Hi
I have emailed Canon asking if they have the metal bracket clip for the viewfinder 300D, Im not sure if they will reply due to the age of the Camera + there is question of high Canon prices

Does anyone know of any Camera shops (UK) that may stock this part new or good used not a problem or can anyone suggest a workaround Mine keeps popping out :(


Thanks
Smokes

smokes,

What particular "bracket clip" are you referring to? I'd imagine they would have parts for every digital camera they ever made, as well as a lot of the more recent film bodies. Nikon certainly do (or rather "did" when I needed a lens mount repair on an aging FA).

It is the clip that holds the Viewfinder in a Canon 300D body :confused:

The cover on the rear of the viewfinder with the rubberised surround? The bit that on virtually every Canon seems designed to fall off at the drop of a hat?

I'm guessing it's called the focus screen retaining clip, but that's just a guess. I found the parts manual for the 350 and I'm also guessing that it's going to be close, maybe even the same part.

Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Try these guys in the uk:

Ordered various internal parts from them a few times and they never have failed to deliver. Give them the part codes and they should be able to get it for you.

Many Thanks I am going to email them & I may be in Luck. Out of Curosity I am wanting to know how much a Black body casing only would cost, think I may be in for a shock :lol: :eek:

Here is what I got back.
Your location field is blank. If you're in the US, go on ebay and search for procamerarepair and send them a message. If you're not in the US.. and if you want me to ask them to order it; let me know and I will buy it and ship it to you.

Dear Tom,
This is not a part I keep in stock. If you would like it ordered, you will have to allow me 3-5 days before I can ship the item.

The part is $6 and that is with shipping included.

To order the part, send me an email including your PayPal to arrange payment.

Best regards,
Don
