i just noticed that one of the prongs for my canon rebel xsi's hot shoe is bent inwards. i've perused through the net for solutions and i'm down to two solutions: 1. brute-force the metal with a screwdriver (or other tool), or 2. have a professional do it (which I'm more inclined to do) is there anyone out there who experienced this problem? what did you do? if i send it back to canon for repairs, how much will it cost? how long will it take? i don't want to part with my camera since i'm preparing for a trip to london next month. any help/advice would be appreciated!
