Question about Olympus SP-500 UZ Digital Camera
Well, I dropped my Olympus SP-500UZ on a concrete surface. The lens and LCD are fine. It still takes good pictures... BUT...
It is VERY difficult now to engage the shutter release. In other words, pushing the button all the way down instead of taking the picture is training the AF beam and it takes a lot of pushing to get it to take -- sometimes causing the picture to lose focus and/or be taken in a different spot. Is there anything I can do about this other than sending $150 to Olympus?
Sounds like the chassis under the shutter button has somehow distanced itself from the shutter release button, maybe bent away from the button? Its s stretch but that maybe the problem. The button is designed to have 2 contacts in it, the autofocus switch and the shutter release depending on how much you press it, like most cameras
