The len of my Canon Powershot S3 is infected with fungus. Other then changing the whole barrel unit, what can be done to it?
Thanks.

Nothing. The optical unit is an entire module which has to be replaced.

Changing an entire barrel unit is gonna cost about $270. I suppose in this case i just gotta live with it. Sigh.

Getting a small dry cabinet just costs about $100. Maybe you might want to use the money to upgrade your camera if you find the fungus has affected the image quality too much.
