Loose hotshoe

I've noticed my flash not staying secure very well lately and on closer inspection discovered my hotshoe has a little bit of play in it. I have some important shoots coming up that will require flash and one may even be on the back of a motorcycle so I need my flash to be secure!
So I sent my body to C.R.I.S. this morning to get this moving. It should be covered under warranty but I'm a little bummed to be without it. I'll need to take my K-x on a trip to visit family in a few days but I'm glad I have that body to fall back on. Hopefully the repair won't take too long.
