Introduction
This guide is directly applicable only to this one specific model, nevertheless, other Canon compact camera lenses are likely to follow similar principles of operation and methods of construction.
You will require a fair amount of patience as reassembly is a little tricky. Note that it is very easy to get fingermarks or dust on the optical components but much harder to completely remove them. Particularly on the focussing lens and the image sensor, any contamination will have a significant or major effect on image quality.
You will need a small cross-head screwdriverand flat screwdrivers and a small craft knife. Additionally, a pair of fine tweezers will be helpful, and cocktail sticks are useful for releasing ribbon cables from their sockets. If you need to clean the optical components you will need some isopropyl alcohol and non-linting cotton swabs or lint-free cloths. Unless your eyes can focus at distances less than 10cm a magnifying glass or jeweller's eye loupe will be helpful.
