How to dispose of a dead F90x

I have a dead Nikon F90x - beyond economic repair - and don't know what to do with it beyond throwing it in the bin. It was like new but went for a swim in a silty New Forest stream hence the electronics are fried and the mechanics full of fine grit. I presume it might be of use for spare bits. Any ideas? Or do I just bin the thing?

Might be worth putting it on ebay for spares - if it doesn't sell, send it to me if you like ( I'd pay the postage ) and I'll cannibalise it!

Cheers, Jamie.

If you have a local camera shop that does secondhand cameras they will probably buy it from you for spares, if not you could always put it on ebay for spares or repairs.

"If you have a local camera shop"

Weren't those all 'eaten' by Jessops? But yes, that's worth a try. Leif

True - there's not many left! As I say, if you have no joy, let me know at

insurance claim?

attact it to a firework.

give it to some you don't like as a christmas present.

heat it up and freeze it and see what happens (take batteries out first, trust me its not a good idea) multiple times.
