Oh dear, I guess there's no more luck that this point and shoot camera of mine will be fixed. It's been with me for the last 3 years and I have used it most of the times when I need a portable camera. My SIL and a friend is even borrowing it from time to time. Now that my p&s is broken, I have no choice but to use my DLSR camera to take shots.
I guess I have to buy a new one if I have saved enough because I really needed a portable cam that I can put easily on my small bag. I hope I can scour for new styles and prices next weekend along with the door hardware that we need for the house. The door knob in the guest room suddenly got broken too so it needs a replacement as well.
