Hello!

Thank you for this tutorial.

I just disassembled a Sony DSC P1 (3Mega pixel).. And i would like to ask you if you knew if we may reuse the screen, or the sensor, or other components, in a different set up. Can we access the technical documentations of the inside components of sony's cameras? My intention would be for example to use the sensor with another lens and make another board ? Maybe im just too ambitious..

Thank you very much for your answer.

I have a question in regards to this camera. My wife has had one for years and then all of a sudden it started beeping and said something on the screen about the memory card that was inside. Does this mean the card with all the photos is bad? Maybe installing a new card would make this camera usable again? Thank you.
