I had my camera in the shop so I could take pictures of my ongoing projects for my blogs. I reached to grab it and it slipped out of my hand and 4 feet later hit the concrete floor. D*mn gravity. Memory stick and battery popped out. I picked it up and reinserted both and turned it on, nothin’. Dead. So I charged the battery knowing full well it’s of no value but I had to try something, No joy. And lately I was considering buying another Li-ion battery pack for it because two of the three I have for it bit the dust. Now I’m glad I hadn’t.
It’s an old camera, a Sony CyberShot DSC-S50, one of the first, had it probably 10+ years so I got good use out of it. I did like it, took really sharp pictures and they looked great even when I’d print them 8×10.
Good thing I finally upgraded a few months ago and picked up a Nikon S630, but I still used the Sony more, at least around the house. And the only reason I upgraded was because I wanted one that fits in a pocket, if I hadn’t done that I’d be pictureless at the moment. Well I could use my Nikon D40 too but that’s like a 35mm, just more work and time attaching the lens and stuff. These other ones are point and shoot so it’s really quick. Or I could use my real 35mm. Do they still make film? ;)
