    Has anyone tried to remove the flap. It is irritating to me to have this thing loosely flapping around, as I often use a remote shutter release.

    I would imagine removing it would make the camera less water resistant??

    I have the RRS L bracket and trying to open the flap with the bracket in place is a PITA!!!

    Doing that would totally void the weather sealing...

    have you tried the wireless phone app? it works pretty well for just remote shutter at least,
    also if your out in cold weather and the flap isnt on it will curl and harden and you cant get it seated again till warmed up again
