Showing posts with the label horizontal stripes

desperate for shots

Yesterday, we went to the mall to pay a bill that can't be done electronically. We also thought it would be a good chance to visit the Canon outlet where we bought the camera more than two years ago. We were supposed to inquire about the cost of the repair but, unfortunately, the said store or service center has already moved to a different location. I just could not accept the fact that the horizontal stripes appearing in every shot would prevent me from having our photos taken. I wonder how long it would take until we can finally have it fixed? Hmmmm, since I wanted to have photos of us together, I thought why not use the video part of the camera? I can take photos or snapshots from it through Windows Movie Maker, anyway. So, can we call it Filipino ingenuity or am I just trying to be mrs. practical? :-) Would it be right to say that "the end justifies the means"? :-)

is it time to get a new camera?

* Photo courtesy of photobucket I'm not really materialistic but I do believe that a camera is an important gadget that any family should have. The camera is a good friend which can help us document important events in our lives. Right now, I am slightly sad--I won't be able to take very beautiful pictures anymore with my 2 year old Canon Powershot A430! No matter what adjustments I would make, there would be white horizontal stripes that would appear on the photos (I can still take good videos from it though). I made a research about it and it's really one of the problems encountered by users of this camera, after years of good use. We'll try to contact the service center one of these days and find out if this could still be fixed and if we won't get heavily charged with the cost of repair else we will have to save up for a new one. This camera, even though I would agree that it is a camera for amateurs, has a sentimental value to me. It was a Valentine gift from
