My Camera Broke!!!

Ok, this isn't my camera, and it's not this bad. I guess.

I had been out shooting some pictures in the Bytown Market, everything was good. I stopped in at an eatery for wings and to do a review. I pull out the camera, the lens extends, but makes some funny noises (my camera never made those noises before). Then the screen flashes "Lens error, restart camera" and turns off. But the lens stays extended. Weird. I press the on button, but the same thing happens, and the lens still doesn't move. The woman at the counter who took my order asks "is you camera ok?" I'm embarrassed first because I'm trying to do a review with some anonymity, and second, that the camera is so loud that she heard it. I try again and nothing. I take out the batteries and try again. Nothing. I can't restart my camera if I want to. I try again in vain. Nothing. No photos for review.

I get home and try again after a while. Nothing. Oh and customer service isn't open until business hours so I have to wait a few days for them to open. I have to send it away. AND I think something happened to the photos I did have, because I put the memory card in a digital picture frame, and nothing. Crap. Crap crap crap.

Thankfully I have my old digital camera as a back up. But I planned on doing an episode of WKTV this weekend when I did a 'Suicide' Beer Can Chicken, but the video on the old camera sucks.

I don't know if there is going to be any new reviews till I get my camera back, but I have a bunch of posts backlogged anyway, so just bear with me!

I'd be lost without my camera. Eeeek!

Good luck!

Dude, I totally feel your pain!

I accidentally broke my camera last month:

And as of today, Nikon still shows it's status as "in shop" after they've had it since 3/27. That's why all my food photos have looked like crapola lately!
