Give it to Grace to play and 'pretend' with.

Although I know it won't work, as she's not stupid, and it never worked with my boy. But anyway ....

:)

( P.S. - I hear ya on the 'learning the new camera' routine. Annoying. You're not a Taurus, are you ? ;)

My Father, a lifetime passionate amateur photographer has both the fancy DSLR and the light, cheap, easy to use compact. He bought the fancy one first and now, though he is loath to admit it, prefers compact and is a bit sheepish at the $$$ that is in the camera bag...Though he still hasn't let me borrow it!

Did you try a replacement battery? Is it definitely the camera?
I invested in a very flash pro camera but I still carry my old decrepit Powershot with me everywhere. It's sad and outmoded And it's older than your brick. But I love it so. We've been so many places together. I can't decide if I should buy a new purse camera or just commit to lugging all my gear with me.

Oh yes, we tried new batteries, new leads. Eveything really. The man at the camera repair place was so kind and patient and seemed to understand how much the brick meant to me. I nearly cried when he told me what he thought it would cost to fix. And part of me was tempted to pay it, but my dad's been at me to try a DSLR for a while now...

Once I figure out whether I like it or not, I'll either get a new powershot or keep the DSLR and get a compact (maybe an olympus waterproof - already called the "splash and bash" in my head) to keep in my bag.

Apparently the old canons have really good lenses for point and shoots. I can understand why you are so attached to yours Rachel. Indeed if it hadn't given up the ghost I probably wouldn't be putting in the time to learn how to use the DSLR...

And h&b, I'm a scorp. Even more annoying than a taurus ;)

I have a first generation Canon Ixus which cost me way too much but has been wonderful. I've just started idley looking at eBay for a spare in case mine finally decides to give up the ghost - have you checked eBay to see if you could buy another (working) brick?

i was lucky because i cut my teeth on film slr so using the dslr manual mode was a breeze ~ you mean i can see it right away :) tee hee

give yourself some time because once you lean it, you'll be thrilled with what you can do :)

I think you should put the brick in a nice shadowbox, with some memento photos in the background.
