Picked up a used SX1 and the guy had misplaced the remote.
#WC-DC300.

Any ideas where I can pick one up?

Canon's site and Ebay have come up dry.

Still not a bad Craig's List find for $150.00!

Thanks!

-Rob

Sorry I also searched, no luck, you could use a wired usb remote with CHDK, it's still in beta but seems to be working

Just to update the search for a remote.

Called Canon today they'll ship me one for a whopping $9.
Got a couple of hoods for the SX1/20 series for under $10
each and a lenscap for $1.86!!

Quit messin' with Ebay and Amazon.
Give Canon a call first!

Both call centers were stateside too.
Help center in Chesapeake, VA and parts out of NJ.

Ordered parts Tuesday and came today. (Thursday)

Not bad customer service at all!!

Now if I could just get Fuji to fix my
S8000FD that fast I'd be in Heaven!!
(mode dial fell off in the friggin camera bag!)
