fits and provides a tight fit. Snow, sleet and driving rain were all shrugged off.

Hi monoboard I may be being a bit pedantic here but the genuine caps are hard plastic and shouldn't drop off. They are threaded and actually screw onto the socket they are covering. Just make sure they are finger tight and you should never lose one just by lifting the camera in and out of your bag.
The only thing I ever knock off is the blooming hot shoe cover.
I got my caps and cover from Luton Cameras too.

The top link is the remote control cap and the bottom one for the flash sync cap. They even have a little logo to identify which cap goes where.
Cheers.
