Canon camera service agent.

Hi everybody,

Didn't know where to post this so Mods please move this thread if it is in the wrong spot.

I have a Canon iXus 5 that has been the family point and click for a few years now but it's doing some strange things. First I noticed the LCD screen was a bit off colour at the top and had a "band" across the middle. I now noticed that the actual pictures are also off colour at the top. Second it's started to not focus properly. It also takes ages to focus before you can take a picture.

I don't expect anybody here to fix it for me but does anybody know where or who the Canon service agents are in Switzerland. I would like to get the "old girl" fixed up before we go on our next holiday.

Thanks!

You can get it serviced here.

However, if the warranty has run out, then it is going to cost a bit. I cannot imagine the repairs costing less than Fr.100, and with new Ixus cameras now approaching Fr.200... something for you to think about.

That's what worries me. Good excuse to get a new camera though.

Re: Canon camera service agent.

Time for a new one definitely. A digital camera (esp. a point and shoot) that's a "few years old" really won't be worth fixing. It'll cost more than the camera is worth. Plus buying a new one means you'll get all the tech improvements that have happened since you bought the old one.

I agree. Any recommendations? Basically I want something with a reasonable optical zoom (10x or so) and is faily easy to use.
