    Unhappy Sad News. Off Topic

    Hello folks,
    I wanted to share this here since this is where I post most of my pictures. It is going to be a long time until I have anything new to post. Christmas day my camera took a dump. The consensus is the sensor went bad. Time will tell but it does not look good. And being on disability, it will be a long time until I can replace it. I am so depressed. Just wanted to let you folks know as you might wonder what happened to me. I will continue to look at your amazing photos. Keep the posts coming. I enjoy them a lot.

    God bless,

    Bill

    Sorry to hear this bad news Bill. @Friggs. I wish I had a spare camera to loan you, until you save up for a new one. Do you have any lenses that you don't use much that you could sell and maybe pickup another D300? Those cameras are not that expensive any more.

    I use all of my lenses. And they aren't worth much. Except my 200-500 and I am not selling that. I sold most of what I own to get that.

    That's not good news Bill, hopefully you will be able to get things sorted sooner, rather than later.
    What about your 70-300 ? Maybe you could trade that for another D300, here in Australia they would be a similar value.

    Hopefully things will turn around for you. Refurbed D7100s should be getting cheap in the near future.
