Using N1 without cable in rainy condition is impossible - there should be at least a rubber lid provided to keep water out of the N1. Wasn't a problem at all to use the Unleashed 09 in rainy conditions.

I would also love to get a rubber lid to cover the top plug. Would even be willing to pay extra for that.

OK, thanks!

We're thinking of having one produced. It won't be very soon though - Injection Mold tools are very expensive. We will ask our Manufacturer if he can add this to our current tools...

Please don’t say that it isn’t waterproof as it is?

That would be a MASSIVE design failure, I cannot believe that you’d make such a fundamental error, but looking closely at it, it does look totally exposed to weather. At the very least you should have put the socket at the bottom, not the top.
You haven’t even got a seal on the usb lead so that isn’t really going to protect it against rain.

I really did not expect to have to be using tape to offset poor design, I think you should prioritise making a proper cap for it before you start getting lots of returns....

I would also love to get a rubber lid to cover the top plug and every one should get it for free. The connector without a rubber is massiv design failure especially the connector is at the top!!

Agreed, couldn't say it better.

Any news on producing a rubber lid to make the N1 waterproof? I hope this accessory is still planned.

Sorry, while we have worked a little on the design of this cap, we have not yet taken any steps towards the production. We are planning to add this to an injection mold tool when we'll start producing a new casing (eg for other camera models). It's simply not feasible to create a tool just for the cap, for the quantities that we'd be able to sell it in.
