Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera
Hi i bashed theside of the lens and now i get some blured images and lens error on zoom.is it expensive to replace lens and is it straight forward?
When replacing a lens, there is some optical and electronic calibration required.
In your situation, if there is any part of the camera case that was knocked out of shape or slightly bent, then for sure the repair will be too expensive.
A bend or change of a few thousandths of an inch of the case cannot be seen by eye. But with the precision and magnification of the lens, any slight misalignmenet would be visable in the photos.
You should call Canon just to know the cost of servicing the camera. I am sure it will be more than 50% of the cost of a new one.
