and I'm happy as can be
March 14, 2005


I don't know if you caught it in the last entry, but my camera is broken. My digital camera. My Canon PowerShot G2. When it happened, I wasn't as upset as I thought I would be. Possibly because I had just slipped on some rocks and flailed face first into a wet, sandy beach, and my sore nose and sopping wet pants were more of an immediate concern.

I'm not entirely sure what happened, but the lens is stuck. It won't move, so when I turn the camera on, I get a LENS error and that's it. I thought maybe there was some sand trapped in there, and some canned air would be my salvation, but sadly, this was not the case. I can't afford a new camera, so I'm going to have to look into fixing it. I have no idea how much it will cost, but I suppose I'll find out as soon as I take it to the camera shop.

Until then, I've got my little Kodak DX3500, which is okay, but it's no G2. I took some photos with it this weekend, and the quality just isn't the same. My other option is to go completely manual and use my trusty Pentax K1000, which is perfectly fine, but I know I'll miss the instant gratification of digital.

So cross your fingers that the G2 repairs are minor. Else, I may start selling photos to go towards a new camera fund.
