Great for its intended use but that is not why I bought it.
Instead of an eyepiece shield, which is unwieldy, I fastened a small piece of black felt to the cover. Now I have an eyepiece shield that I can flip out of the way to use the eyepiece or flip down to cover the eyepiece. I use the cover generally and for photographing youth sports outdoors. The camera is on a tripod and can only pan. Sighting along the lens is more than adequate and I have the benefit of a stereoscopic view of the action - makes it easier to anticipate peaks in the action.

Someone at a different website said that this hot shoe cover will also work for Canon DSLRs. That person was wrong. This cover only partially fits my Canon EOS D5 Mark II. It will not completely insert into the hot shoe because the shape of the tab on one end of this cover does not conform to the shape on my Canon and ends up getting stuck before the cover can completely insert into the hot shoe. Also, after having physically examined the cover, I have to question whether it is truly waterproof. If it is not, then even a small moisture leakage into the hot shoe with the cover inserted can potentially cause more damage than not having a cover at all, since a cover can impede the moisture from drying out. With no cover, the moisture can dry out more quickly, minimizing any corrosive damage. In any case, my Canon's hot shoe, as are Nikons', is waterproof, so if it ever gets wet, I just need to wipe it up and let the natural air-dry do the rest.

      Comments about Nikon BS-1 Hot-Shoe Cover:

      OEM equipment. Perfect fit. D810 didn't come with one so I picked up this. It does fit in a tad snug but that's a non issue. I used the one from my D7100 and it was also snug. So, I am willing to bet the spring on the D810 hotshoe is a little bit stiffer. I don't really shoot in conditions where this cover would matter, but I do like the look of the camera better with the hotshoe cover on!

      economical protection

      By wafer

      from NJ/FL

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Nikon BS-1 Hot-Shoe Cover:

      A very economical item that does provide some level of protection to the hot shoe area. It is very easy to misplace and lose due to its small size. It probably isn't a necessity to have since the new Nikon D810 cameras do not seem to come with one, however it does provide some degree of protection to dust and moisture. It could be better in that it could be made of a rubber material as the covers are on the D4 and similar level Nikon cameras. Still, I do feel it is better having one on than not.

      This was a replacement for the one I had on my D800e.

        These little things are good to have as protection for hot shoe. But, they're very easy to lose. Purchased this as a backup one. Easy to find and purchase at B&H.

          If you want to try to keep your hot-shoe protected, you'll want to buy what Nikon refused to furnish for the D810. Even if you have another Nikon model, you'll want to buy this replacement hot-shoe cover to keep particles out of the hot-shoe.

                I suppose these covers are useful. All other Nikon bodies I have owned came with them. I bought it to preserve symmetry with the two other bodies (D800 & D7100) I still have. Probably an unnecessary purchase.

                        I lost the hot-shoe cover for D7100 and this fit perfectly.
                        I also use this for D810 since it doesn't come with hot-shoe cover.

                            I bought this because another reviewer and written that it works with the Sony a6000. It fits exactly as they had described and sticks off the back just a bit, but not too badly. It's a good inexpensive option for those looking for a hot-shoe cover for their Sony a6000.

                                      Not a completely pushed in, but NOT sticking out past the front surface, so it shouldn't catch. No interference with the shoe thinking a flash is connected.

                                      Definitely better than Nisha FSC as that item didn't cover the shoe contacts completely.

                                      The Sony shoe cap still hasn't been released in the US yet.

                                      Really it's like 1 cent worth of plastic, but it does the job. Guess I marked it down one star for [$]

                                                If you're using it you'd have have to pack dirt and electrolytes under it in order to get bad results.

                                                    Fits in the hot shoe of my Canon. A little bit loose but it's still ok.
