    Heyas,
    I have an older Canon SD 900 point and shoot that has been a workhorse since 2008 when I bought it. The LED viewer has gone belly up, I believe because of some water getting into it.
    Does anyone have a recommendation for repair locally (Seattle/Tacoma) or do I have to send it off to Canon. It is a solid little camera but starting to show its age.
    I know I can just use the old school viewfinder but having the screen would be a plus.
    Thanks in advance for any and all input :)

    Dave

    Given the advances in camera and sensor technology since 2008, I would encourage you to look into buying a new camera.

    Of course, if money is an issue, that may not be useful advice.
