Due to being an idiot I now no longer have the hotshoe cover - anyone know if you an get replacements? I looked on ebay but they were only to cover the top part not the lvf connection bit on the back.

I think you can oder them straight from your local panasonic rep. They will gladly sell you a few, and if I remember correctly they won't even cost that much.

Damn… I heard someone on DPreview got them for few pounds each…

Can be just my memory, or your retailer :D

Try eBay.

Personally, I wouldn't think it is an essential piece of kit. I have my hotshoe cover in a small zip lock bag with rest of the collection of small and useless camera bits.

Thanks everyone - have looked on ebay and seen the generic covers. I was wanting to get one that covers the EVF slot too, but maybe I don't need to worry about it.

Will try the place I got my GF1 from anyway and see how much they want.

The hotshoe doesn't really need to be covered but the LVF connection probably should be. I use a small piece of black gaffer tape. Works a treat and the real gaffer tape, available in most high end photo shops doesn't leave any sticky mess either.

Cheers
