    Put on a couple of layers of scotch tape and a final gaffer tape so that rain drops will not seep thru and kill your D300s...

    this is quite an expensive piece of plastic that can be bought at many retailers.

    i don't think a little water on the hotshoe can cause the whole camera to be dead. the hotshoe cover does not render the hotshoe contacts water-resistant anyway. where did u get that info from?

    I bought 2 pieces of Nikon's BS-1 accessory shoe cover for both my 5D and LX3 some time back. Got it from CP Peninsula Plaza at $4 each.

    Alternatively, u can get it at Lord's Camera at Lucky Plaza at $3 each but they're always out-of-stock. Therefore i paid $1 more and get it faster at CP.

    LOL, for a moment I thought you dropped your camera and broke your hot shoe..It's just the d...ed plastic hot shoe cover. There are a plenty of OEM available (Some with even a nice spirit level) and the original BS-1 aint one expensive stuff either.

    If this were true, there would have been millions of dead cameras and electrocuted photographers by now. Seriously.

    It would then perfectly make sense for someone to say, my flash "fired"

    They do bring in some stocks after a while but as soon as they're in, also sold out very fast.

    Forget it...

    there is NO need for one in the first place. My camera has been with me for the past 4 years in drizzles, rain and NOT once has the hotshoe given me any trouble.

    Well, canon doesn't have 1, and once I left it outside in the rain for 1 minute. I was trying to take out something from my bag in the open and thus I placed my camera on the floor outside under the rain and wad happened? I got electrocuted and died with my camera.

    this

    image from www.hardwarezone.com

    is what a hotshoe looks like...
    How do you lose that?

    Anyway, the hotshoe cover is quite easy to get, but not worth it in my opinion.
    I tossed mine in my dry cabinet. Otherwise everytime I want to mount my ext flash I gotta remove and store this piece of plastic...
    The Nikon one fits Canon too...
