I’m a freelance photographer in the middle of a multi-year ’round-the-world trip by surface transport.

I started by heading East from London, England, in June 2007 and expect to make it back to London some time in late 2009 or early 2010. I’m available for freelance work wherever I happen to be in the world.

HELP ! 5D repair needed...

I’m cross-posting this message from Sportsshooter, as I’m hoping folks here might have some insight into this problem.

So, I’ve got a bit of a problem:

The metal “loop” (though it’s more of a rectangular metal flange) that my 5D’s strap attaches to the camera through has come… well… loose… The thing wiggles around quite a bit side-to-side (though not front-to-back, OR up-and-down)…

Without dismantling the cameras body I can’t tell if it’s just a loose screw, or if (god forbid) something has actually broken loose inside the body. There is NOT any rattling / clinking at this point, but it could still be a screw that’s loose-but-hasn’t-fallen-out.

This is all specific to the RIGHT (i.e. shutter-release-side) camera strap attachment point.

Has anyone has this problem? Does anyone know how to solve this? I DO have a set of mini-screwdrivers with me, and I AM comfortable working with electronics, I’ve just never opened up a camera before. If I have to open the thing up, is this area of the camera easy to get to?

NOTE: I’m sufficiently far off the grid (in Calcutta today. Heading for Bhutan tomorrow morning) at the moment that I’m having trouble finding camera repair shops that I’d trust with my rig. Whatever solution comes forward, I’ll need to implement it myself…
