The Null Device

Good news, bad news

The good news is: I've managed to get the laptop I'm using to read my CompactFlash cards. (For some reason, only the second PCMCIA slot works.)

The bad news is: my camera appears to be broken. I.e., the mode switch (the one that goes between camera, off and playback modes) seems to be stuck permanently in camera mode; rotating it has no effect. Anyone know of a good, quick and reasonably priced camera repair place in London?

nobody knows of a cheap and decent camera repair shop, because such things don't exist; go to a big chain, like Jessop's, they seem to kno' they stuff.

I went to the Ealing Jessops and they offered to send it in for repairs, with a turnaround time of 7-10 days. Given that in 7-10 days I will probably be travelling around elsewhere, that wasn't an option. So I went to a repair place near Tottenham Court Rd., who said they'll fix it in a day or two if it's something simple. (Which it hopefully is; given that it doesn't rattle when I shake it, it probably just needs some WD-40 in the right place or something. Or so I hope.)

Gods willing, I'll have it back for the Ninetynine gig.
