Use it up.
Wear it out.
Make it do.
Or, do without.
These little, $99, point-and-shoot digital cameras are a marvel.
But they are not without faults.
Based on multiple Monte Carlo simulations, the ERJ consulting group determined that there is a 23% chance that the camera will land on the battery access door when dropped.

This problem would be solved if the "factory" used polycarbonate, high-impact ABS, polyamide or polycarbonate.
So it was necessary to splint the battery access door.
But what to use for a splint?
|You may recognize this. It came from a beverage can.|
I glued it to the battery access door with Shoe Goo.
I love it when I can put a $30 (price, used) camera back on the road for the price of a pop-can tab and 2 ml of glue.
