EM-5 waterproofing WITHOUT that little hotshoe cap...?
Oct 7, 2012

see example on the bottom right

as shown in this image.. would that damage the camera?

i lost that little cap months ago, and i was wondering do i really need it?  is the em-5 still "water resistant"  without that piece for the hotshoe?
