I Paid a lot for the Canon Ixus Z70 digital camera back in 1998. I take good care of my cameras, so I expect them to work for more than 3 years. My other cameras work year after year.

The Canon Ixus Z70 is a great APS camera: light, small easy to use and with great features like panoramic views and the zoom is good.

I took it back to where I bought it and was told it was uneconomical to repair at approximately £80 (it cost me £220) when a new one could be £165. I am now left with an expensive silver box. Oh...
