I messed up my travel packing, and I now need to buy a charger for a Canon S95 camera battery in St. Petersburg, Russia. Is there any place where I could get one for a reasonable price? I'm staying downtown.

The (almost) indestructable camera

My camera fell into a lake. Yikes! Took it home, let it dry in a bowl of brown rice and now it turns on (Yeah!) but the screen shows the view as a monotone blob of something. Help! [more inside]

Help me find a service that hacks electronics!

Does anyone know of a service that creates or modifies custom electronics? For instance, I review a lot of concerts for various web sites and would love to have something like a decent quality 0 lux video cam w/ sound that's housed in a cell phone. Don't need any phone functions, just something inconspicuous to film small parts of the show for the review. Something that looks like a phone but is really a good low light video cam. Any suggestions?

Can my Canon Powershot A510 be Hacked?

My camera's video recording option is limited to 30 seconds which I think was done to prevent people from using it as a video camera and therefore drive sales for other products. I think that sucks. I should be able to record to my heart's content Does anyone savvy know of any way to hack the software/firmware to remove the 30 second limit?

What camera or gadget can I get for $400?

My parents recently gave me $400 as a present, with the express condition that I use it to buy something (which means I can't save or invest it). Originally, they were going to get me an iPod, but I already have one. I'm thinking about a digital camera, so my question is: Does anyone have any suggestions for a good camera, or perhaps some other neat electronic gadget, in this price range?
