In the end of september my friends and I rented a cottage up north, I'll be posting the photos later tonight I think. Anyway at some point during the trip my camera bag fell off a chair and while it protected my dslr as it's intended, my point and shoot camera was in the top pocket and relatively unprotected.

When I turned it on later that night to take a picture I found out the lcd got smashed. Its out of warranty so it will cost me about 150 + shipping and handling to send it to canon, but I'm looking to see if I can just buy a replacement cd on the internet somewhere. If I replace it myself I'll write up a how-to.

For now I'm just shooting everything with my dslr.

Looks like I found the replacement lcd. 30 bucks sounds a lot better than 150! I'll do the replacement myself.
