Fits a bit tighter on the body (D300) than the original cap and doesn't seem as easy to unscrew as the original cap either, which is great. It completely seals the lens mount on your camera and prevents dust and moisture from entering. Great product, though a bit expensive for what it is.

I ordered this for my Nikon D80 and it fits perfectly. I feel confident using this that it won't fall off randomly and that it's a good protection from dust. The second image with the "F mount" lettering is what my cap actually looks like.

Bought this Nikon BF-1B SLR Body Cap for Lens Mount after reading an article from Photojojo describing a body cap being used as a pinhole camera. As it turned out, I ended not using it for that purpose, because milling down the raised Nikon lettering seemed to be more of a hassle than I wanted to go through.

My older body cap was the Nikon BF-1, and owners of classic Nikon 35mm SLRs will remember that one in black plastic from the '80s and before. It has a small small white index dot for lining up on the camera body, and inside the cap it's marked "BF-1" and "MADE IN JAPAN" in raised letters. But using that cap on a contemporary Nikon DSLR is not recommended, as I understand, as it could damage the contacts, so I put it away among my collectables.

The new BF-1B DSLR Body Cap is a product of evolution. The original Nikon body cap from the 1960s had a "Nippon Kogaku Tokyo" logo embossed on the front, and that's the one that I had on my original Nikon F SLR. This was replaced sometime in the '70s with the Type 2, which looked similar to the current body caps, and fit far better. The original BF-1 (or Type 3) came later in the '70s and was still used in the '80s, as that's the one that came with my Nikon EL2. The BF-1A came in the mid-1980s, and evidently had a number of quiet changes.

Will probably go for one of the off-brand Fotodiox Camera Body Cap for Nikon models for my pinhole camera experiment, as those don't have raised logos.

Body cap is a uality mold that is constructed of rugged plastic (solid, not flimsy) that is a perfect fit for my Nikon D7000. Detailing on the cap is crisp and I highly recommend this cap to protect your camera investment.

It fits my Nikon camera body. Don't use it on your Canon or Pentax. Do not eat. Do not fold, spindle or mutilate. Minimum word length review rules aren't helpful.

These body caps are designed to cover the sensor of a Nikon DSLR when it's lens is removed. The product I received was indistinguishable from the body cap that I received with the camera at purchase. The plastic is sturdy, and it is designed perfectly to fit the Nikon standard F- Mount. It fits snugly, and I feel confident that it will not fall out or allow dust and other matter to reach the sensor. For the price, it can't be beat.

Really looks nice and professional. Fits nicely on all my Nikon adapters. (I don't have any Nikon bodies.) Firm, but not stiff.

If I need more body caps I'll definitely but more of these.

Bonus -- Even a little arrow to remind you of Nikon's "righty releasee, lefty lockee" protocol.
