          Thanks for the useful info. For myself it would be the perfect excuse to buy new gear! Yippee!!!

          Shame about that Barso, otherwise it would have been a great image.

            Hmmm.... Not good. Maybe try some mobile phone photography. I've seen some pretty spectacular results from them. Unless you have a good old Nokia 3300 though.

                Camera failure strikes again.......bah!
                2017 can be remembered for 1. Knocking a camera off a bridge and destroying it 2. Having my trusty Canon 600D fail with the same fault (costly) 3. My cheap ebay purchase has given up with CCD sensor failure, can't complain though it had over 95K clicks on it.
                Nothing new on the horizon so no more piccies from me for the foreseeable.

                    @garysibio - Had a smartphone but camera was rubbish, plus I couldn't use a phone the way I use a camera.

                      Do you have a smartphone with a camera? It's not the same as having a dedicated camera but a lot of them produce ome excellent results.

                        @Gerry - The Canon went into a friends parts bin earlier this year as the replacement parts were more than the price of a used 600D on ebay

                          So sorry to hear this? You can send your camera to Canon for repair. I had my trusy EOS T1 repaired at the Irvine CA facility a few years back (I lived near it) ...they have an east coast service center too. Or time to go shopping?

                            Doh! Mine are still kicking along beautifully. One has survived a couple of drops even. Hope you get something soon.

                              Thanks Denise, it looks like even old Pentax cameras give up at some date

                                Oh no! You aren't having a good camera year. Hope you find something soon so you can share your view of the world with us still! You have some great images.
