Pentax KX-Body Replace?

Is it possible to replace the body of the camera--I dropped the camera with an external flash on the hot shoe--an broke the mount-hot shoe.

No sorry, this would be a repair issue and in my opinion, an expensive one if even possible.

You are probably best off contacting Pentax repair services, since they are the manufacturer!

Hello,

It depends on how severe the damage is. The hot shoe is connected to the pentaprism and in my mind there is more than likely damage to the internal electronics which would make replacing the body more cost effective. Years ago I had the dashboard of my 76 Camaro repaired for almost what the car had cost me in the first place. It was never the same and it always rattled.
