    Just dropped my camera the other day, i can switch it on, but cant take any pictures or change settings.....its a samsung finepix 8.1, have to travel quite far to the nearest camera repairman, any ideas what it could be and if it would be expensive to fix?
    Otherwise, want to buy a new camera for around 200, 250 euros, 250-300 dollars?
    Any idea, want one that can take pictures quickly and that has good battery life, this samsung eats batteries like theres no tomorow.....
    Had a look but i dont understand the technical terms, and oftentimes they dont say anything about battery life....

    Now you have a reason to get an SLR cam instead :big grin:

    typically a point and shoot isn't worth fixing unless its under warranty. it will wind up costing you almost as much as a replacement if not more to repair them.
