Nice photo. I'm thinking about getting one for my FZ150 as soon as we learn more about the one that's stuck on Liz's LX3. I think it might just need to be worked out with some pressure on the front, if that possible, and then installed and reinstalled a couple of times. Hope she gets it out OK and then can check it over.

Richard uses Delrin, a high grade plastic, for the hot shoe covers rather than aluminum as I first thought. According to DuPont, "Delrin® acetal resin bridges the gap between metals and ordinary plastics with a unique combination of creep resistance, strength, stiffness, hardness, dimensional stability, toughness, fatigue resistance, solvent and fuel resistance, abrasion resistance, low wear and low friction."
