Hello everybody!
Battery compartment door of my 30D is lost. All i could find to buy fast (in another city) is a door for 5D (non-Mark). Is it compatible? I can order one at ebay but it will surely take weeks till i actually get it. Canon will want fortune for it if i were to buy it from their service here.
Thanks!

There's a 30D that's broken for spares on eBay. Keep your eyes on eBay for more I'd say.

Well, this item there seems to be already used for spare parts, haha :) The part I need is already missing!

It's obviously a popular part :D

I'm sure another one will turn up.

Battery compartment door of my 30D is lost.

Any chance you have a grip for your 30D and have it stored on there in the battery door compartment holder?

thing is i would love to have it ASAP. If time didn't matter to me, i could easily bought it for 20$ + 4$ shipping at ebay.
That's why there's a question about compatibility

The part number for the battery door of the 5D (classic) is different from the part number of the battery door of the 30D.

Yeah, i checked it. Yet both cameras use same BP-511 battery, so there is a possibility it would fit.

Yes, there's a slot for the battery compartment door on the post of the grip (the post is the part of the grip that goes into the camera body where the battery normally resides).

So, I wonder if any of you guys have 5d and 30d to see if the door fits. I will very much appreciate your help!

in reality, the major thing the door does is close the little interlock switch so the camera can power up. If all else fails, order another door & use a wee bit of blu-tac to hold the switch down and use the camera without a door in the meantime. If you're too worried doing this in a dusty environment you could always use masking tape to cover the hole temporarily...


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:
