Got my S80 last week, and ordered two 1 GB cards. I got the Ultra II cards since thats all I've ever used. Thanks for the link WW. Hope to get it by next weekend.

59.95 for 1 GB card! Wow. I spent over $200 for mine just a year ago. :eek:

Update on my cameras:

Got quotes from Canon on repairs.


I fell on the slopes and broke the LCD lens on my first S80 that I bought in Nov ($139 + $8 shipping to repair). #-o

The first S70 that I got in Apr went for a swim in Aug, #-o and worked for a little while after drying out (had to hold the sliding door open). About a month later it quit working ($119 + $8 shipping to repair)


Bought my second S80 in Jan 2006. This one will be strictly for hiking. Waiting for the waterproof camera case now. Should be here next week.

The new S70 that I got in Sept got wet on a powder day #-o and the sliding door wouldn't stay open (have to hold it open). That's what I'm using on the slopes now. As soon as I get the (old) repaired S70 back, I will send this one in for repair ($119 + $8 shipping to repair)

When I get these fixed, we'll have 4 cameras!

$139 for a new lense is a lot better than $500 for a new camera. I just thought that it would be more expensive to replace the LCD screen.

Snow Nymph, just letting you know in advance... if you ever ask to borrow my camera, the answer is "no". :)

Its been a bad year for me with cameras. :tear: Hopefully I won't have to buy another one for a few years. I'm also getting an LCD screen protector.

That's what I thought too, WD. So the cost to repair all 3 is still less than buying a new camera. :rolleyes: SnowDude will be using one of the cameras so we're set for awhile. [-o<

I'm sending my old S80 in for repair :( The door/lens won't shut, and makes a noise like the motor is stuck. Its under warranty since I just got it repaired. I'll send in the other S70 at the same time. Never got around to sending it in.
