Digital Death in the Call Family

Please remember my poor camera! We had some good times. The camera doctor at Inkley's said it would cost $400 to repair my Alphie 100 camera. Sony said their initial charge was a base rate of $224 plus repairs cost, tax, and shipping. Most of the local repair peeps around here just send the camera back to Sony for fixin' up. A new Sony Alpha 200 is about $500. You do the math. I nearly want to give up photography until I can afford another camera. Justin graciously suggested I use his motorcycle fund to buy a new camera and pay him back (so he can get a gun instead of a motorcycle). Join me tomorrow night when I bury Alphie in the backyard. May she rest in peace.

PS - went to Costco yesterday and they have, I think, $150 off the Cannon Rebel package. Total is around 7 or 8 hundred

Incase you're still shopping...
