Hey.. Today after taking a picture i dropped my exlim ex-z3 ... I know its not the kind of cameras you guy are usually used to dealing with, but I wanted to know if you have any tips.. I can see that the lense is like bent to the fight now, so therefore It can't go back into the camera, it just makes a really loud clicking noise.. I think maybe if I open the camera up maybe I can fix the lens. Do you think this is fixable? Thanks for your help guys!!

Those little guys are tricky! I dropped some one else's Nikon Coolpix 3100 and I just gave up and bought a new one.

Hope you get it fixed! How do those photos come out for aviation related photos.

Thanks again.

oh no I wouldn't dare to use that camera for any serious photogrophy.. Way to much noise and halos and its just not a good camera... I just like it because its the size of a credit card but stil 3.2mp and 3x optical zoom. I like it because I can bring it to parties and stuff w/o carrying around a big thing.. Unfourtanatley thats how it ended up breaking.. so I will know for now on no more cameras at parties lol.

hey.. i brought it to a camera place, and they said they couldn't fix it because the lens barrel was cracked... When I looked at the camera closer I could tell that they never actually opened it up... So i figured i'd just give up on fixing it and move on and get one better..
