    Hmmmmmm...., well, we'll see about that. You're right when you say what I really want, but time will show.
    My former FinePix died after 6 years.

    ....i don't believe this discussion ends here. The Fuji will soon be your 2nd camera because i am convinced you're fixed on... you will see, when there is enough money...

    ...that will always catch us, if we wait too long. I was stating "i will wait until these flat screen TVs get cheaper" and in the meantime they invented Full HD, LED, DVBT and what the heck else. Now i am in serious problems, because the old TV will also shut down in some days, making noise and shaking the screen right now...

    It is good to put a budget right in place, if you start thinking about an investment like this.... or at least begin to put it together. The moment you have to buy is always wrong...

    I guess you're asking if I can plug 220V straight into my camera...?
    No, I can't.

    It may well be some sort of a problem connected to the battries, because this started as I changed battery.

    Anyway, I'm now loaded with an Olympus µ760, 7.2 megapix and 3 x optical zoom, for the time being

    Thank you both of you for having me in your thoughts!

    Well, repair is not an option, because the camera had a price of NOK 3.500,- when I bought it, and now the much better FinePix S1500 sell for NOK 2.300,-and I don't want to spend money on a repair of something nobody knows what is...., yet.

    I'm fairly lithargic right now, but I do so agree with Cecilia, this is not and we can all end it with
    (And yes, I enjoy J-O's sence of humour).

    Oh Sterkoder, what can I possibly say . . . what an extraordinary thing to happen just at this particular moment in time. Like your camera was trying to tell you something! But as someone who is very into saving up for things and who takes a lot of time making choices, my heart really went out to you.

    But then I realised just how nice it was that pakarang was teasing you. You know, it shows how very much your photo-mentor is proud to hear you say how completely lost you feel without a camera.
    So instead of ending this with a I'm ending it with a .

    I guess repairing wouldn't be an option. That could turn out to be rather expensive.

    Strange how the camera just decided to die on you.... (did you capture something illegal on those last shots....? )

    Are you trying to give me a heartattach on top of it all...??

    I took some test images of the city in darkness, then the sign of low battery charge came into the display.
    (Thought that was strange, as I charged my batteries last week).
    Well, I changed to new batteries, checked date and time and if the power was ok. Put my camera in its bag and drove home.
    When I tried to load the images into the pc, nothing happened.

    The camera is totally dead. Not a sound, not a light, no nothing no matter what buttons I press.

    Have to go to the shop Monday and buy myself a new camera.
    I can take the Fujifilm FinePix S1500 just like that, but if I'm going for a Canon450D with a reasonable lense (up to 200mm), I have to ask for a payment in rates over two-three months.

    This is a disaster!!!

    What happened before it died? Did it just stop working? Is there any life in it at all, or is all the functions just gone hay-wire?

    Oh, ok..., I read the ad in todays Dagens Næringsliv one more time, and you're right. The offer only stand until tomorrow.

    So..., this is what it's like to not have a camera....
    I'm sitting here lithargic just stearing out in the air. Don't know what to do. Fiancé trying to cheer me up

    Wonder what interesting vessels will come to Kristiansund now...? Maybe I can take a walk along the docks and have a look....

    I know, my small problem is nothing compared to what others are struggling with in our world. I know.

    You guys must be tired of this back-and-forth about me never buying a new camera.
    Today, just 30 minutes ago...., my old camera died!!!

    Have some pictures in it, but not a sound, no reaction or no nothing happens when I turne it on....

    (There's a huge photofare in Lillestrøm near Oslo soon, and now the shop FotoVideo sell their Canon EOS 450D with 18-200mm lense for NOK 4.995,-).
    Sorry Sterkode. It was this week, and the last day is tomorrow.
