    WG-AS3 Water Guard for D700 Camera's Hot Shoe when used with SB-900 Flash is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but overprices Adding this product to my gear bag makes my SB-900 flash unit look more complete attached to the D700.It covers the metal rails quite well and makes the flash look like it was made just for the D700.Haven't tested spraying water on it but it does appear that the WG-AS3 covers every small crevice between the two quite well.Sturdy, firm but slightly flexible rubber material.Molded without defects or frills.Does what it claims to do but for $, I think it is overpriced. Personally I would have liked to see the AS1, AS2 and AS3 come free with the SB-900 considering how much the thing costs.If you're concerned about looks and better water resistance, go for it. Otherwise wait till you can find a used for $7.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Item to Fix D700's Problem Hi, I brought it not only waterproof also to fix problem of Nikon d700's shoe. The problem is when sb900 attatch on d700, sometimes non-expected flashing occur. Nikon know it is critical problem of d700 but i cannot take repair service for it because my d700 was purchased in Korea so my warranty cannot cover my camera in the US. WG-AS3 is alternative way to fix I found. It make connection of both items(D700 and SB900) more strong. Since I use it, sb900 never show problem. Only for it, I really really appriciate it even it take my money! Think! When you use d700 and sb900. You have to buy WG-AS3 or you should go to Nikon service center ASAP. Thanks!! ** I think the appropriate price of WG-AS3 is under $15.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fixed my hotshoe problem. I only bought this item to see if it could resolve the flash misfiring issue the d700 experiences. It indeed works and reduces movement between the camera and the flash, which is most likely the root cause of the problem to begin with. Also I have the SB700, so yes it works with other speedlites if you were wondering. A little pricey for a piece of rubber but definitely worth it for solving this annoying bug!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from useful/useless accessory bought this purely for trying to remedy the D700/SB900 random firing issues that many nikon shooters encounter with this combo. Have to say it puts a damper if not eliminates the problem completely

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well! I have a Nikon D700- and the hot shoe sometimes does not support my SB 900. So it will misfire- or not fire full power. I heard I could send it in and have the hot shoe redone- but so far, this has worked great. I have only used it once for the wedding season, so we will see if I can avoid $200 for not sending it in.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good looks on the camera I bought because the issue I had of the sb 900 misfire it looks it resolve the problem in 85% in a way the flash is more tighter on the camera makes the contacts more efective but sometimes I struggle to fire the flash but not has mush anymore

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An ounce of protection This little piece of plastic can save your $ camera.It fits snugly over the flash shoe to prevent water from entering the camera through the flash mount.Useful in the rain or when photographing near water sports where there is a possibility of splashing.While the descriptions states it is for the Nikon D-700 and SB-900 combination, it fits the D-800 and SB-910 with no problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Additional support for the SB 900 As I had a hotshoe issue with my D700 and the SB 900 flash which is bantered about on the net but not acknowledged by NIKON I bought the device for extra support and weather resistance. I am pleased that Nikon says it will work with my new D 800 also. It doesn't match up 100% snugly, but seems to help support the flash.
