VKO VHS-S3 (3 IN 1 Pack) hot shoe cover compatible with Sony Multi Interface hot shoe cameras
I bought in a few others in the past from other manufacturers and they either slide off, Don't set correctly, or just plain don't fit. So to say the least I was very skeptical but to my delight not only do the snap in place and they look original and the price is amazing
Overall, these are good hot shoe covers, they could be slightly better if they were a little more snug in my opinion. The ones that I received slide off a little easier than the original. I have not had them come off during use but I have had them move slightly so having them fit a little more snug would make them that much better.
OK, there isn't much for these to do other than go in your flash hot shoe and they do that. I never cared with my Canon cameras, but with the different connecters in the Sony hot shoe I make sure this is always in place when I'm not using a flash AND I tend to loose them, so this does what I need it to do.
There aren't many things I lose, but this thing is one of them. Pleased to be able to pick up a pile of them for so cheap. They fit and hold fine in my sony a7riii. There are a lot of small contacts in the hot shoe, so I feel like it is worth the effort to keep it clean and protected. I am sure I will lose all these and be back for more...
Since the hotshoe is a weak point and where water can ingress I try to keep it covered when not using a trigger. It happens you loose the OEM hotshoe covers and find yourself always buying one or two at the camera store when you remember for spares since I tend to loose them in the field a lot. I got 5 for the price I would pay for a OEM one and the aftermarket ones fit my two bodies just as the OEM does. Great product.
I was struggling with the exposed hotshoe for a long time. Then I got the great idea to search on Amazon and I found these Perfect!
I lost my original Sony one and was longing for a replacement because of the connectors on the Sony hotshot should not be exposed. I found this pack of 5 which was about the price for on Sony OEM one and now I have extras just in case I lose another one.
Those little hot shoe caps are very elusive. They seem to always want to go hide. I am glad that I now have replacements for them. Great value.
