Re: its a catastrophe!

To be fair, those are designed to be lost. Likewise lens caps, filter holders, little plastic spannery thing to tighten up the clamps on the tripod, plastic memory card holders etc.

I've actually got a theory that plastic is in some way alergic to pockets and leaps out and makes a dash for freedome as soon as you're not looking.

Re: its a catastrophe!

LOL, I agree with peel, I was just amazed you still had a rubber cover for your flash synch socket in the first place!

Now come on, work it out, that is something any former Blue Peter watcher can make out of sticky back plastic.... no don't try and con me Fi, you DID watch Blue Peter!!!!

<g>

By the way, if you need a clue, buy a cheap eraser (the rubber kind, not the hard almost plastic type) use a cocktail stick sized metal stick, screwdriver, etc. heated and push a hole in it. Now carve around the hole with a sharp knife until you have a rubber stopper shaped thingy :o)

There you go, you now have what over 1 million people worldwide use as a stopper for their flash synch socket :o)

If you really want to boast to your friends, take a black felt tip and colour it in.... they'll never know :o)

Cheers,
Rob

Re: its a catastrophe!

Women!! You are just so practical.

Far better to spend a few days on Rob's idea than just to stick some tape over the socket.
