A550 - Where is the Hot Shoe Cover?
Dec 23, 2009

I've posted my initial impressions of my A550 vs my KM5D over at the KM DSLR forum.

But the initial impression I really can't understand is the A550 coming without the standard Hot Shoe Cover. It wasn't on my A550, where instead there was a sticky plastic strip attaching an ad to the top of the hot shoe guide rail.

I couldn't find the cover anywhere in the box, and the manual doesn't mention its existence. So I spent A$8 buying a pack of four such hot shoe covers on Ebay.

Did your A550 come with or without the Hot Shoe Cover?

Would this be a deal breaker for you?
