2 months after the warranty on my MINOLTA S414[/b] digital camera expired, I noticed that the plastic battery compartment cover had developed a stress fracture. It seems that the springs which ensure good battery contact are far too powerful and the pressure they apply has caused the plastic to split. There is little point in spending good money having the cover replaced as presumably the same problem will re-occur. I plan to come up with a makeshift repair which will strengthen the cover. The camera has been treated with absolute care, so all in all this fault is very disappointing, and buyers should beware – the S414[/b] has a metal body but flimsy plastic components are also used!
