today we had the pleasure of Trinidad and Tobago vs England in a soccer match staring David Beckham, i took this opportunity to try out my new da*50-135 and things was going great, until at the end of the match i decided to get a close up pic of Beckham. so i some how weasled myself onto the field, as i noticed i reached that far i ran straight up to David Beckham, with my cam in my hand, he gave me a pose of the centry, and bammmmmmmmmm,

the battery went dead

Moral of the story - make sure you have back-up batteries. (Note to self - go out and buy a second battery for the K20).

the amazing thing is that, i had a fully charged back up battery in my bag, but at the end of the game i wentby the fence to get a closser pic , which is when i saw my window of opportunity,

when i reached back into the stands every one was cherring to see what i thought i had acomplished, until i broke the news, then it was :P

i would say the moral of that story is

Drinking and photography dont mix

After having that happen (fortunately, though, not on anything really significant), I now have five batteries and two chargers for my two cameras. I seldom go out of the house without first putting in at least one new battery, either in the camera or the battery grip.

I can sympathise. I think it's happened to most of us at least once, but on an international soccer match......arrgggghhhh!
