In today's market the most common devices that we see here are obviously smartphones, and customers can be understandably quite upset that they have damaged there's, due to the value of the newer models, and the amount of money that people spend on them. Another category of customers we have here are photographers, and if you've ever broken a phone and thought your luck was bad, consider these customers, or more specifically, the owner of the lens pictured above.
This damaged Canon 60mm lens was dropped into water and damaged, along with the Canon 5D is was attached to, resulting in some serious damage for the whole assembly. The water damaged lens lost the ability to focus, and the 5D wouldn't power on. Once the customer sent the damaged lens and camera to us, one of our technicians set to work immediately in repaing the broken Canon 5D and 60mm lens.
When the water had come into contact with the Canon 5D, it had caused a short circuit on the board of the camera, which required our technicians to perform some component level repairs to get the device back up and running. With the damaged Canon 60mm lens, the water had caused the auto focus motor to stop working, and also caused some stiffness and sticking of the lens barrel, making it almost impossible to rotate the Canon lens focus ring by hand.
Thankfully, we were able to completely repair both, and have this Canon 5D back up and running, along with the water damaged Canon 60mm lens.
