All of this coupled with its very low price has made the JJC HC-S Hot Shoe Cover very popular earning a massive amount of reviews online from third-party, independent photographers including a large number from Sony A6000 owners.
This hot shoe cover is enough to protect your a6000’s hot shoe mount from various issues such as dirt, dust, grit, sand, moisture as well as any potential damage that may occur during transit or from an accident.

The Foto&Tech Hot Shoe Cover With Bubble Level
Although this cover for Sony cameras is enough to protect your hot shoe mount the JJC HC-S Hot Shoe Cover covered above is a lot more popular due to the fact that it is cheaper while offering almost everything this mount does. The main addition to this mount is the spirit level and many photographers will either have the same functionality provided by one of their current accessories such as their tripod or simply not need a spirit level anyway.
Still, it is definitely worth considering picking this up as one of your a6000 camera accessories. Although cheaper than the cover above, it is still very budget friendly while also getting the job done. It is quick to mount and unmount on your camera too making it very easy to use.
