Remember my new camera that was the same as my old camera? The camera that I’ve owned less than a month? The camera that I bought to replace the camera that I dropped?
I dropped it. a little bit.
Actually, it fell out of my coat pocket – in its so-called ‘protective’ case – onto a sidewalk. It happened the morning of ukulele night and as I stood on that sidewalk trying to deny what just happened and pleading with God to please, please turn back time a little bit for do-overs, I realized that I was hosed. That’s why the ukulele pictures turned out so crummy – the fall made the camera only focus on the top left quadrant of every picture. Dnagdnagdnagdnagdnag.
So, after a few days of berating myself and agonizing over the waste of money and plastic, I searched on the internet for a Lauren-proof model. Turns out that Olympus makes one – the 720 sw. ‘S’ for shockproof – it can withstand a fall of 5 feet (I’m 5 1/2, so I should be ok), and ‘W’ for waterproof – up to 10 feet! (I won’t be testing that feature.)
So, God bless getting a sweet eBay deal and let’s all hope and pray that I don’t mess this one up.
P.S. Do you know anyone who needs camera accessories for a Canon Powershot SD30? I have a few doubles of things – docks, cables, remotes and two useless protective cases.
