My Canon G7 suddenly won't work
Thanks for all the replies. I just did not have the time to reply. As a follow up, I sent it to a local camera repair shop. A few days after, they called and told me that the main circuit is damaged and it is non repairable. It is a shame, as I always took a good care of all my caneras. It did not drop in the water or other drastic accident. It is just died on me.... which slightly caught me by surprise. Now I have to get another P&S and have not come up with a particular model in mind yet. Considering Canon S85, Lumix LX5 or Samsung EX1... but it is just too expensive. Surprisingly, I saw a Sony NEX on sale for almost half the price of a new G12. I was tempted, if not because of the bulging lens.
