OK, so I just used my S5200 a couple days before. Noticed the Alk. batteries were getting low, but still had enough umph to take the few flash shots I needed of the girls going to homecoming dance.
Turn it on, nothing.
Grab my rechargable batteries, power it up, nothing.
Hummm, I thought those were recharged.
Grab some more Alk. batteries, loose in the drawer, nothing. Dang teenages, you would think they would throw bad batteries out!
Open new package, put those in, nothing.
Check all knobs, dials, buttons, nothing.
Crap, camera died.
Spend the next 4 days researching new cameras, and being really really perturbed that my favorite camera of all times is dead.
Need to take a couple snap shoots. Grab the Nikon 3200 and shoot them.
Humm, can't seem to get the SD card in the card reader (dark in the computer room, light is burned out and no replacment bulb in the house).
Grab flash light. What is this! Seems to be an XD card in the card reader.
Pull out XD card, replace in S5200, turns right on!
