The Internet fixed my sticky Nikon D50!

There are lots of good reasons for pensioning off my old Nikon D50. There’s the 6-megapixel CCD, for example, the tiny low-res screen on the back, the lack of any kind of video and a viewfinder barely larger than keyhole. (Not that I spend a lot of time looking through keyholes.)

But the thing that finally did it was the sticky grip! I bemoaned my old camera’s fate in my sticky Nikon D50 news story last week. But it’s not just Nikon DSLRs – lots of products with textured rubberised surfaces go horribly sticky over time. Which is what I found out from scores of helpful DCW readers who emailed in with their ingenious solutions for fixing everything from sticky umbrella handles to tacky hi-fi dials.
