    Default Need some advice in regards to my camera repair cost

    Hey everyone

    Few days ago, my point and shoot Fujifilm FX100fd was sent to Fujifilm for repair. Apparently, the shutter button dropped off (due to knock or something, I not very sure cause when I took it out from my bag, it ended up like that). No parts were missing.

    Today Fujifilm got back to me and told me the repair cost is $267 -.-"

    To me, I think it is ridiculous that it cost nearly 300 bucks to put back a shutter button. Do you guys think its worth it? Or is there any shops I can try my luck at?

    that's their way of telling you to buy a new one. unfortunately electronics goods are not made to be repaired nowadays, its just not worth it anymore. I believe this is not just replacing the buttons, the whole assy might come as one piece, so you might have to replace it as a whole rather then just the button.....bottom line...get a new one

    Yes, Just go to Sim Lim Tower for parts.
    You can use a substitute for the shutter button.
