Camera was dropped with lense out - Digital Cameras


Answers :

Hi am really sorry to have to agree that it will probably cost you more to repair the camera than to replace it. I would look for good sales, of which there are many this time of year and find a replacement, and yes they do all come with a wriststrap. Also, you will want ot have little padded case to keep it in, preferably one with a strap that goes around your neck. I actually replace the wrist strap with a strap long enough to go around my neck, put both case strap and the camera strap around my neck and can take the camera in or out as I need it. Also you can purchase a small digital tripod for about $20.00 that you can leave small and put the camera on it and brace it against your chest. It works great to get a good photo on short notice. Just some photogs tricks. Good luck to you.
These cameras are much too fragile to survive a drop, using the wrist strap is an absolute necessity.
