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?
It looks like the screws pulled through the lower part of the hot shoe mount; are they still in place on the camera if you carefully look under the hot shoe? If so get a replacement hot shoe, there is too much stress for any glue to provide a proper fix.
You will have to do some disassembly but the hot shoe should plug in with no soldering required.
