You didn't think it would just stop at a new camera bag and monopod, did you?
Monday, as I was shooting some product for the website my dear Rebel XT gave me the finger... as in an "Error 99" message. The dreaded error message that tells you that something is up but doesn't tell you what.
After mucking with the camera for a half hour and doing several searches on the internet I was finally able to get her to turn back on. But I'm getting ready to go on vacation. What if that little poo decides to take a nose dive on me while I'm on walkabout? I got severe shakes just thinking about it. The American dollar is so sucky right now that I'd end up paying twice as much as I would here for a new camera and I'm just not (anymore) a disposable 35mm camera-type gal.
So, here she is... the newest member of my family. From the time I received the Error 99 and ordered this new baby all of 60 minutes transpired. That's just plain sick.
Gee... good thing I'd already been doing some research on new cameras, eh?
BTW, that is my FIL, Just William aka Peter, peeking out at you. If you scroll backward through the blog, here, you'll find some info on him. JW aka P doesn't know it, yet, but he's going to be journaling with the rest of us this trip. Why don't you drop by a couple of times over the next couple weeks and see what he has to say about that.
