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.
If it was important I guess Nikon would have shipped it with the camera. It makes the top of the camera look cleaner & saves snagging the shoe rails on your clothes.Such a small item & black. Its going to be hard to keep track of.

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!
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.
