Hello, Just got back from Hawaii and took my Lumix Ts2 camera snorkeling every day. The first few days I had no problems, but the last half of my vacation, condensation covered the lens, and my pictures look like I'm shooting through a fog. The fog would dissippate after 45 minutes or so in the sun, but I missed many moments I would have liked to capture. The next day, I would go out and have the same problem. I worry that moisture is trapped inside the camera around the lens and no way to g

Hi experts. My new Canon powershot SX20is has a squeaking noise as the autofocus operates. This is picked up by the microphone ond is very prominent on video playback. The same squeak can also be heard when camera is slowly rotated forward to back. As this squeak was present from new, I returned camera to seller who claimed there were skuff marks on the lens hood and therefore the lens had been stressed, so was not covered under warranty. Does their explanation seem reasonable ? Would be m

I bought a Polaroid i733 Digital Camera for my daughter in March, 2007. A couple of weeks ago when she went to change the batteries, the lens got stuck half way out. Now it won't work. By the looks of things on line, it looks like this is an inherant problem with this model. Is it still covered under warranty? If not, any idea what the approximate cost to fix it would be?
