    Disassembling LK-7900

    Hi, Well I have done a lot of experiments, but I am not convinced that I have improved the distant focus. To understand this you have to remember your old photographic skills, before there were auto focus point'n'shoot cameras. Have a read of this:-...

    Disassembling LK-7900

    Hi, Since my LK7900 is pretty much useless with its bad focus, I thought I would see if I could fix it. Taking the cam apart is very easy, once the magic incantation is known! I am not going to post the method, until I am confident that it will work again after reassembly. I wish I had...
