Since the cost of replacing the part is more than the camera's worth, I would just get some JB Weld or better yet, JB Quick and fill the crack and clamp it together.

Thanks, the camera is working like a champ, The D2h is an excellent piece of engineering. I almost don't even care about the crack, it is not an issue at all to the functioning of the camera. Though I am somewhat concerned about moisture and/or dust getting in there.

So, where do I buy this JB Weld or JB Quick product?

I've seen it at Lowe's, Ace Hardware, Home Depot, and the True Value hardware stores.  Probably at the big auto parts stores too.
