As most of my loyal readers know, I adore taking photos.
On my way back from work, I try to stop at the aud and take some demolition photos; as shown in my header.
Yesterday I pulled my camera out of my bag (hey, it’s a point-and-shoot, not an SLR, though, perhaps, if I’m REALLY good, the Birthday Gnome will bring me on. Note: Send entry to Steve.) to take a few shots.
My lens went out-in-out-in-out-in- out-“Turn power off and back on”.
out-in-out-in-out-in- out-“Turn power off and back on”
After a few times of this, I did what any impatient person would do, I gave it a hearty rattle and rapping.
(logic: if rattling and rapping make it go wonky, than ratting and rapping should fix it*)
A good ten minutes later, I give up and cave to the (un)power of the camera phone.
DAMN YOU 2.3 MEGAPIXELS!!!
Thinking the battery wasn’t juiced enough to get the lens to focus, I charged for a few hours.
So, I turn to my Hitchhikers Guide… google.
Ends up that a crapload of people have this VERY SAME ISSUE!!!
So, what did they do?
Lens side down.
I’ll be damned.
Guess the BFH (big f-ing hammer) DOES work.
