My MKIII is a little soft and still under warranty so I thought I would send it in to Canon to be checked and cleaned. Went to UPS today and they wanted $70 to ship it insured! $17 without insurance. Is there a more affordable way to send a camera? Of course I want to insure it, but $70 for shipping is insane.
i just plugged in a box of 15" ^3. 6lbs. insure for $3500. from new york to irvine, ca.
~$47 via ups ground.
i wouldn't insure for $3500 though. probably $2800 will do it, so it should be less. also you won't be shipping new york to ca--there are other canon facilities.
anyway, point is, it doesn't cost $70. you packing this yourself or are you talking about having a 3rd party do this for you?
