Thanks to Dave for the picture, by the way. And to all of you who suggested the Sale of Goods Act letter to send about my broken Fuji camera so I can start taking my own snaps again. It is covered but – and it’s a big ‘but’ – because it’s more than a certain time since I bought it, the onus is on me to prove that it’s a manufacturing fault and not just general wear and tear. This would involve getting a report done – which, if it did decide it was wear and tear, I’d be liable for.
The report would cost not-much-less than a new camera (we’re not talking top of the range here…) so I think I just have to lump it. You know – it’s not even the money – which is annoying enough – it’s more the whole built-in obsolescence culture we live in. This should be a repairable item – and it is – for exactly three pounds less than I paid for the camera in the first place. Bah!
Sorry – don’t really know where that came from. This started out as a cheery post. And hell – it’s going to be a cheery post.
Happy nutting folks.
