Last year i acquired a broken Canon G7 for free. The owner stated that the LCD screen was stuffed and that the rest of the camera was working fine. I never got around to mucking about with it but the idea came to me yesterday that it is actually a pretty decent point and shoot. More decent than what i am using anyways. So, a quick search on ebay found me some LCD screens for $35 and i set about trying to bring it back to life. I dug around on the ever useful interweb and found a perfectly concise images that would aid in taking the G7 apart.
Firstly though i ordered a battery charger just to check if the camera is actually working ($8 shipped). Once that is tested i will order the new LCD screen and transplant it. Hopefully everything will work out and i will report back later!
