my camera is in the shop...

Actually I am anticipating it's return any day now. I found a repair shop for my Sony digital, and shipped it off. Our amusement park trip to Kennywood and ride on the raging rapids managed to fry the lcd screen. I truly am going through camera withdrawal... I find I reach for it when the grandkids come to visit, at school, and with October and fall leaves starting I am really feeling it! I even priced out new cameras but couldn't see forking out 600 plus dollars when it is likely to get repaired for under 300.00. I am a bit nervous but the testimonials for this company are good. Really surprising how different our 'contacts' are with web 2.0 isn't it?

Great crafter item!
