So I whipped out my old Nikon R8, opened up the handle and saw that the old batteries were there. They were corroded, and had corroded all over the battery leads. I took a shot and put in some new AAs, but as expected, no dice.

Short of buying a new camera is there anyway to fix this? Should I try to sand the leads or something?

Hi, is it just the batt holder that is shot? Would an R10 battery holder fit in an R8 ????
