S3 IS "raw" (quite a few pictures, probably not very dial-up friendly)

Raw as in: "not being in polished, finished, or processed form."

The zoom mechanism had been getting steadily louder, then making the camera noticeably shake, and finally giving E14 errors on start-up, so I figured I'd take it apart and see if I could fix it (the warranty was long expired.) After several cycles of disassembly, lubrication, and reassembly I decided it was a lost cause and disassembled it completely.

First we've got the all the parts scattered about:

Next is the CCD:

Here's the image stabilizer and the angular accelerometers:
