Yesterday afternoon my little credit card size digital camera flickered for the last time as its light finally went out. It has served me well over the years taking countless pictures from the East Coast to the West Coast, and on countless days it worked very hard taking 200 pictures daily. It was a good little camera that stayed by my side, in my pocket most days.
I had planned on getting a much better camera with many more functions and with greater zooming abilities so that I could take those GREAT nature shots, but it would have to be a much larger, nicer digital camera with a nice detachable lens. And being that it would be much bigger and heavier, would I carry it with me for those pictures that just pop up on the spur of the moment? Probably not. After all I'd be so afraid of bumping the lens and it would have to be housed in it's own padded camera case. I wouldn't just keep it with me hanging around my neck because it certainly wouldn't fit in my pocket...so how many pictures would I really take with it? I would have to deliberately plan moments to take pictures.
I've dreamed of a bigger & better camera, but my heart is really with another small pocket sized one, that will be my constant companion once again.
I quickly emailed the company last night and told them what happened to my camera and I'm waiting for a reply from them on whether it can be repaired. I hope so.
