Is anybody counting? How many uses so far? You could always dismantle it and use various bits e.g.Mirror to touch up your make-up, Strap to mend broken things or tie something up, maybe even to hold your trousers up if your buttons pop off. Lens could be a handy magnifying glass or a means to make a camp fire should you be stranded somewhere. All those tiny screws are bound to come in useful for something someday and then you could use the camera body as a mini plant pot and put a geranium in it.

take the innards out, seal the back up, take the glass out of a broken lens and seal the lenscap on to give a rather different "cocktail shaker"

Leave it on the car seat when parking in a less salubrious area of the city. In other words, donate it to support a local teenagers crack habit

Fill it with sand, tie it to a piece of string and use it as a pendulum!

Take it swimming and tell everyone that cameras are all waterproof and they should try it with their own.

Take it into as many camera shops as possible to see how many different reasons for it being broken you get!

42 ? That gives me an idea !!

Collect as many broken cameras as you can and build a life size replica of Marvin the Paranoid Android then have conversations with it about Life, the Universe and Everything

But the answer to that was 37!

Glue a load together to form a staircase to the loft and turn that into a darkroom!

You'd need the old box ones for that though!

Ian, I think you'll find the answer to "The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything" is 42

"The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything" is "What's 6 times 9 ?" hence arthur Dent's comment "I always knew there was something fundamentally wrong with the Universe"

I'll shut up now before Bri has another moan about me going "off topic"

Have to agree with Phoenix, the answer is 42, and the Marvin idea is a stonker, but which manufacturer should we use for his massive brain? After all, it was the size of a planet, and this needs further discussion.

It'll probably take better pix anyway.
