Default Life after death

Well, sort of. My FZ28 had a nasty fall on the hard floor some time back. I thought it was dead, as it hung and froze within a few seconds every time after switching on. Besides, the mode became very tight and rigid, and the wide-tele control started malfunctioning - it only went to the extreme of any direction - either full wide or full zoom. I was worried I would miss recording my grand-daughter's growth, as my budget doesn't allow buying another camera in the next several months. Giving this in for repair, I believe, also takes that much time. I was upset.

I don't know how, but a few days later, when checking it out again, though the mode dial was still hard, the other functions seemed to have restored a bit. Fortunately, looks like the FZ28 still has some life left, giving lease of life for my photography. A couple of shots:



One of the most beautiful flowers I have seen, the cannonball flower:

Thanks, JJ. Alive, yes, kicking? - no, just limping. Let's see.

I'm glad you got your camera working!! You certainly don't want to miss any precious moments with the little one. Beautiful little flowers (both of them).

Good that your camera is a tough one. Would not want to miss these shots.

Thank you, Steve! I think the camera has progressed to 'walking' now, but I am keeping my fingers crossed, and saving money.. just in case it kicks the bucket.
