No reason to be so maligned
Well given four negative reviews, this little piece of the camera seems much maligned. I have the EM-10, EM-1 (two of them) and the E-M1 Mark II and have very seldom lost one of these shoe covers. I bought extras several years ago, and still have them just in case.
Not much use if it's not there
... and it has a maddening proclivity for being not there. I suspect the camera is so embarrassed to be seen with such a piece of junk that it sheds them on purpose. I carry my camera off center (on a pack-strap clip) to keep it away from sweat dripping off my face, not trusting the cover to protect contacts from anything more aggressive than dry air. Since the cover falls off at the slightest provocation (usually when putting the camera into a bag) I couldn't say how well it works as protection - not enough data.Read More
Less than a week....
That's how long I've had my E-M1 before losing this thing. A couple of times over the last week I've pulled my camera out of the bag and found it missing, but have always saw it fall off as I lifted the camera or found it in the bag. Not today. I guess it's gone for good this time. I'm not paying $5 for a replacement (maybe if they came in a 3-pack).
I have owned by OMD EM-1 for less than a year and have had to purchase 3 of these parts already. The part does not stay in place! It falls off without notice during simple everyday use. This is the third one I've had to purchase. The design needs an upgrade to one with a better mechanical fit! It's a small part but a big irritant to have to dish out cash for the same part over and over again.Read More
Great camera but this is the worst part of it. Lost a couple already.
