..on your favorite camera? I've been thinking of the repairs that I have had done to a few of my cameras and a post I read a while ago advising someone not to spend money on a repair but to simply "get another" camera. Some models/types are more the "work horse" type of camera and buyers need to be wary of the condition of the replacement camera due to extreme use, chances that it has been dropped, other cameras are just old and are bound to need shutters un-stuck or film advance levers repaired. I thought, what is the chance that you'd buy another camera only to find some hidden problem with that one? I would almost rather just spend the money to get the original camera repaired rather than take the gamble of finding a good quality replacement. Then there is trying to get a bargain buy from evil bay, which can be ok if your camera is not one that has suddenly sprung new interest and while should be going for $50-100 are being BOUGHT for 2-3X the price. So would there come a time or situation when you would pay 100% or 200% of the price of a camera to have it repaired? Would it have to be a real " last of it's kind" situation or would you pay if the camera had sentimental value to you?
