Interesting Camera Failure vs Price & Brand

Buy expensive digital camera, you get less risk to get it repair over cost

depend on brand

Not surprise, have you heard the phrase "You get what you pay for"

That is why I paid higher end cameras. I have done comparing different cameras, and the cheaper one is stinky!

I don't pay for high-end ones.

Why?

I do a lot of outdoors activities that would get the camera full of sand and dust. Not to mention the lenses would get scratched, even if I tried my best to take care of them.

I try to make it once a week if I can.

The last time I ran down a dusty hill, scratching my glasses, pots, getting dirt and dust in ALL of my bags, clothes, and go into the protective camera bag, was the day I decided that DSLR and high-end point-and-shoot shouldn't be something to venture after.

Ah interesting. I used to have a Panasonic digital camera, didn't know it had the lowest failure/malfuction rates. I currently have a cheap Pentax digital camera, it has problem with lens cover not opening all the way when I turn it on. It has a higher failure rate anyway.

I'm pretty glad to own DSLR Canon, it's fair expensive one and I had to take really good care of it. I guess it give a stick in my head that I don't want to lose or harm anything to mine.

ha ha my bro in law got a flat sony digital camera for free that he found it at some where. Good enough he accidentally dropped it in the lake within 8 months later. sad karma huh?

I usually get camera that prices was in between the low price and high price. I had it for three years and my son dropped it recently. It wasn't working. Ahh It's time for me to buy new one soon.

I got a Canon EOS 20D for $800 (big discount employee. Without discount employee should be around $1600) and zero problem for six years. Even I take a picture at outside thru heavy snow and heavy rain. I love it and don't plan to buy another DSLR.
