Whatcha got, what's wrong with it, and what is your "no fuckin' way" price?
It's a Sony. Entry level as far as DSLRs are concerned. I think the mirrors or what- have-you inside have got "out of whack". Needs a good clean, too.
Did you try hitting it with a hammer? :dunno:

That was the first thing I tried, of course. Then I tried spraying WD40 all over it but that didn't help either. As a last resort I took it the Wise Woman who filled it with still warm chicken entrails and EVEN that didn't work.

I usually go with duct tape before chicken entrails, but I'm not judging, mind you.

Ah. Well, I hear horse hooves, when boiled, make a serviceable adhesive...if you've got an old nag around that's eating more than it produces...

Boohoo. My telephoto lens will cost £120 to repair and it will cost £180 to replace the image stabilisation unit in my camera. Harrumph.

I recommend that you take up finger painting. Helluva lot cheaper.

A facebook thingy I read the other night:

A famous photographer was invited to dinner by a famous socialite in New York. When he arrived, he was met by the host. "I really admire your work, you must have a fantastic camera!' The photographer did not reply. After dinner, he said: "The food was wonderful. You really must have a terrific stove." :smoke:
