    Any Suggestions?

    What can one do to remedy, or at least significantly improve, a small scratch on the lens
    of a P&S that is a good camera, but not worth the cost of sending it back to the factory,
    especially when it is not covered by warranty?

    Re: Any Suggestions?

    Go to your local optometrist and ask for their recommendations in an eyeglass polishing kit. Make sure they understand you're working on a glass lens. If you go during off-peak hours, you may even get a chance to speak to the optometrist him/herself.

    Of household products, toothpaste is the finest abrasive I can think of- but I'd probably save that as a last resort.

    Is the scratch visible on the downloaded image? If not, I would not worry about it. Small scratches often don't show up in the finished image.
