Good product. I would recommend it to others. – Universal Hot Shoes Protective Case for Sony A-100/200 + Minolta A-7D/5D DSLR Camera Reviews

Pros:
This product fit my camera, as was expected. I feel much better not having to worry about dust, salty air or mist fouling the connectors. The camera looks nice with it attached, as well. I've added to the product images a composition of cap mounted atop my Sony A450 to help visualize how it looks attached to the camera. I'm very happy with this product.
Cons:
No. Maybe only price. The price of genuine product is $7, so $1.6 is better. But it's still expensive for a piece of plastic.
Other:
I have a Sony A450 which comes without a shoe cap. I wanted to cover my hot shoe to keep it clean. Since this is such a small item, I really don't understand why Sony does not include it with the camera.
Bottomline:
Because it is a little thing, it can be easy to lose. I would recommend to buy a few reserve.
