    Excuse me if this is the wrong place to post this

    I've got some really nice cameras that have dead circuitry, well in a sense where the sensor itself is fine but the circuitry that runs the sensor and other parts is not functioning. I don't know if it is possible to salvage these sensors and use them somehow? I just have an urge to fix them or use them somehow. I have three broken cameras that I know of, one is 3mpg does video and pictures, an hd 5mgp camera with digital zooming and a Lumix 8.1mgp camera I really liked this camera for the quality and the zooming to take super clear nice close up shots on say an insect or a microchip.

    Bottom line is I'm wondering if you can somehow use them, now that I think about it, without the circuits doing there job, it would not be possible to run the sensor and actually get a photo, I don't know...

    anybody have input? I just don't really want to waste...
    I'm a pack rat I guess keep it till I know what to do with it..

    Probably cost more to get them fixed than to buy something newere and better.
    Keep Shooting!

    Three bad cameras? You're having a run of bad luck with them, but I guess it depends on the brand - Nikon, Canon etc are known for being pretty durable, where some of the really off brands is anyone's guess.

    There's a camera repair store near my place here in San Diego and I donated a broken medium format film camera to them since I found a replacement on eBay for cheap. You may want to go the same route.

    Good luck with the next one. Don't stop shootin'
