|In the workshop: my Canon powershot G12|
This was two months ago and yesterday, the camera died on me.
Seems that there were some tell-tale signs. One of it was its inability to focus at long zoom length.
When the camera failed to function yesterday, I knew that it was going to go kaputt.
Lucky for me, my powershot G10 is still there to back things up.
I sent the camera to Canon's service centre this morning and was told that it would take five to seven working days to get it back.
For a two-month old top-of-the line point-and-shoot camera, it was really disappointing to learn that it was so fragile.
