    Three years ago, I bought the first Canon Ixus I 4mpx camara. Used to
    think that Canon should be good until now. The LCD monitor failed to
    show life images, though it can play captured images. Sent for Canon
    Service Center and informed that it is an optics/lens unit problem.
    Repair costs RM331.00

    I did not use the camera frequently. Less than 1x per week. The
    broke down so fast, considering the actual usage. So disappointed.
    Wondering if u face similar quality issue with Canon.....

    I understand three years is a long time, long enough buy a new camera.
    Just not sure I should stick with Canon....

    My Canon FX has been to a repair shop only twice since it was built in 1966.
    And both times were for a CLA (clean, libe, adjust). It has had 1000's of
    shots on it's shutter.

    Got a Canon S60 2Mpx in Jan 2004 - sensor crapped out in about 10 months.

    About 6 months after that, I saw an article where Sony had a bunch of
    bad sensors that affected Canon among other manufacturers. Took it in to
    my local camera store and the repair guy contacted Canon, who repaired
    it at no charge.

    It's one of two cameras I keep in the car all the time (both inexpensive
    so I won't feel so bad if someone breaks in and steals them) and it's
    still working fine.

    That's 4 years minus the 6 months or so between the time it died and the
    time it was repaired.

    What's RM331.00 translate to in US Dollars?
