I'm Naked

I'm naked. Not in literal terms though. I heard you just say, 'Whew!."

My camera has been shooting high. When I think back, it's been doing this for about a year. When I asked the lady that taught my photography class about it she said, "Oh some cameras just do that." So I never thought twice about it....

Until I used two different cameras and theirs shot spot on. It was then I realized, this is not normal.

So after a few sleepless nights and many unanswered phone calls, I managed to get a hold of a Sony person. He told me the anti-dust mechanism is broken, he could tell by the grinding noise it made, and therefore is causing the camera to be out of whack.

Good times.

The warranty has expired because I've had my third child for over a year. Sony Man said the cost would be $198.00. I decided to bust out my 'sweet talking sales lady voice' and see if I could get a better deal.

I told him how I love my camera, which is true. But I had a hard time paying $200 to fix it when I had paid full price for the camera. He understood, so he said, "As long as there is nothing else wrong with it, I can charge you half price."

I cried, a little, enough to make him feel good about his decision.

So hopefully I do not receive a phone call saying, "Hi, Mrs, K---, we are sorry but there is indeed more damage and we will have to charge you another $100 to fix it."

All that said to let you know, I feel naked. I want my clothes/camera back.

Here is Coop, one year ago to the day. He was just starting solids.


  1. Glad you're getting your baby fixed =) And oh, my! What a difference a year makes.

  2. Oh dear! not only are you naked, but you've packed up your clothes and shipped them off to someone else! eeeek!

    I hope they are speedy at getting it fixed and returned for you.

  3. Sorry Megan. That is frustrating. You still take good pictures though.

  4. I hope you get your camera back soon and for 1/2 price cost fixing. :) And I'm glad you weren't taking naked pics. :)
