    This is what Nikon originally should have released with the Nikon 1 series. Maybe they are currently supplying this shoe cover with the Nikon 1 cameras now, but back when I got mine, the shoe cover was not secure and would fall out really easily. Needless to say, I recently lost it so was forced to purchase another. This shoe cover snaps in, because Nikon has modified it to have a clip on the bottom. Haven't lost it since!! 4 stars, because although a great product, this is what Nikon SHOULD have originally released.

    The moment I first got the Nikon 1 V1 camera, with the removable acccessory/flash shoe cover, I was convinced it would be lost sometime soon, and I was not disappointed. The cover does not click firmly into place, has no option for a tether, and within a few months of camera use, I fulfilled my expectations. Nikon should have designed a better fit and locking mechanism for this piece. In fact, I bought two replacements, expecting a repeat performance. Fortunately, they are cheap and easy to replace.

                It's an OEM replacement part; it fits perfectly, and seems to have improved retention over the cover that was installed at the factory. I bought three, though, after losing the factory one.

                The covers supplied with new V1s seemed to have a problem with fit. I have two bodies and both lost their covers. The replacement covers fit much more snugly. My advice is replace the originals before they are lost or at least have standbys waiting.

                      The product itself does it's job, it's pretty straightforward. It fits better than the one included with the body. Cost seems acceptable.

                        You do not want to expose the flashmount on the 1v or 2V cameras and it makes the camera look nicer. I consider it as a necessity

                          I have owned a lot of shoe covers in my day, but THIS one is the cream of the crop. I HIGHLY recommend it as a replacement for your lost one. I bought THREE (because I lose shoe covers a LOT !!)

                          These are apparently easy to lose or misplace. After a while, they don't lock into the shoe and can be lost. That's what happened to me and I don't like dirt in the shoe so I ordered three to always have a couple in the bag.

                              This cover works much better than the one originally supplied with the V1; the first one fell off so often, I finally left it in my medicine cabinet.

                                  The original hot-shoe cover Nikon designed for the V1 is too loose, very easy to lose. So of course after it falling out a bunch of times and me finding it I lost it permanently one day.

                                  Bought two of these and it is night and day, the last !/4" it snaps in nice and tight. Unlikely to lose it now.

                                        This is exactly what I needed and for a very reasonable price as well. It is a shame that this comes off and is so easily misplaced. But, I am glad to have it replaced.

                                                  Lost the one that came with my V1 it simply fell off the camera. Very poor design.

                                                    Needed a shoe cover for newly purchased Nikon 1V1 & was able to get it thru B&H. It had been difficult to find, because the camera was so new. This part is necessary to protect the hot shoe on the camera. It was perfect, shipped quickly, &I'm glad I found it. No complaints. Thanks

                                                          Current shoe cover is much less likely to get lost than the original cover. It's been revised to snap on and off less loosely. Four stars because it can still be lost when off the camera.

                                                              The replacement fits better than the original that comes with the V1. It has not fallen off since I put it!
                                                              It was a pain looking out for the original one and hoping it hadn't fallen off!!!

                                                                    The moment I first got the Nikon 1 V1 camera, with the removable acccessory/flash shoe cover, I was convinced it would be lost sometime soon, and I was not disappointed. The cover does not click firmly into place, has no option for a tether, and within a few months of camera use, I fulfilled my expectations. Nikon should have designed a better fit and locking mechanism for this piece. In fact, I bought two replacements, expecting a repeat performance. Fortunately, they are cheap and easy to replace.

                                                                      The original hot shoe cover came off during use. I decided to replace the cover and now the camera looks dressed. This replacement fits more snugly and has not dropped off during daily use. Hurrah!

                                                                      • Was this a gift?:
