My sincere apologies for not visiting for a while. Unfortunately I have learnt the hard way that you should ALWAYS wear your neck strap when using your camera. I was standing on a chair, taking a photo of my daughters birthday cake, when I dropped my camera onto our ceramic tiles. I was devastated as I had only had it for a few months. Anyway, the body seems fine (650D) but the (EFS 55-250mm IS II) was broken where it attaches to the camera (sorry, don't know technical term). Anyway, I have saved up and am waiting for my replacement , but have not had the body checked.
Do you think it necessary for me to take the camera in to be looked at? I had taken about 3 or 4 photos with the camera immediately after I had dropped it, (before I realised that the section joining the to the body had been chipped) and the photos seemed fine. However I haven't been sure whether I could do more damage if I kept using it? There is no 'rattle of possible loose bits' from the body and it still seems to be functioning fine.
Really appreciate the advice,
