It's just so sad that forever happens to be 2 days, i dont feel good about fussing over such a small issue but then again... I'll have to give them a call tomorrow and see what they say and do. I'll let those of you who will run into this problem (hopefully not as quickly as I did here) know how they treat this issue. An exchange would be great because the wait on their repair services tend to be a 2-3 weeks? maybe more according to their websites.well...it can't stay dust-free forever, but certainly I think Ricoh would agree that it should be better than this for the first 30days. I'd conatc someone about his and see if you can either exchange the camera or return it. That is NOT proper. If no one will deal with it, I'd bust out a good vacuum.
Has anyone already written about the other DIY solution, the one that consists in coupling the (off) camera to a vibrating cell-phone?I'm not advocating putting a vacuum cleaner hose directly up against the lens assembly of a brand new $800 camera (and anyone who tries it does so at their own discretion and possibly throws any warranty out the window), but I wonder what would happen.
I didn't actually see much other than a guy coming toward me until I brought that one up on the computer. I love when that happens...LOL! it's sleeves are so tight they are acting as a tourniquet.
