Yesterday, we went for a drive to an old town in the western Japan. After we enjoyed sightseeing and walking a lot, I dropped my camera on the ground by mistake, and the zooming mechanism of it crashed. I got depressed because it like it very much. According to OLYMPUS, they started to offer flat-rate charging system to repair their compact digital cameras, and the cost to fix mine will be JPY 12,600 plus shipping. I'm wondering if I should replace it to a new one, Olympus E-420, 620 or one of the PEN cameras. I'm also intrested in Richo CX4 and GXR.
This was the last shot image I took using the broken camera.
