    Lords changed name to iPhoto, still along the same stretch of shops at Lucky Plaza.

    Back to the topic, as stated, u can get the hot-shoe cover at Cathay Photo for $4 each, gotten a few of them myself from there too.

    Well, the way some amateurs protect their gears is beyond comprehension. It is as if their gear is so darn fragile like "taohoo" or brittle glass.

    In the other extreme, some pros, especially those on company account, would abuse and batter their gear so much so that it looks like having gone thru 2 warzones after just merely 6months of use.

    but most of us are just somewhere in-between.

    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...

    sorry, its the cover..not hotshoe...

    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?

    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.
    Got it from CP at $4.
    Oh heard from someone..maybe he meant to be a joke and i took it seriously till i lost mine.. ha
