Frank, there's only one solution to your problem:
Let the camera rest for 30-40 years and the smell will completely dissapear. Meanwhile, you can air it from time to time (every couple of years). Take it for a walk in the countryside or something. Make it feel comfortable and talk to it sweetly once in a while. They like to feel wanted, they're very delicate creatures, you know. After a while it'll get over the shock of changing owners.
I wish you'll spend lots of happy moments together.
