My Sony – THE DEATH OF A RED HOT SIREN!

Our camera is officially DEAD! Not really dead but it doesn’t take pictures anymore and shows an error E61:00! Boo-hoo!
Solutions from the web including whacking the camera several times on a semi-hard surface (Yea right.. is that like to make sure it’s totally spoilt beyond repair and you need to buy a new one??!) only to find the zoom function working in a haphazard wonky way :(
So dear reader… what camera shall we get to replace this one?
Sony Malaysia doesn’t want to sponsor our new camera even-though we take such great shots! hah.

Alamak.. so many functions coming up in the next few days with no camera.. who wants to loan me their camera for the weekend ..? :(

Woe is me and I AM WOE.

  8. Julian Si says:

    CONDOLENCES :-(

    Yesss… CANON G10 rocks ;-) Ask L! I use a G9 and lurrrve it, when I am not lurrrving my larger+bulkier+heavier D80 that is :-)

    on the same page!

    Girl! Two words…Gee Ten!

    I’d say Gee Nine like mine but it’s out of production already. ALthough if you go to Low Yat Plaza can try luck. But if not, the Gee Ten babe…a bit chunkier but the photos are AMAZING.

    This side of a DSLR, you’re not going to get better!

  11. CUMI & CIKI says:

    allan/nigel:
    it’s a sign.. if i see the word G10 one more time i tell ya..:P

  12. Tummythoz says:

    By d comments above guess it’s going to be a ‘fun-eral’. Hapi shopping!

  13. lyndssey Margaret Sage says:

    get a nikon D80 one of the best!!

  14. Julian Si says:

    Digic 4 processor, a true 5x zoom wide angle lens (28-140mm equivalent.), Face Detection
    , 14.7 megapixel capture , RAW format files editable in Canon Digital Photo Pro , ISO up to 1600, and an ISO dial which now wraps around the mode dial, and strangely (uniquely?) an Exposure Comp that has its own dial!

    Uh … Geeeeeeeee Ten! (again)

  15. mimid3vils says:

    May ur Reddie RIP~~ Amen~~

  16. Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy says:

    I’m going to sign on as another user and say GEE TEN! ;-)

    Seriously babe, the Gee Nine is already an amazing camera. The Gee Ten takes it that step further. Get it! The depth of field and the options you get are at a level where you can blow up to poster size.

    And RAW! No other camera this side of a DSLR shoots RAW!

  17. Life for Beginners says:

    Oh no! You poor thing… but maybe it’s the Big Guy Upstair’s sign to you to head to bigger, better things… i.e. DSLR?? :)

    I think you take fantastic shots already so if you’re armed with camera that can keep up with you, then… W.O.W. shall be the result, no? ;)

  18. CUMI & CIKI says:

    thx everyone for ur comments! will consider all that has been said when we go hunting for one:D

  19. Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy says:

    No la not dslr for you la babe. Lugging that thing around can give u permanent neck ache and u love candida which a good prosumer would handle well. ;) Gee Ten

    aiyooo.. try KLCC sony centre 1st ya? Sony’s cams is quality stuff..shouldnt hv prob like tat without a solution..unless of course,..u want to get a Gee-Tennn.. heheh

  21. thule a.k.a leo says:

    u don’t need such a high performance camera… not to mention bulky. Canon ixus 870 is good enough… 10megapixels… Digic 4 processor, and loads of specs… check this out.
    My opinion is that Canon takes good quality picture compared to other brands… lol!!! My personal opinion that is… coz I’d used Olympus, Nikon, Pentax before…

  22. backStreetGluttons says:

    While all those imaging cos line up to have you press and stroke them one by one , we offer one or all of us to just take pixs at your leisure or more if that is your command…

    Olympus is great , its modern , slim & cute and also got red ones to pamper you endlessly

  23. Sugar Bean says:

    I’m using Canon Ixus 980, it’s quite good. Guess you can consider about it. Happy Easter! ^^

  24. Big Boys Oven says:

    hey I think they will sponsor, you need to ask someone who is willing to . . . . . I got mine sponsored! :)
