2 days into once in a lifetime trip, started when i changed the picture quality, can't take a picture and no display or menu, but can focus and flash pops up etc. - not wet, not damp, not bumped or dropped - just stuffed. Thanks Canon - not a single photo of the entire trip just heavy lump of rubbish to carry back home. Tried changing battery, changing memory card, recharging battery, changing lens - nothing works.
Alright, so well I just got off information from canon support, and they said to hard restart (1. take out batt/memory card 2. turn the camera to on. leave for 20 seconds 3. press shutter button 6 times 4. let sit for 30 minutes) Then to use it after those 30 minutes. If it doesn't work, just send it into canon.

The 600D is better suited for filming, with it's folding screen. It is also a little bigger, which I personally prefer. Drawback is that the 600D has the digic4 image processor dompared to the new digic5 in the 100D. Makes very little difference for even advanced photographers. It gives the 100D a higher framerate for filming, so it kind of depends what you want to do with it. Don't let Megapixel numbers fool you: a second hand 60D is a better built camera. (all 100-series are all plastic and have lower quality knobs than any 10-series, which are magnesium and better build quality)
The best way to transfer pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa. Organize edit and share your photos
Hard to tell, but I'd give a slight advantage to the Canon 1000D over the Nikon D60 (closest competitor) for 2 main reasons. The Canon has liveview which the D60 lacks and the Canon is largely backwards compatible with older Canon and third party lenses - so you can get good quality older lenses which will work perfectly with the 1000D. With Nikon on the other hand you need to either buy lenses with internal autofocus motors or you'll be stuck with only manual focus.
Besides that there's not really much difference, since both cameras produce great images and are very similar in features handling and price etc. To sum it all up - I suggest you go with the Canon.
Well, I'm not sure what you expected them to do...send someone to Asia to fix your camera? They responded the only way they could. They didn't ruin your trip...you could have bought a cheap throwaway digital camera and enjoyed the trip. Now you need to send it in for repairs under the warranty.
A 32mb card isn't very big. If your camera takes pictures larger than 6mps, the card will fill up fast. Why not buy a larger card? You can set the picture quality to a lower setting in the menu of the camera, but if you capture that once in a lifetime shot and you want to print an enlargement, the quality will suffer. My advice...shoot in the highest quality and use a big card.
Are you trying to use the flash when you are having the problem? Were you taking a lot of pictures with flash when the problem started? Rapid pictures with flash can melt the flash and capacitors in the camera. Also, a single drop of water rolling around inside the camera in the right place can do things like that. You can try taking pictures in bright sunlight so the camera will not try to use the flash and see if it will work normally, If it does than something is probably fried in the flash system. Bad thing is that if you smelled smoke something is most likely already fried and will have to be repaired by canon. Canons quality has been going down hill for several years now and they have a lot of quality problems. If the camera has been used very little, has never been abused, dropped or wet and not far out of warranty, try using google to see if this is a common problem and call canon and try to get them to repair it for free. If all else fails threaten to replace it with a Nikon assume pay to have barely used camera fixed.
Some one might have messed up with your camera.
some one might have changed the resolution, aperture, manual focus etc of the camera.
Try setting them according to your needs or try resetting the camera.
