Question about Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera
I dropped my first digital camera a Canon A75 on my toe. I love this camera it is a great little camera. After I dropped my wonderful camera the lens would not close all the way. I tried to take it apart but was not able to get all the way to the lens. I have been shocked a couple of times but I know that if someone could tell how to get it apart I could if you will have mercy then I have purchased a new A630 that is also great but I miss my first love so if you can help ...Thank you!. I love this camera.
