My camera goes everywhere I do. I snap pictures of everything. I think I have this deep seeded thought that I will snap a perfect picture someday! I have come to realize that there is more to this than just snapping...........Step #1. Know your camera
Earlier this week as I was snapping, my camera locked up. A little red light on the back came on and would not go off. I looked closely and it said SD card....ok....to me it was saying the card was not installed properly, full, or just needing attention. So I pulled it out, took another picture and same thing happened. Now I tell you "ignorance is no excuse" and I realize that....instead of reading my manual like I should have, I ruined my camera. The fine print (who reads it?) ......or maybe basic knowledge that I somehow failed to acquire...."You Must Format Your Card".....I have used this card for a year or two, never formatted it and it had become corrupted! Hence the red light, trying to transfer data and could not....
The next day I made a path to Bedford Camera and Video to have camera repaired. I'm like a kid in a candy store when I go to Bedford, I tell myself I should be banned from the store but this was a necessary trip, right? My choice was to spend 4 - 6 weeks without it and pay half the price of a new camera OR just buy a new updated 15.1 mega pixel toy for myself. I have an early Christmas present in my possession!
I have always wanted to attend one of Bedford's classes but they have them in the evening and usually run for 6 weeks. They are having an all day class tomorrow for people who aren't interested in the 6 week class...me! I am determined to know all there is to know about my new Canon and never ruin it!!!
I hope you all are having a wonderful Friday! I am enjoying the cool weather! No A/C, windows up and pancakes for breakfast!
