Hi there,

Unfortunately I forgot to do up my camera case properly this morning. As I was getting onto a train, my camera fell onto the platform. The lense is badly damaged, and the camera body is badly scuffed. In addition to this there is a black mark in the view finder, which appears irrespective of which lense I use.

The camera is a Canon EOS 400d. I am thinking along the lines of getting this sorted under my home contents insurance.

For a lower end SLR like the 400d, will they bother repairing or just replace it? Additionally, will they also repair the cosmetic damage too?

Cheers

black mark in the view finder could be dirt, does it appear on any photos you take?

If it was me I wouldn't care too much about the scuff on the body, as long as the camera is working ok it doesn't really matter. It would effect resale value but that also depends if you are planning on selling it and when.

I'd be more concerned about getting the lens repaired. Does it still work? or again, is it just cosmetic?
