Question about Cameras
My 3 mega pixel camera's battery cover is broken. Where can I get the replacement part.
Go to homedepot and get a small (1.5" x 2" x 1.5") L-shaped THIN METAL BRACKET used for bracing shelves. One side of the L is longer -- slip this between the bottom of the camera and the tripod pad that holds the camera, with the shorter side of the L parallel to the side of the camera. Push the short side of the L tight against the camera body and tighten the tripod screw, securing the longer section of the metal brace under the battery hatch.
It's not quite a fixed hatch, but it works great for me. The key will be whether your tripod has a mounting pad big enough to secure the L-brace enough to keep the battery cover closed under pressure. I have a Mohawk tripod with a detachable mounting pad and it's perfect.

Yeah! I gave up, too.
I bought an Olympus SP570 UZ. I like it. It does not take automatic photos as beautifully as the 2000C, but I guess they will have to do. I bought it because it has video with sound. Since I bought it, it has dropped in price $100. I like the fact that the camera hard drive can be upgraded through the USB cable on my computer - which I did yesterday ... cool. If you get one, make certain you get the original Olympus XD+ (that's a plus sign) Picture/Memory card because it uses the camera's Panoramic feature and you can also download some neat art stuff to the Master software.(Don't lose the serial number of the card, like I did, so I couldn't download the software.I threw out the packaging.) It is also the fastest card. This camera has a sports feature and image stabilization. But I really like the video aspect. Very very easy! The 2 Gig card is big enough for the videos. You will need a card reader, too.

I am looking for one too and cant find one. I contacted Olympus and they said they no longer sell that part. I tried just buying a new camera on Ebay, but that runs about another $50.
