Yesterday my 6 and 9 year old siblings were fighting and one of them pushed the other into my desk and my camera fell off and hit the floor. My 18-55mm lens will no longer auto-focus and it makes a really painful squeaking noise. So all I can really use is my 55-200mm lens. i started to remember how much of a pain that is, today....
The lady at the camera store said they could send it to Nikon for $40 but i dont know if its gonna cost extra to get it fixed. I guess its not supposed to cost more if its under 5 years old - which it is. Plus $25 to clean my sensor (or $99 if its really bad) which really needs cleaning so much its sad.
I wish I had the money to buy a new, better, lens, but I dont and that sucks. (Or the D90 which cleans itself and comes with an 18-105mm, lol...)
it wouldnt be so bad if I had been the one to drop it (thats happened before...), but I just kinda had a mini-meltdown yesterday, i was furious! And I'm still mad about it, because my siblings don't seem to respect things that don't belong to them and they're just KIDS, its not like they have the money to pay for the repaid costs or to buy me a new lens. So I'm gonna pay for it.... and they don't even care.
This week has just SUCKED. i cant wait for it to be over. bring on easter and spring break plzktnx sorry for the rant and mini-pity party xD had to get it out of my system
My name is Emily and I'm 18 years old. I live near Cleveland Ohio and I love photography. :] I've been taking pictures as a hobby since I was 11 or 12. I started out with my mom's old point and shoot Canon, and now I currently use my own Nikon D40, with either my 15-55 mm or 55-200mm lens.
I like all kinds of photography and I try to broaden my horizons and do different things. I'm hoping to go to a photography school and be a photographer professionally when I'm older.
I both appreciate and need comments and critique. I want to learn and grow as a photographer so if you have any help or suggestions you can offer me, please feel free to do so :]
