My Canon SD880 IS Smokes

The flash unit on my Canon SD880 IS started smoking when I took photos. It was pretty disconcerting.  I had the unit repaired two months ago because the SD card somehow got stuck in the unit. Now it's starting to emit smoke. It's still under warranty, so the repair should be covered. However, the warranty expires in October. I do not feel good about this purchase so far.

I did take some great photos with the camera, though.

  1. this is a common issue and canon covers it up by saying it must be stuff you got on the flash from how you store the camera.

    meanwhile in reality it is a short inside the housing thats arcing
