Question about Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera
Although this is a fairly current and fairly expensive digital camera, I must say that the repair of this damage will not be cost justified. Routine inspection for the repair will be between 50 and 75 after shipping. This may be applied to the total estimate, but my experience is that the overall repair will be above 200 dollars. Looking at the replacement with a new identical A590 for $284 with free shipping on Amazon tells me you should not proceed with the repair, it will not be "like new". Repairs typically leave minor tool marks and often make the camera feel a bit "loose" even when done by expert repairmen. If you are not especially attached to this model of camera you may be able to find similar features on a model that is being sold on final clearance, etc. Put searches together on buy.com and amazon.com, you may be surprized what you can buy with the repair money. If you do decide to repair, use Canon authorized local service or ship the camera to Canon after contacting their repair department by phone or website. Remember that most repairs are priced based on SLR style cameras with interchangeable parts and costing 4 to 10 times more -- these cameras can more easily justify the costs of repairs.
