BS-N1000 Shoe Cover for Nikon 1 V1 1.8 5 10 10
I think Nikon Fixed the issue I recently got a Nikon V1 and have used it quite a bit and have not babied it at all and have not used a camera case with it and the hot-shoe cover has yet to come off. The Big thing is that Nikon used a proprietary hot shoe instead of a standard one. I want to use my pocket wizards and can't. Even the Panasonic LX3 has one! Its a shame because otherwise the 1V is awesome! April 6, 2012
Nikon V1 shoe cover not up to Nikon standards. I have been a dedicated Nikon fan since 1968. I recently purchased the V1 camera to replace my wife's Nikon D90 since she wanted a camera with less bulk and interchangeable lenses. For all intents and purposes, the V1 has proven to be a very nice alternative but we are both most disappointed with the build of the shoe cover. The cover was lost in a very brief time. Since the camera normally has the GPN-100 GPS accessory on the camera except during flash photography, it is not as big a deal now that the camera is in fairly heavy use. When the GPS is not on the camera, it is a real pain in the backsides to not have the cover in place to protect the contacts from dirt and moisture. Nikon, please... please do something about this awful cheap cover. It just doesn't fit the camera when everything else about this offering is so nice. February 22, 2012
turn-off I was ready to purchase the V1 until I asked where the flash is mounted. I was told: the plastic cover slides off, it did and fell on the floor. There should be a metal exposed shoe that the flash slides into not a plastic civer on an $800.00 camera. I was very disappointed. George November 10, 2011
Shoe cover gone Love the camera ( have one for work & one for personal use) but I too lost the shoe cover with the second use. Sadly it fell in snow and will never be found. I am annoyed that I have purchase another cover with a month of purchase. July 5, 2012
Fall of several times I had only used the camera a few months but the shoe cover has already fallen off three times. Probably stuck in clothing or camera bag when the camera was picked up. Twice I found it but the third time it disappeared. March 19, 2013

The shoe covers do not stay on and everyone is losing them so no one has replacements in stock and they can't even order them. Will Nikon come up with a fix for this?
