Lost PC Sync Cap!

I lost the tiny screw-in cap on my K-1! Anyone know where I can get a replacement? By not having it on, does it impact water resistance?

I would expect those to be the same as for other cameras, since the port is the same. The user manual should list the part code, for my k3ii it is 2p and it was the same for the k7 etc. If so, you could try to find an official part in stock or get a knockoff from ebay if all else fails...

edit: to help searching, the manual calls it "sync socket 2p cap"

Hereʻs one that will fit, but it doesnʻt screw.

Missing the PC sync cap should not compromise water resistance. It is there to keep dust and dirt out of the connector.

If you really want one that screws in, Iʻd probably call or buy an As Is FSLR at, making sure it had a screw-in PC sync cap. They start at $1.29!
Another idea is to check out your local craigslist, Goodwill, etc.

Thereʻs also a bunch on amazon:

PC cables are pretty standardized, so it shouldnʻt matter if you have a Pentax, Nikon, Canon, etc.

Those were made to get lost, simply too tiny to keep track of. I wish my K-1 had a rubber cover attached, like my Sony a850.
