Introduction: Re-purpose Your Old Digital Camera for Macro-photography

Picture of Re-purpose Your Old Digital Camera for Macro-photography
I accidently discovered this.  So if you have a broken camera somewhere maybe this could work.

Gently twist and turn the upper lens, while pulling till it comes off.  Voila!  You should
be able to take awesome magnified photography. During the removal of the upper lens, only a previously broken spring
which would not allow the lens to retract, was actually damaged.  No other component was damaged.
