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:

            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.

                                  I thought I had lost my hot-shoe cover, so I ordered 4 so that I could have extras. I tend to have a hard time keeping up with that little thing. After I placed the order, I found mine. But, they were very inexpensive and I am happy to have four extra ones! They are a perfect fit for my Nikon D7000!

                                        OK - It's just a little piece of plastic but it does it's job keeping the hot shoe clean. And, when (not if) you misplace it it is cheap to replace.

                                            This is an OEM replacement part...not a lot else you can say, is there? Of course it fits perfectly and does what it's supposed to do.

                                                      I bought a few of these since I have a problem losing my hot shoe covers. They fit my hot shoe on my nikon d700 perfectly and I feel better that the hotshot is protected again. If you're anything like me, I would recommend buying a few of these to have as backups!

                                                      It's a $ item that can essentially save a $6000 camera. You HAVE to own this if you shoot outside! Wish it clipped in just a bit more snug.
