Default Ben O' While.....

Not sure who is still around, or if anyone remembers me. I had the what, Fine Pix 700, I think, then bought the HS10, still have it, a few here:

But its pretty tuckered out. I'm thinking about the HS50EXR, or the SL1000, anybody shed any light on these units?

I remember you Eddie. These are gorgeous pictures. Nothing wrong with the camera that took these!

Well hey, I remember you too Hawg!

Well, the camera just locks up, won't shut off, I have to pull the batteries to get it to reboot. I also, not sure how, put a chip on the lens (at about 3 o'clock). I use it for my bead work, if you remember my wife makes sculptured beads (lampwork) and sells then online, all over the world. I often have to take well over a hundred snaps a day of her work, and its a pain in the arse to keep doing that, as well as the AF seems to be failing. I shoot the beads in a tent, camera on a tripod, in macro. For no apparent reason, after one exposure, it won't lock onto the bead again (after I turn it for a different view) I haven't changed the distance, so I don't know. I have to back it out and then edge in back in to get what I want....arg. So, yeah, I can get it to work, but its starting to consume to much of my time doing it....I must have around, if not more, 50,000 clicks on it, I got my monies worth
