Thread: D300 - comes with flash cover??

  1. #1

    Default D300 - comes with flash cover??

    Hello,
    just bought a new D300, realised that it does not come with the flash cover like D80... is this normal? Do the rest of D300 owners also don't have the flash cover?

    Is it safe if I leave it alone without any cover, worried about accidently spoiling the contact points....

    Maybe they left it out for a reason. E.g. if you are doing an event and in the rush, the plastic might be in a way.

    I think the cover can reduce the chances of the hotshoe mount being dented and preventing the flash from being attached properly

    Or you can buy a $670 plus hot shoe cover. The model number is SB 900.

    if you use flash often, why would you want a hotshoe cover?
