Re: Dropped my camera

So it looks like the screws pulled out of the body. 

 

If you look at the 1D IV exploded view it doesn’t show anything inside the camera like nuts or a backing plate. 

 

If you disassembled the part into the three pieces shown  I think you could glue the plastic piece on around the contacts and then the larger metal piece to the plastic part, as well as coating the screws with glue and reinserting into the screw holes. 

 

That’s what I would try if it was my camera. Otherwise it looks like you would need a new top body part.

Re: Dropped my camera

Re: Dropped my camera

If you look closely you have two metal pieces assembled together. Look at the video I posted to see how to take apart.

Re: Dropped my camera

That’s exactly what I’m thinking of! It’s 5 years old and I’m wondering if sending it to Canon would be worth it. I can still use it but no pop up flash , Camera thinks it has auxiliary flash on. I was thinking I could still use it on trips where I would not want to take a new camera. I wonder if the 80D is a good choice.

If you were happy with the 60 the 80D is even better.

Help! My new puppy and my Canon 60D had a bit of a run in and the hotshoe bracket came off the camera. I cannot see how it attaches. I tried holding it on and the flash does fire. I hate to send the camera away to get fixed it’s over 5 years old. I do use the external flash often . I thought about trying to carefully glue it on , is that a crazy idea? 56834659-18B6-4498-A03B-4FE3995B2D11.jpeg


iFixit has instructions to open up a 60D if your are so inclined.

Any event that did that much damage probably did other damage too. I say take Rick's advice.
