My camera broke.
The lens is stuck in the outward position, and I can technically turn it on and off but nothing happens, besides the beeping and the screen says "lens error". Even if I plug it into the computer I can't see any pictures. Needless to say it's really not great timing for this to happen. I doubt that anyone ever says, "Well at least it's good timing for something super annoying to happen." So now what?
I'm pretty sure I have to buy a new camera. My son changes on a daily basis and additionally I'm trying to build a business that relies heavily on photographs. I suppose I have the option of trying to get the camera repaired, but I would hate for the cost of repair to be the same as a new camera, and I'm sure I wouldn't know until I actually brought it somewhere. So I think I have my work cut out for me, since I have no idea what I need in a camera, and I don't really have the time to get too involved in the process. I suppose I will find a few options within my price range, and read the reviews.
If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear em!
