Broken bolt I broke one of the bolts that attaches the leg to my Gitzo. It's a carbon fiber model from 20 years ago but I can't seem to find the model number.

    we also have a similar situation. The bolt broke off the tripod and the black plastic piece that holds the leg together is missing.

Fujifilm s5000 battery door broken

i broke mine a couple of years ago and fixed it by drilling and tapping two holes to suit 6-32 x 11/4" bolts as shown in the attached photo... one of the holes had to be enlarged to suit 6mm x20 because the thread is in a very flimsy area and had stripped
BTW the battery cover doesnt have to be removed from the camera as is shown in the photo! the photo was taken after i disassembled the camera for another repair

it works well with a couple of provisos...
1- the bolt heads may get in the way of mounting the camera on some tripods without modification
2-not as quick to change the batteries
3- dont screw the bolts down too tight - or the threads will strip

before this method i made a metal plate, the same shape as the base of the camera and used the camera tripod socket to attach it... thus keeping the battery door closed [ the advantage of this was that i could drill and tap a thread to attach the lot to a tripod - and the tripod mounting hole could be ia the centreline of the lens - making panoramas easier]11_28_2011_10_48_37_am.jpg
