Sleeping Beauties and Sick Cameras: WW


This is my best picture of the week and sadly, it was taken with my iPhone because at a birthday party last night the Canon angrily flashed red and gray error messages at me every time I tried to take a picture. I tried everything I could think of and then resorted to calling Canon. When the extremely helpful Kent informed me that his system was telling him that if you see that message, it means the camera needs to be sent in immediately for service,thank the stars it’s still under warranty! I’ve only had it for not quite 11 months I nearly fell off the edge of sanity. He kindly talked me back from the brink.
So, first thing tomorrow it’s off to the mail store to package my baby up and send it off to be fixed.
The thing that worries me, Casey just informed me that it took 5 weeks to get hers back.

  4. Oh no! They should give out rentals in the mean time! I bought the warranty for mine; so should at least send it in to get cleaned…or drop it in water or something, right?

    I sure hope it doesn’t take 5 weeks!!
