We sent our camera away $46 for a quote on fixing it. Our camera (very expensive when we bought it) is only about $200 on eBay right now. So if it costs a lot there is no sense fixing it. We're looking at other cameras too....we shall see. If we buy a new one I would really like a Cannon Rebel, Gerald likes a fancy Olympus one. We should ask someone more digital camera inclined.....I've posted to a scrapbooking group to ask because well scrapbookers need good cameras!
