Then ask for a 1-to-1 exchange @ Oly Sg...make a helluva noise if they don't...show them receipt that the DC is less than 1 week old..but it died a natural death...

I went down to Oly service centre yesterday.

The lady there say cannot exchange as they do not have stock of C-1. I make 'noise' that I need it urgently and I just bought it 2 days ago!!


So she promise to rectify it by lunchtime (I was there at 9.30am).


I went back at 11.30am. Camera serviced! They say it is a small problem (fuse blown).

:)

Now will carry this camera with me everyday. I bought this to replace my Mju-II and save film money.

Well, I choose Oly C-1 over fujifilm A101as I have confident Oly will provide good customer service.

Good to hear that you've got your camera serviced. Olympus customer service is pretty good...
