Talk about Timing!

I don't know if I mentioned here that I had lost my secondary camera. I've been looking for it for a close to a month. I was pretty sure it was around somewhere, and I had looked everywhere around the house I could think of, to no avail. I didn't feel too pressured, since I still have my main camera that I like best.

Except as of this afternoon, that camera isn't functioning. I've had trouble with the zoom for weeks, and I was working around it by turning off the camera to get it closed.

Today on my photo walk I closed it to retract it and it wouldn't open again. I'm hoping it just needs recharging, and I've got it charging, but I think it's broken. I walked in the house from my walk, knowing I needed to find the other camera. Within five minutes I found it where I know I've looked several times before and not seen it. Guess I'd better find some time to declutter. I also need to find a camera repair shop if they still exist locally. I'm just really happy I found my camera just when I needed it.

That is true serendipity! emoticon :smile: Glad you found the other ok and hope the first one is easily repairable.

I need to recharge my video camera so a friend can make a video for me I can send to my 50th high school reunion committee.

Glad you found your camera. I have a similar situation here. I have an RCA VHS movie camera that went dead on me years ago and has a cassette VHS inside it. It will not turn on to eject that tape and I can't find a way to recharge the batteries because the recharger is dead. I think the camera has an input for an AC/CD adapter. I will have to take my Camcorder to find out how to get it to work or otherwise this camera will be history.
