My new-since-October camera started spazzing out a few months ago, and although it’s under warranty (thank, thank, THANK the Lord!) I haven’t been willing to part with it to have it checked. Since I want–no, make that NEED–it back before we go to the beach in a few weeks, I returned it yesterday.
Know what the Wolf Camera guy said when he tested my camera? "Wow…I’ve never seen THAT problem before!" NOT the way I wanna feel special!
It was flashing pictures like this:
When they should’ve looked like this:
I’m in mourning…I’ve got the shakes. Can’t take part in Project Blue (not with new photos, anyway); couldn’t photograph the spectacular sunrise I saw this morning; not able to track the bunnies’ growth anymore. And my other babies? I’ll just have to do a better job of taking mental pictures of the ordinary….
Breathe, Robin. Deep breaths. You’ll be okay.
I do that, too – I break things in ways that baffle repair people.
they’re fixing it or replacing it????
sigh. i feel your pain.
I hope you get it back in time! I would be FREAKING out!!!
Might you get a new camera out of this?? Oh and I’m glad you showed what ‘spazzing’ is as I did not have a clue!!!
Oh you poor poor thing. It’s like going without a car. How could they expect you to go on? They don’t have a loaner? They should. I’d be really tempted to go buy one and return it after the repaired on returns. Or better yet, it’s always good to have an extra body, right? In the old days of film, one would have black and white film and the other color. Today, one with a long lens, the other wide. Anyhow, I feel your pain and mourn your temporal loss.
Aack! I’m having sympathetic heart failure on your behalf. Please oh please tell me that isn’t a D40…
I would be so unhappy. 🙁
Jana, he even showed it to the other associates! lol
Janet, AT LEAST I have that…:)
Jeannie, he advised me how to “rent” a camera if need be…I’m hopeful for the return of my baby though!
Chris, lol, I forget there’s a language barrier sometimes :). And yes, if they can’t fix it, I get a new one :).
Robert, yeah, I know you’d be twitchy, photographer that you are! And, don’t tell anyone, BUT THAT’S WHAT THE GUY TOLD ME TO DO TO RENT IT!
Robin, I c o u l d tell you that, but I’d be lying :/. It’s a Nikon d-40….but I think you’ve dodged a bullet since it got me :).
Rebecca, lol, I’M TWITCHY, I tell ya…twitchy! 🙂
Robin, we just bought that same camera! It arrived yesterday. Oh these electronical glitchy things ruin our fun! I hope you get it back in time. Meanwhile I’m having a great time playing with mine! (sorry)
So, for the weekend, might I suggest the oh-so-pedestrian disposable, single-use digital camera? It will, at least, record those ordinary moments…lol.
