Disposable Sony Camera

I am starting to think that all digital cameras should be
disposable Sony Camera

I am having trouble getting a half year out of a digital camera, the new Cyber-Shot I purchased for around 200 Dollars U.S. is already having a serious problem. The lens is not opening correctly and reading a little it looks like a common problem.

I take hundreds of photos and to pay the 500-700 some people pay it to me absurb, better to have a camera that is cheap, then buy a new one, then to have an expensive one and buy a new one, it seems never cost effective to have a camera fixed. I am hoping to find a page that says how to self repair or fix myself this problem.

By the way, my camera is not a disposable camera, however it may as well be, good for three months then throw away and buy a new one. However I think they are all about the same, not made to be used, and built in obsolete.

I swear by Olympus cameras. I have owned three and I got lots of good use out of them. I currently have a D-580 and it works well. The last two also worked well and never any problems. I sold them on ebay to upgrade to my newer one for better quality photos and longer battery life. Maybe you should try one?


I think this camers is about 250 U.S. Dollars. The Olympus D-580

This is the same price range as the one that broke. I will give it a try, or consider, the cost of chip is next problem.

Note to me a tip without a price is missing the essence, most people unfortunaly recommend something that is five time the cost. I almost never go look at what people recommend because a great value is

Benefits PLUS cost = Value
