Not much to report, just snowing…again!
Years ago hubby, and I received a camera free through points we used off of his credit card (actually we paid for it in the long run). This camera is still a nice camera and works wonderfully. That is, until I took the camera out to take a picture of an eagle, and the release assembly broke off the camera, and rolled out of site in the state park we were visiting.
I attempted to continue to use the camera by sticking a finger and pen tip in the release assembly; to no avail. The camera did not work.
Instead of buying a brand new camera, I did some research on the internet and learned this happens often with this particular camera. So often, I found a site called Camera Hacker, a forum with several posts by Glenn Gorman explaining in detail how to remove the old parts, and where to order the new part, along with how to install the new part.
I bookmarked this site so when the part arrives, I will have the instructions handy to complete the replacement.
It pays to do research on the computer and saves you money.
