Camera On It’s Last Legs

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

Well, I just bought a new battery for my camera a couple weeks back and it’s been working great since!  About a half hour ago, I went to pull it out of my pocket, and all I got was the hand strap!  the camera actually broke apart from the strap!

The camera is still working beautifully, but it’s definitely got many many battle scars by now!  The battery compartment closes, but once you open it the battery slides out right away.  Normally there’s a little plastic latch to hold it in.  The whole thing has a huge creak to it, and the buttons feel like they are super weak.  etc etc.

Where’s All My Pictures?

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

For those folks who frequent my site, and enjoy surfing almost every photo I take… (which probably isn’t a huge crowd)… I’ve got good reason for not uploading anything recently! I lost my camera battery!! It’s been a tad annoying, but ever since I went hiking for a week in the Stein Valley, I haven’t been able to find the battery. I managed to snap over 800 photos on my amazing battery, and then I swapped over to a spare one I brought with for the last 200 shots, but when I got home I could no longer find my original battery. I also had a spare battery for my cellphone in the same little zip-lock bag, and they’re both missing.

Not to worry though, I’ve finally caved and ordered a new battery online and it should be here next week. I can only hope it will be as amazing as my first battery… and also that my camera will hold together a little while longer. Those of us who know my camera well know what I mean.
