Yeah that seems to be the problem, I bought the camera 3 years ago, so any warranty is over, and my wife and I are traveling around North America for the next 5 years on a Travel Expedition of this great country of ours.
So I dont really have a local area to see. Heck, most of the small towns were in, have one general store that services everything from tractors to tanning beds....LOL Not the type of people I want to give my beloved camera to.
You should see the list of things we have for when we find a full service camera shop. They'll think they had their best day yet when we leave.
Thanks for the help.
