Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera
For some reason, my SD300 keeps going into movie mode, even when the switch is in the photo taking mode. I can turn the camera on, with the switch in the camera position, and it will start up in camera mode, but after a few seconds switch to movie mode (usually just as I am about to get a good picture!) Not sure what to do with it. Whether to give up and buy a new one, or try to get it fixed.
Your mode position switch could just be damaged or the switch on the outside of the camera might not be properly lined up with the switch on the inside. You have to open up the camera body to see what I mean, its not hard, just make sure you take out the battery first.
If you need the mode switch, its pretty easy to take off, I just pulled one off an SD300 to see whats involved and its pretty simple.
As for international shipping... Im starting to do it more, but only via US Priority Mail International which is $12 for a flat rate envelope. I just don't like stuff disappearing during transport and that's why I don't like shipping to the other side of the globe.
If you need the parts please let me know, we will get the shipping figured out.
Good luck from: Darntoothysam com
