BROKEN CAMERA / Production HALT
My camera broke......This sucks!!! I wnet into the garage 2 sundays ago ready to avenge my shot that didnt make the cut. Flipped the switch and........ NOTHING!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! Totaly Sucks!
Ive had the camera for less than 9 months....I have no idea what happened to my cam.
So we formulate a quick plan to find the nearest NIKON camera Fix titians.
Shel drove it over to the nearest one. They couldnt Fix it because of it being a GREY MARKET camera. I had never heard that term before. It means a camera bought from a different country.So its not covered by the one year NIKON Warranty.MORE SUCK!!
Luckily I purchased a 5 year warranty ontop of the reg......so I sent it out and it should be getting fixed as we speak....How long will it take?????????????.....
Feeling like a hapless fish I tried to formulate a way to get back to work assoonas I could...Me and Shel talked and decided we need a backup camera for situations like this as well as our next project requireing 2 shoots hapening at once.
We ordered a New NIKONd40 the cheapest of the bunch....but a fine camera for my film.
My positive thinking is telling me this is FATES way of stopping me from shooting untill my flicker situation is under controll. I recently ordered an adjustable Dimmer which will fix my light fluctuations...it should be with us next week.
just in time for my new Backup camera to arrive.
