A sad day around here – my beloved Sony camera has gone nutty. The flash has stopped working, which in a coastal winter means the camera takes very grainy, dark pictures all the time. The flash just stopped flashing on Saturday. It worked the day before, but the next day, no flash. It is a five year old camera, so no warranty and the cost to mail it in and fix it is not worth it. I can replace it, but will it be something as loved as this one? This little camera never failed me, it had great colour pick-up, great macro ability and amazing definition. For a little point and shoot, it was a prince.
Mr. Kate says now I just have a summer camera. It’s true it’s not totally broken, as it can still take pictures, but somehow I already feel abandoned. My camera is always at the ready, and helps me give voice to so many things around.
So the quest begins for a new camera. I will stick with a point and shoot with a really good zoom, and see where we get to.
But it won’t be the same.
