Well, it was bound to happen. I bought the camera in 2000. Now, while it looks in tact, one little piece of metal or plastic or such has come detached inside the lens compartment. It doesn’t look like it was dropped, although, it probably has been during its lifetime. So now, all we have are our phones. I have been wanting to get a new video camera, that uses memory cards. I’ll have to look to see if they can do reasonable double duty. Otherwise, we will be looking to replace it. I haven’t done much comparison yet. I do like Olympus, Canon, Nikon, and Kodak cameras, but I’ll look at something else if it can put up with the wear. Someday, I would like to get a serious hobbyist camera, like my sister’s someday, but that is a little pricey for now.
