My family and I were excitedly beginning The Reading Hour. I was busy taking snaps when I dropped my camera. It landed on the lens and broke.
The damage is worse than it actually looks. There is an internal piece which is shaking around inside the camera, and the lens won’t retract or extend.
I can still turn the camera on, but this is the message I get:
It was certainly a basic camera, but it was so easy to use and produced some decent shots. The camera is at least five years old now, and I’m not sure that getting it repaired would be value for money.
Purchasing a new camera is not on the cards at the moment. With a baby on the way, it’s just not something we can afford right now. I’m certainly worried about the quality of photos I’ll be publishing here at My Little Bookcase.
But more importantly, I’m simply devastated that the only photos I’ll be capturing of our gorgeous newborn will be ones taken with my iPhone. :(
