And it was RED! Yup it was my baby. I have had it for 2 years and in all that time it has treated me wonderfully, given me some great memories and super clear shots. Well apparently when I turned it off the last time The lens jumped off track. According to google this is a common problem. So I hopped on the phone and Called Target extended service warranty center. Oh did I forget to mention that this camera was a Christmas gift from my parents and that they were kind enough to also buy the 3 year extended service warranty at target! Well I get a real life human within minutes, (a record nowadays). But she doesn't have good news for me Nope it couldn't be that easy EVER. Because the most common way for the lens to go off track is someone bumped into it Target is unable to fix it! AHHHH But she kindly connected me to Nikon so they could help me. So I get connected to Nikon and again get another very kind lady on the phone who tells me my only option is to send my camera into Nikon for service. AHHHHH... This is insane. I am NOT happy atm with either Target or Nikon.. :(
So I google the problem and my camera and find out the only thing Nikon is going to do is replace the lens and for that they will charge me $95-$119 plus shipping BOTH ways! That is the same price to just go buy a new camera! So I let Hubby know that my camera is dead and since he works at sears (DISCOUNT!!!) He found me a new camera!! It is a Samsung in a cool purplish pink color
Normally $119 on sale for $71 minus discount plus 2 year warranty It totals in at $81 Woohoo! Right? He Brings it home we plug it in and let it charge all night...
Guess what.... It won't turn on!!!!Noooooooooooooooooo... Now I'm going to cry.. So hubby took the camera back with him today, That was the last samsung they had for that price so he will look around and see what he can find. I'm not getting my hopes up and I guess I will for the time being go back to using the dinosaur
P.S. So if there are any Camera companies that want me to reveiw a brand new camera I'm ready and waiting hahahahhahaha...
(It's worth a shot right????)
P.P.S. And if you want I will learn to use a digital SLR!! You could send me one of those!!!
