Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
I went camping a few weeks ago and it got pretty cold at night and there was dew in the morning. My lens won't focus now, my brother said there is probably moisture in the lens. It seems like a simple problem, I really don't want to spend $100-$150 to get it fixed or get a new camera. Can anyone help???
If you can get a hold of some dry nitrogen and setup a vacuum bottle of some sort using the food vacuum storage bag machine. Place the camera in the bottle. Seal the bottle with a top that has a dual vent idea where they both have a valve shutoff . One to the vacuum one piping in the nitrogen. Nitrogen is a no lethal non flameable drying agent they use in Binoculars to prevent fogging of the inside lenses.. Shut the Nitrogen side gas off. too. Open the vacuum side and pump down as much as possible there will be a max I do believe minus 25 foot pound per cubic inch of Mercury! Nature of this beast. Now shut that valve the camera is now vacuum packed. Turning on the Nitrogen open that port to the vacuum slowly not to make a sudden pressure change and let in all the Nitrogen it will take without blowing off the cap! If it is a pickle jar the top will pop like opening a sealed jar of pickles. .
Any moisture the nitrogen touches will be removes. This can be done if the camera's parts are not air tight. If they are then this problem would never had happened...
Simple and a cost of a very small jar of compressed Nitrogen is way less than 40 dollars. The vacuum machine should be a household item since you can afford a digital camera because you do preserve food and leftovers in savers bags
