I bought a digital camera for my daughter a few years ago. It's a Canon
point & shoot, but with a better than usual set of settable parameters:
Shutter and Aperture priority, etc. It still works fine, and she hasn't
really abused it, but 2 of the 3 the battery door clips - tiny little
flimsy tabs - have broken off. The door just barely holds closed, and
the next stiff breeze may break the last tab off as well.
She's had a lot of fun with it, and has learned a little about what the
various setting do. I figured I'd just get her a new one. Turns out that
Canon's successors to this model are actually less capable, missing all
of the semi-manual settings. That same model can still be found here and
there, at three or four times the original price.
The battery door is available on line, but the broken parts are on the
camera body proper. For now I'd like to glue a couple of small pieces of
Velcro, the kind that are sold as cable wraps, to the shiny plastic body
of the camera; a long piece to wrap around the door and a short "anchor"
piece for it to mate with around the other side.
The spring tension of the battery terminals is significant, so it would
have to be a pretty strong bond. Any ideas?
