Boneheaded! I stripped a "000" size philips screw on my Canon DSLR. Help. Pics.

Boneheaded! I stripped a "000" size philips screw (very very small) on my DSLR.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Its in a tricky spot and I've tried a smaller screw and a torx screw to remove but only succeeded in making the stripped screw more round and smooth. ugh.

I was thinking of perhaps dropping some super glue in the hole but I have found that super glue discolors the black plastic around the screw (I don't want to mess this up more).

Any ideas? Thanks you
