I bought a new canon 50d in july and used it through the summer sporadically in preparation for an overseas trip. Periodically got an error 30 message on the LCD but always ok after turning camera on/off. In India for 3 weeks in Oct. Got the error 30 screen 4-5 days a day during heavy shooting. Internet says error 30 is shutter problem. Does camera store (Ritz Camera in DC) fix this? Camera is barely 4 months old. What should I do? Please keep explanations simple since I am technology challenged

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen. I can turn it off and on and the lens will always open but closes as soon as it has opened with the lens error on the screen. The shutter opens but closes also, like the lens. Can this be fixed? It was a gift so I don't have the bill of sale but I still have the orig
