Should come with a little "leash" to attach around the viewfinder eyepiece. Then it would be held captive when off the hotshoe. Wouldn't be difficult to rig up using sewing thread.

Neat looking accessory.
Thanks,

Now I need to decide if I put it on my K10D in the shelf or on the K-1 with the risk of losing it outdoors xD.
I was going to say that I'd put it on my "Super Program" that seldom gets used, but if I be honest I'll ask @Adam to draw another number and let chance allocate it to someone who truly wants one {of course, if chance works against me, it might end up in the possession who'll just sell it on eBay}.

IMO, I don't think they should send it here in the Philippines. I doubt if there'll be anyone who'll buy it at that price. It would be nice to have one though.

They probably allocated only a couple for the entire Western Hemisphere, so I wouldn't be surprised - based on the reaction here - if they sold out almost immediately.

Neither have I. If the Americas are following what seems to be the trend for Europe it won't be offered until a few of the 100 Years events have opened in the Americas.

Perhaps @pentaxus will provide a link?

I found a levelling hot shoe cover instead. Much Nerdier and so much more Pentaxian than the metal thingy.

Maybe someone who has one can confirm if it is "metal" or "metallic" whatever that means.

For £49 it should be silver at least.

Could be useful. For that price is it only for decoration or really working?
