Thread: Service Camera

  1. #1

    Smile Service Camera

    Thinking of sending my canon for servicing, though nothing wrong with it.

    Wondering, how often do you guys service your camera?

    1 year, 2 year??

    and what do they do when you send for servicing

    any idea how much they charge??

    Send all for servicing during ghost month and CNY, that's the only period that cameras, lenses and flashes are not in use for more than 7 days.
