E-PL5 heal yourself

Last week I reported that I would be taking my E-PL5 on holiday to Switzerland later in August as a backup to my E-M1 that had a brief funny turn two weeks ago. As a dropped my E-PL5 last month when down Cardiff Bay (sensor looked slightly offset and IS indicator flashing on screen but camera still worked), I was wondering if that would be a good idea.
Used the E-PL5 for some Ebay work last night and the sensor has realigned itself and the IS indicator has stopped flashing.
So my E-PL5 has healed itself. Still has a bit of a dent in the corner underneath but I am happier than I was.

You could always go the whole hog and distress the body to make it look like it's seen a lot of action.

Re: E-PL5 heal yourself

I once met someone that did fake work for a very reputable gun seller in London. If a case was missing for an antique pistol, he would supply an authentic looking replacement that the seller would pass off as original. He would make it looking like new, then take it outside and throw pebbles at it to 'distress' it. He would then use a blowtorch to quickly flame the baize interior, which would take the pile mainly off the corners of the divisions, making the baize look worn. He had the instructions printed on newspaper and leave them in the sun to quickly yellow. The overall effect was very convincing and I'm sure most customers were taken in - especially given the shop's reputation.

You could advertise that on eBay as Jackson Pollock's Canon!
