    Repairing a Canon 1000D

    I just broke my camera. Stupid stupid of me.

    It is just a little spring on the side of the mirror that has come off (still attached but not springing). The camera works still but the part is loose.

    I am after advice about what to do. It isn't a very expensive camera and it feels silly to spend hundreds of dollars to repair it. Gah.

    I switched my camera off auto in November 2012, and I have been busy reading and learning and practicing ever since.
    My kit is basic: Canon 1000D (two kit lenses) + 50mm f/1.8 + a tripod/monopod + Lightroom4

    Camera House In Hunter St. Newcastle do repairs. A phone call may give an idea if cost makes repairs worthwhile.

    I think you'll find they send repairs to sydney they sent my 7D there so a shipping cost to start with + repairs
