I'm upgrading from my 450D to a 7D using the Loyalty Program. A friend donated an old powershot he hasn't used in years to my cause, but it's not broken, and he didn't give me a battery. So if the camera were somehow to make its way into a bucket of water, I have no way of knowing if it's really broken. Suggestions?
They didn't even ask me what was wrong with my camera. They just asked for the model and serial number. I doubt they check since they recycle the cameras.
