Today my 5 yr old dropped our S1050 Samsung camera about 3 feet onto a wooden bridge and now the camera DOES turn on and WILL let me review the pictures I had taken up until that point. However, when attempting to take a picture the picture is out of focus and when I zoom IN it gets clearer but then the camera beeps 2 times and shuts off and closes up. It will let me snap an out of focus picture though. Is there any hope? This camera was expensiveand we've only had it a year. Thanks
