Broke camera cable when replacing DC board

I followed the guide for replacing the DC magsafe board (MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2012 MagSafe DC-In Board Replacement) and it worked. However, I botched step 9 and pulled the camera cable out of its metal connector.

Is there a guide or part for replacing the camera cable?

I'd seek professional help. Replacing the cable is a much more complex task than the DC-in board, and you had problems with that DIY repair. A professional may be able to reconnect/replace the broken connector, eliminating the extensive chore of replacing the cables.

Soldering computer components is a very advanced DIY skill requiring special tools, solder and lots & lots of practice.
