Fujifilm s5000 battery door broken


g'day
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

I have lost the bolt that fits inside the Slik 88 head, It secures the camera to the tripod


The bolt (actually a knurled bolt) is 1/4 inch. Almost any good nut and bolt supplier should have something that will make a suitable replacement. Just select the right length to suit your tripod. You should also be able to get a bolt that only has a thread on the end bit and a bare or recessed shoulder, similar to the original.

Sounds like the lens you're trying to use is very slow compared to a regular camera lens. You may have to increase the ISO or raise the exposure compensation setting to get lighter pics.
