I bought a canon 350d off ebay spares and repairs - good condition just needs a new CF card slot due to a couple of missing pins.
Does anyone know where I can get a new CF card slot? Is it the same part for all cameras or will I need a specific 350D part?

I looked at a teardown video and it doesn't look as bad as it could be. I've done similar if not more complex repairs like this before anyway. Sending it off to canon isn't an option as the local photography shop quoted around £90 - the camera is only worth around £40.

You only have to take the back cover off anyway and only a small amount of desoldering is needed.

OK. I said that, because most people who start off with a question like that have never ever done anything at that level.

"Can I do X?"
'Well...X can be done. The question is...can you do X?'

Do you know if I could get away with just putting a couple of new pins in rather than replacing the whole lot or even the whole cf card slot?

Depends on the level of damage.
If you can get another CF slot and cannibalize bits from it...maybe.

It's just the pins - one missing and one that has snapped off.
