I have a broken 350D, not sure how it happened, but I have a little tiny spring in my hand, a camera that now has something rattling away inside it, and a mirror that no longer springs back.
I have the option of taking it to a local repair shop and having it fixed, anywhere between £80 to £110 is the estimate.
But, I am struggling to justify fixing it as I cannot get it to work with my new laptop, which is using Windows 7 64bit. I have tried patches, downloads, and other fixes, but it does not work at all. I also do not have a port for the CF.
So, am I just as well to consider buying a new Canon? My options are the 550 or the 1100.
What do you think?
