My Nikon CoolPix L18 died after a very short life. Lens error. I had a CoolPix s210 that couldn't withstand a bus tire in Merida, but I forgive it! I need to get something similar tomorrow and was thinking Costco. Anyone have any ideas, suggests, etc or what's available out there? Is there some place better than Costco to look? Are there brands that have serviced here? I had a US purchase Kodak Easy Share that died after a short life, too, last year and couldn't be serviced here. Thanks for any input!
