lol, lefse. i guess i'm a tinkerer. my dad had several watches that were expertly disassembled, and partially reassembled.
and - ahem, "honesty wanted to fix it?"...
i did get it working again, except the optics are out of focus from when it was dropped.
i just bought a new camera that takes excellent shots. a point and shoot that does fully atoumatic to fully manual. the sub-compact cameras, like the one i'm fixing, are too small for my hands. i didn't want or need a big slr, so i went for the canon powershot A720. it's an 8 megapixel camera with a 6x optical zoom.
the canon powershot A650 also got great reviews, at 12 megapixels (for $100 more), and i has a swivelling lcd display. i've found, using the swivel feature on my video camera, that kids love to pose for pictures when they can see themselves in the display.
