    The front ring on my Canon SX400 keeps popping out when I take my Macro lens off, and it's making me nuts, I feel like that ring is going to break one of these days... there appears to be some blue rubber cement/glue that was holding the ring in, and I'd like to purchase that same glue to repair it, does any one know what glue is good to fix this problem? I don't want to use the wrong kind and damage my lens. I tried Google, and it keeps bringing up superglue, and I'm not real confident that the vapors from that would be ok for the camera lens. Thanks for any help!!

    Plastic to metal? Maybe an automotive adhesive, but TBH, I'd search for a real camera repair shop.

    The inside part that it adheres to, is only to plastic I believe. You are probably right. It does pop back in and function as normal, but it's getting to to not come back out, that'd be nice. Thanks for your response.

    I tried a quick search on blue adhesives and came up with a carpet adhesive and glue dots. I don't think adhesive colors are standardized like some fluids are. Good luck.
