My camera Canon Rebel XT has suddenly gone of order in the sense that:
When I turn my camera ON and take a pic, I cannot take a second picture.
I have to turn it OFF and back ON again to be able to take another picture. Such continuous ON/OFF toggle is needed.
The screen comes up and show the picture I snap but once it goes away, it never come back until I turn the camera back OFF / ON and take a second picture.
No button work. Menu button doesn't do any thing. I can delete a picture though but once screen goes dark, I cannot work with any button.
I called Technical Support of Canon but they said that it seems like an internal problem which a user cannot fix. Furthermore, he told me that the bad news is that Canon now does not provide support for Rebel XT.
He offered to go with Canon's royalty / loyalty program to get a refurbished camera body in place of this. Cameras available with them range from $400 to $2000 from T4i to 5D Mark III.
I am struggling to go with either T4i ($400 - $500) and 7D ($780) but just thought to ask you guys if there is still a way I can get my rebel XT fixed?
Other suggestions are very welcome too.
