You can send it in to Canon for repair and they will give you an estimate on how much the repair would cost. From there, you can decide to proceed or have them ship it back to you if you don't want to pay for it.

If you're thinking about getting a new one, your best option is to either repair or wait for new one whenever that may be.

:-( It's ready to be packed off on Monday to see what Canon say.I have had a quick look online to see how things have advanced in the 2.5 years since i bought this and to be honest unless you want a tiny point and shoot or a bridge camera this is still the best of a bunch -- unless people know otherwise, come on convince me ,large sensor ,great lens zoom really well built :)

I can't see it being an expensive repair, sounds like a "crack" in the comms ribbon near the right hand springed hinge. The G!x mk11 has a great sensor to lens combination so I can understand your reluctance to try and find something better.

If you shoot DSLR cameras then the G5X is the P&S you should own :-). Takes awesome pictures, has an EVF, and fits in my glovebox :-).


Jim -- I keep the G5X in the Glove Box just in case!
