    She has a point and shoot Pentax IQZoom900.
    The telephoto function works, the film rewind works but when you try to shoot a picture the message "E7" appears in the window and it will not function.
    Would this be the ignorance of the user, a disfunction of the camera and bottom line, is it worth getting it fixed? If so, where do you suggest?
    Thanks

    According to here:
    http://www.pentaxusa.com/service/faq/serv_prodrep.cfm#2

    "E3, E7, E37: These codes often signal a problem with your shutter mechanism."

    I don't know anything specific about that particular point n shoot, but in general, I don't think they would be worth getting fixed, they are pretty cheap these days I think...

    Well, thanks for the link. Yeah, I think it is history.
    Anyway, I found a Canon Photura, one that I owned a long time ago, and it is totally automatic.
    Mine took much better pictures on its worst day than the one mentioned on its best.
    I think I will try to sell this Pentax on Ebay for a reserve of $1.95 plus shipping and let her have fun with the Canon Photura!
    Appreciate the input.

    Give her your camera and then you can say you now need to replace it.

    You now have a good excuse to go out and buy a F5 or D70. (Hey, it's worth a shot right...?) ;^D
