6000 rupees is about 120 US$.
That is a typical cost for digital camera repair.
It is less expensive than buying a new camera of that type.
The only place to buy the needed part is from Canon.
My S3IS camera is gone bad. The service center says its Optical unit (Stepper mottor assembly) needs replacement. and given me estimation of 6000 INR.
Is this cost worth? If I want topurchase this Assembly where do I get it?
I am in deep dilema if to get it repaired or not as I loved this camera.
