On Thursday, 21st of November I booked an under-warranty repair with Sony Canada. I have to deliver it to a Sony Store and there is one in Pacific Centre. They want me to pack the camera into its original box! I guess people keep all the packaging material for anything they ever buy. Moi, I recycled the stuff in Saint Malo the same day that I bought the camera.

Friday, Nov. 22nd, 7pm. I just returned from a bike ride to the Sony Store in Pacific Centre Mall. The Mall was an eye-opener. Who buys all that STUFF? Where do they get all that MOOLAH from? Should I go shopping more? What would I do with all the stuff? Where would I store it? Maybe I should go to NCA meetings (Non-consumers Anonymous)?
Anyhu, I located the SONY store. The staff (Thank you, Max!) was exceedingly helpful, didn't expect me to bring my own box, and even remembered to take the memory chip out of the camera. Apparently I will be able to follow the process of the shipping/repair/shipping by internet and they'll even send me e-mails.
Thursday, Nov. 28th. Another e-mail informs me that the camera has been repaired and is being shipped back.
Friday, Nov. 29th. I received a package in the mail today. A fancy new-looking (very new looking ;-) Sony camera. It is the exact model that I wore out, but it is metallic blue.
THANK YOU, SONY !
