Oh Drat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm soooo sad...my good camera has the dreaded E18 error....which means the lens isn't retracting or focusing correctly. I guess it is a VERY common problem with Canon cameras--a defect if you will that their cameras often have. Since the camera is out of warrenty and it's $250 to have them 'fix' it...you're better off getting a new camera! So my husband has been trying all the 'hint's' online to try and fix it himself...so far without success. Drat! Drat! Drat! Not really wanting to spend money on a new camera right now, but the other camera's we have aren't as nice for the super macro pic's I like for my jewelry...so I'll just have to make do for awhile.

Oh well it could be worse...like something I really need...my dishwasher, frig, car...just a small blip on the radar...a little bummer. Going off to count my blessings! >^..^<

Hi Rickie! I've been meaning to write you for 2 weeks! I thank you so much for your support and I am so sorry to hear about your camera! I have a Canon now too...

Oh Catherine, it was so great to know that you are doing lampwork again and just the best to see your beautiful family--TWO boys! What fun!!!

I'm going to be a grandmother for the first time--the baby is due in August and I'm over the moon about it!
Hugz!

Hi Rickie, Sorry to hear about the camera woes but great news about the grandchild! If you're getting a new camera I'd recommend the site "imaging-resource" which has a TON of reviews and technical stuff. I don't fully understand all the lingo, but I still found it very useful when I was selecting my current camera last year. There's a Dave's Picks: Macro section that might be especially useful for capturing your work!

Thanks Heather (?) I'll definitely check it out! Still hoping for a miracle, but not really expecting it to get fixed at this point!
