Good News...Sort Of

Found my camera, but it is miffed at me. I was able to download the photos I had taken, but when I try to take new pictures it tells me to turn the camera off and then on again. Perhaps it is angry because it fell off my truck and I neglected to notice it. Or maybe it did not appreciate spending the night alone in the swamp with the bears.

Think if I brought it flowers...?

I want to say something helpful, but I don't have a clue...being a film guy still.
So, I'll just be supportive and say I hope it's a temporary glitch.

Have you tried taking the battery out yet? (Please understand that I don't mean for you to leave it out. Well, you just never know. lol)

Think you could work out a deal with the bears? Be great to see what they would photograph. :) Hope the camera is okay.

No...flowers won't do it.

I'm afraid this is "ring" time. ;-)

Most likely it's damp inside its workings. That can be fixed but you need to get it to a camera doctor who can open it up to dry it out, otherwise you'll get condensation problems.

Let's see some of the newly resurrected photos?

Whew! Good news.
Maybe if you tried flowers, ring and chocolates!!!

Oh, how sad and frustrating. Luck.

If the sucking-up measures don't work, you might try threats. "I'd really HATE to have to take you back to the camera store... but you're forcing me..."

Good luck getting it back in working order!

I'm visiting for the first time--intrigued by swamps & your photos are wonderful so I do hope your camera feels better.

Very strange indeed, the camera sent me an email a couple days ago and asked me to pass along 3 conditions (I thought it was a joke):

#1 It wants to be called "Natasha" and held in a gold sequined accessory bag.

#2 she wants to accompany you when you watch television and/or any movies, but she wants you to wash the butter and salt off your fingers before you put her back in the bag at night.

and #3 she admits to feeling reduced to inanimatcy when you make her take pictures of poo--even though she too has quite a scientific approach to the world, she prefers: butterflies, jeweled beetles, and bears (not in that order).

Weird, eh? But you know how demanding cameras can be . . .
