I’ll be missing you.

Racing up the stairs, cradling it in my arms. Bursting through the doors calling, “Please help me! I’ve dropped it!” With a worried expression on my face the words blurt out. “I think I’ve killed it!”

My camera repair man looks at me and without a twitch on his face, moves his hand down under the counter and pulls out his notebook. “What’s your name? What’s it doing? What’s your contact details? I’ll email you when I’ve worked out the problem.”

My error. Rushing is not the way to set up.

Thank goodness for my phone camera or withdrawals I surely would be suffering.

It’s been 2 days…. waiting…. waiting…. The lens I was using is fine. He tried it on one of his cameras at the store. The camera however… nada…. When you turn it on… no light, no camera, no action.

    Shit happens. Let your shoulders down. Good that your lens is saved.
    Now for the camera… If it’s not worth it to repair the piece, just breathe a couple of times and then say thank you. And then you get the camera of your dreams. And you say thank you again.
    A nerd told me to react like this when my notebook broke down many years ago.
    Many PCs and Macs and cameras later, I try to be calm and react like this when I hand over my credit card. It takes some nerves, but the joy when you have the upgraded version in front of you …

    Now, did this help? 🙂 If not, I’d recommend Snoopy. He brightens my days regularly. 🙂
    All the best,
    fingers crossed!
    Thanks for your visits and the follow. It’s much appreciated! 🙂

    Can’t like this, but can sympathize.

    I carry insurance on my camera equipment as a rider on my regular homeowner policy. I’ve only had to use it once when I dropped a lens. It’s not perfect, but it gives a bit of peace of mind.

    Luckily, I still have my D200 and D100 I could use as backups if my D7000 has an “event”.

    Hope you can replace (and perhaps upgrade) so
