I’d consider $149 a bargain considering this is high-tech equipment. Sony used to charge $500 flat rate. I believe the warranty is only 90 days for new cams. What I do is get an extended 4 year warranty for another $117 when I buy. That way, I can goof around for years and years and still have it under warranty.
Cameras depreciate to about 50% in 18 months. I’d keep the cam and maybe try a MAC warranty…or somesuch.
