Where to buy an Olympus XZ-1 Hot Shoe Cover?
Jun 29, 2013

Hello,

I did some searches with no real answers to this question.   I know some people question the need for it, but the XZ's and the Pen's have the Electronic Accessories port that can get dirty quickly.  I also notice that since the camera comes in and out of my pocket a lot it catches more on threads without the cover on.    I am guessing the cover is the same for the new Olympus Pens.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You can find these on ebay at a price that beats Olympus by a mile.

The Generic ones dont seal the Oly Acc port.

Craig Please post a link. I already searched ebay and non of them are the official Olympus cover that seals off the accessory port below the hot shoe on the back.
