Camera Hospital

Finally I got my into to get that error checked out. ( would have sent it in for me but there is a $50 refundable up front fee)

I held some vain hope that  would say "OH, an E18 error?  And you *didn't* drop your camera? We'll fix it for free. No… we'll just upgrade you for free to an S5." (Yes, I know I live in a fantasy world)

But really, all I'm hoping for is more responsiveness than got! (Check out her note Canon = Lies & Thievery)

far, it's taken them 3 days to email me the estimate along with the
"Repair ___ Return ___ Discard" form, quoting a standardized estimate
for the E18… one would think they could have just had me approve the
repair when I was there… but no.

Flat fee to fix an E18, dropped or not? $210. 
Estimate to camera return? 3 weeks.

Fingers crossed that I'll be back to 

taking rocking again soon! And hopefully the fix will last long enough for me to upgrade to the S5.
