Boo Hoo Hoo!
My camera broke and it feels like I’ve lost a thumb!
I have really enjoyed my little Canon (a Power Shot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH). It was a gift when my youngest was born and has been well used. I’ve filled an 8G card near 6 times in the 10 months I’ve had it. You can see why I’m really bummed since it is my only camera.
It appears that the ELPH is prone to lens problems (as are many point and shoot cameras) and it is quite possibly still under warranty. I tried to contact Canon through the website yesterday but had issues when I tried to submit the repair order form. I tried three times and finally gave up. They will be getting a phone call today and hopefully I can get it fixed.
That being said I may be in the market for an SLR. I’ve gone through three cameras in the past 3-4 years and my husband mentioned that maybe it is time for an upgrade! 🙂 No more boo hoo, that’s a woo hoo! The trouble is, like always money is king and so I am searching for one that’s a couple years old and hopefully still in good working condition. If I can find a decent SLR for a good price and still get my little ELPH fixed maybe it will not get used to death and I can begin a new adventure in the world of photography!
Here’s where you come in. If you have an SLR what is your favorite and why. I take mostly picture of my kids and animals and am by no means a professional nor do I have a money tree 🙂 but I do have some $$ saved up for this purpose!
