And why I ask folk to not overinvest.
I bought a Panasonic DMC-ZS3 Lumix digital camera in December 2009 for $300. The Camera in December 2011 displays wavy lines on the CCD device less than 2 years old. Panasonic wants $180 to repair or actually swap out the camera the phone tech said that the CCD is starting to go bad. The camera is a high quality HD camera that 12X zoom and shoots HD movies. The $180 charge is pretty steep considering the CCD will most likely go bad again. I highly recommend not spending to much on a digital camera its like throwing away money every 1-2 years. Does anyone else have this problem?
