Re: GF1 Battery Compartment Latch Door. GX1, not GF2

How about using an elastic. I realize it will block a bit of the viewfinder but you can use the money you'll save to buy the GF2.
Good luck.

If you do upgrade, suggest you spend the $ against a GX1, which is a much better upgrade.  You should be able to get bodies on Ebay for $300 or less as I did, which is very nearly the price I paid for a much more highly used GF1, a camera that is still going strong.  The only reason I don't use the GF1 so much is I am very taken with the GX1.  I really did not expect to win GX1 on Ebay, but am glad that I did with barely 500 shutter actuations on it.
