missing screws for g7x

Hi

I dropped my g7x recently and one of the bottom small screws seems to have fallen out. How do I get some more?

Cheers

Joe

Canon does not sell any screws. Does anyone know a source to get right screws for Canon cameras?

Maybe you can send it in for repair.

Re: missing screws for g7x

I spoke to Canon yesterday and they only gave me two options: 1) Send in my camera and get a new one (same model) for $259 or 2) talk to their sales people about upgrading to a newer model.

I was hoping to simply buy a screw for less than $30. The camera still works great so I have no desire to spend hundreds of dollars to get a different one.

If you are in a town with a well equipped hobby shop you may find the parts there but for the rest of us McMaster Carr is the source for this sort of thing.  You will need to measure one of the screws that didn't fall out.  McCarr has no minimum order and they are very fast at getting things out:  [Removed 3rd party link per Forum Community Guidelines]

Yes a hobby shop either local or online will have them. Get a cheap digital caliper at a big box store, measure the diameter of the screw shaft and the lenght of the screw shaft (not the head). The determine if it is countersunk or flat head. The screws and cheap digital caliper should all be less than $30.

Just thought of one more option, a local computer repair place. They use all sorts of small metric screws and can help you out real cheap and fast.
