I was using a Canon 1100D aka Rebel T3 for a quite long time. When I was taking some shots near the sea, my camera sank into the sea water, which caused motherboard damage and lens aperture damage.
The showroom is charging a really huge amount for this repair. In that accident, both my camera body as well as lenses (18-55 and 55-250) were damaged. The guy is offering me a second hand 1100D at a slightly low price. Here are the options in front of me:
- Should I go for the second hand camera 1100D?
- Should I spend money on repairing my old 1100D? But it won't have any warranty!
- Or should I save money for a time and go for a new better upgraded version?
EDIT:- The repair cost is approx. $280. For the used 1100D he is asking me to give him my non-working model and $225.
p.s. Money is a big factor right now.
