Try an independent repairer, there are a few advertised in the back of Practical Photography, You will get the price nearer to 50 quid.
Yep.. you might want to look around other indie repairers, Stu. I had a similar problem. Turns out it would have cost me more just to repair than even buy a better lens, which i ended up doing...
Not a rip off Stuart but a fact of commercial life.
Jessops aren't a charity and cannot charge you less just because your camera is not worth the money and equally they can't offer more on a trade in just because they feel sorry for you.
They dont build em like they used to, how long will digitals perform?
What on earth do you mean by that Bill.
Digtal is a technology not a "make" or "construction type" so in itself the statement is meaningless
When Jessops take in a repair, apparently they send them to an outside repair company and simply put 40% on the bill. So cut out the middle man.
Jessops have never been know for cheapness when selling, only when buying, but they do offer good backup. The offered me 40 for my E10 that I later sold for 400
I certainly wouldn't go to my local Jessops for any advice. Half the people employed there look down their noses at you if you don't understand the jargon and the other half haven't got a clue what they are talking about. Having said that they do develop good photos, although they don't do 6X4 'in house' any more. You have to get the bigger (more expensive) 7x5 if you don't want your film put into the hands of a delivery driver and Kodak! Ho hum!
40.00 for am E-10.. I'll have one of those
Jessops still do 6x4 in house it is just some stores have more work coming in than the lab has production time available so 6x4 is sent to Kodak to keep it all running.
As for only being offered 40 for an E10 it maust have been knackerd as the current trade in value is 250 to 290 depending on condition. Most people also forget that when a second hand camera is traded in at Jessops there has to be a mark up to make a profit and if the camera takes weeks to sell due to the constant flow of new models it will end up being sold for less than purchased for. Also Jessops give a 12month warranty on used equipment which most others give only 3 or at best 6 months.
The E10 was in perfect working order, it was replaced in its box with all cabling and accessories. Do you think someone would pay 400 for a camera that was knackered?
thanks for the replys ill look about but it made a bit of a stir stuart
put it this way
i bought a sony f717 last week from jessops it was up at 899 u paid 504 hmm
