Five years, one month and three days ago, I bought myself a Canon PowerShot S500 Digital ELPH digital camera. Around this time last year, I gave the camera up for dead but never got around to chucking it out and now I’m very glad I never did. Then around a month or two back, I heard via SEB that there was a recall on some Canon cameras where they would fix the camera at no cost even if the waranty had expired. I checked the service notice and saw my camera was covered by it.I contacted Canon, followed their instructions, shipped my camera to them and had it back in my hands (and working!) in about 2 weeks. Very nice!
