I have found that the Koday Easyshare CX7430 digital camera which I have been taking photos with is faulty. I did not change any of my regular settings. However, when I used the camera last Friday, most of the photos turned out dark and dull. I had thought that this fault was temporary but it persisted.
I took the camera to a shop yesterday to check if it can be repaired and was told that the LCD was faulty. It would cost about $180 to repair and the repair would take a month. The camera cost less than $500 when I bought it two years ago.
In the end, I decided to get myself a new camera. Hopefully, the new camera would work well for me just like my previous camera.
I am now starting to miss my previous camera...it had served me well...But to repair it at $180 or more, I would rather buy a new camera. I can only secretly hope that I can find a reliable and cheaper way to repair my previous camera.
