Use the Canon G10 Focus element

Posted in Zen by yoshizen on March 7, 2021

There was a Canon G10 compact camera dropped into the water and broken. In fact, even a camera droped into the water could be saved if its water was drained quickly by shaking hard and dry with a hair dryer. = 50% of them might be saved. But this G10 somebody gave it to me was rusted and had no hope — still some component could be utelised.

The inside of the camera was really THE Canon = incredible degree of heavy complexity still very well built. But in the same time, complex structure meant the component is hard to disassemble.

Yet still, I found a lens suspended by a small stepping motor for focus seems to be utilized as a Single meniscus 39mm focal length Converging lens. (In my way !) I mounted this lens on a 42M ~ 42M 17~31 Focusing helicoid which can give a focus from infinity to 10 cm. (May be good to take picture of the flowers)

The centre of the lens has better quality. (You may say, for what ?)

But at the same time, the lens was producing quite a fuzzy image as well. And that was exactly I’m after.

Not too bad for the lens which costed me nothing. 😀
