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.

Comments about BS-N1000 Hot Shoe Cover for Nikon 1 V1 Camera (Black):

Not sure how Nikon didn't get it right to begin with. This little hot shoe cover for the Nikon V1 that came with the camera would slip off too easily. And of course get lost. The reason for the cover is to protect the senors. So after losing a few I had to use my flash attachment to protect the sensor.

Thankfully the ones I just bought fit nice and snug.

A small thing but one expects everything to be just right!

            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.

            Comments about BS-N1000 Hot Shoe Cover for Nikon 1 V1 Camera (Black):

            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.

                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.

                        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.

                                    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
