“The repair will be another…4-6 weeks. Could you please ask the customer if he minds waiting for it?”
That is what we were told today when we called our repair centre to check on my camera. Under our own rules I’m entitled to an exchange if a repair goes outside of 28 days, which is on Tuesday coming, but we changed over the camera today as I’m about as likely to find religion as I am to have my 350D back by then. I was going to take another 350D as an exchange, but every camera we’ve left in stock was either ex-display or faulty, so I took a 400D instead. I’m happy with it so far, I took a few shots around town. The first thing I’ve noticed is that the 400D does a much better job than the 350D did on white balance. Even set to tungsten the 350D tended to put an orange tinge on photos, bleh.
