Re: S100 after 2nd repair

That is very strange Gail, that it took two tries like that. I thought that when the lens went they would replace the entire lens assembly, which would include the sensor. They must have jiggled something loose in the rest of the camera the first time around. Anyway, I'm so glad that it is back to its normal, healthy self and you can continue to enjoy it and make great pictures.

When Canon returned my repaired s100 following the lens problem, I felt there was something wrong with the camera. I just couldn't put my finger on it.

Some images were slower to write to the memory card than I remembered and there were more blurred images than I ever had before. I posted a number of photos and discussed it in some threads in this forum. I started believing it was user error. I had been using the S90 for six weeks, and thought maybe I just forgot about the feel of the S100.

About a week and a half later, the LCD went, so back the camera went to Canon for a second repair.

I received my S100 last evening and have taken a number of test photos, all to my satisfaction. I immediately could feel that the camera was peppy like I had indeed remembered it.

So all appears well the second-time around. I hope it stays that way.

In case anyone is wondering, I checked the serial number. Canon did not replace the camera. The one I sent them twice is the once I got back.
