when i was in oregon, there were some fantastic sand dunes that led down to the beach from our house. on a walk to the beach one evening, my camera was in my pocket and fell out. i didn't notice until we were at the bottom of the sand hill so i ran back up it and found my poor, poor camera half buried in the sand. yay for finding it - boo for having dropped it. everything still worked but sounded crunchy. ack.
so, like i mentioned in my re-cap post, now it won't open. it stopped working while we were in duncan. i took it to a camera store and they said i'd have to send it to canon. canon's flat fee for fixing a camera is $178 but if there's moisture, sand, etc. inside, the cost goes up. well, we know there's sand in there. i paid $340 for my camera (on amazon - it's about $400 in canada) and the $178+ doesn't seem worth it.
now what? buy a cheap camera for less than $178? that seems lame since the reason i bought that camera was because i was tired of my cheap camera - especially since i'm taking photos daily for project life. what i'd like to do is upgrade! haha. the next step up is the Canon S100...i have to wait to discuss with tim (since he's been gone since monday) but don't you think that's the better option? ;) sure, i can drop another $350 right now...
