    I had a serious look at the original Q some time ago, when they were virtually giving the bodies away for, istr, 80. The lenses are not dirt cheap though and a lot of them are, what they call, toy...

    If it is under warranty and has not had some mechanical damage, send it to be repaired. If out of warranty, throw it away and get another 50 camera, or ideally get a better one. Around 130 will get...

    Your best bet would be the Panasonic TZ40 at 135 or so at Currys if they have any left. Not sure how much of a faff it is to connect directly to a wi-fi printer.
