Posted:My old camera went absolutely insane a few months ago just before I went to Utah in August. It picked and chose when it wanted to take photos, refused to zoom, deleted at random and sometimes simply didn't turn on. Turns out that the control card was wrecked (how, I do not know. I treated that thing like glass.) and would have cost 100 to repair, so it ended up being cheaper just getting a new camera.

I have had my new camera for a week. I have taken 48 pictures with it, 90% of them blurred. The zoom stopped working three days ago and it hasn't let me take a picture in two. I'm taking it back to the shop tomorrow to get it sorted.

Why do cameras hate me so? My computer behaves in a very similar way, although not quite as extreme. None of my CD players work anymore and my personal CD player doesn't ever work as it should for more than 5 minutes. Technology is allergic to me.

Meh. Rant off chest. Much better.

Posted:people can sometimes have funny energy that interacts badly with technological things.

how silly does this sound? i know. but it's true.

a friend of mine had a similar thing happen. only, his job was to fix computers. how shockingly horrid when suddenly he was making them worse just by being in the room.

i can't remember the exact details about how he over came it. but there was something involving a metal braclet. maybe copper.

you could always try a healing kinestiologist, they can put your energies right!

Posted:Sounds possile. I've heard of people giving off energy that drew metal objects to them. This problem has only developed in the last 5 months. Hopefully it's just a coincidence, or this energy thingy will wear off. Don't seem to have affected anyone else's stuff (mind, I spend less time with it) and my phone always works fine.

It's cameras. Cameras hate me.

Posted:My housemate (who used to work lots with cameras and stuff) says that if you get on ebay, you can get really cheap manual (not digital) cameras for next to nothing as everyone is going over to digital.

So go find yourself a bargain!

Posted:It's cause they spend time with you, and you spend time with me, and so you know about my camera, and they throw a hissy fit about it wink

Or am I just bragging about having a cool camera? Oh who knows...

As for the energy thing, I knew a guy who could apparently blow up speakers. That's an impressive claim. Never did see it myself though so can't say it's more than a rumour.
