Camera in need of TLC

I have a much-loved and much-used Canon digital SLR camera – Rebel (300D, US model) in need of some attention, or it may be useful for spares. The card slot pins are damaged. We judged it uneconomical for repair and replaced it but if you know better, or can break it for useful spares, it is yours.

You pay postage, up front, by PayPal.

No returns. No refunds.

Kit lens included, unless you want to save postage.

Have original instructions book, neck strap, charger and 2 batteries. Could probably find original packing and various leads etc., if I set my mind to it.

I can’t quite bring myself to junk it and it’s collecting dust.

As far as we can tell, Canon UK will charge £70 before they even open the package to look at it.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

    Is it only the card slot that is damaged?
    Only if you have no other takers, then I’d take it cos I like fixing stuff.

      It’s yours, sweetie. With pleasure. I’ll even pay the postage, seeing as it’s you.

      Yes, it is only the card slot. If you can get a replacement and fit it, all should be well. The sensor could do with a wash and brush up too. It’s had dust on it since the first week I had it – but Photoshop has served to deal with that for me, since I am a wuss about cleaning the sensor.

      Shall I mail you the camera body only – and send you the rest if you are able to fix it?

    Of course I haven’t sent it yet – what do you think I am… organised?

    No, I need first to find all the bits and pack them and then find a round tuit to get me to the post office.

    Sorry, Nevilley – other things have required my attention and I assumed that there would be no rush at your end
