The other night, my friend Mike lamented that his digital camera (a Canon SD450) stopped working after a couple years and a couple too many trips to the beach. He knows I like taking stuff apart, and asked if I’d be interested in trying to fix it. Of course! This afternoon, we took the thing apart down to the gears, and removed about a quarter teaspoon of sand out of the innards. After a thorough cleaning, we managed to get it back together (with only one superfluous part left over) and working!
