is a hotshoe necessarry

I just noticed today that the hotshoe cover is missing from my Olympus E-30. It bugs me that the hot shoe is missing. Olympus charges $7 for each. Can someone convince me that this is really a necessary expenditure?

As far as I can tell you the cover is missing but hopefully your hotshoe is still there or you have a gaping hole in the top of you camera with some wires hanging out :rofl: . That said I survived for years with film SLRs and no cover on the shoe so a $7 piece of plastic is really a luxury item

I have never owned a camera that has a cover for the hot shoe. If you want to fill the space, get a JOBO GPS :whistle:

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.
