The final photo?

Uploaded by: Tsurai

Friday February 24, 2012

Trinidad, CA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Right after I took this picture of the pretty rock, I fell into the creek. My camera (and I) got pretty wet. The camera is in pieces now, drying out in front of a draft of warm air from a heater -- we'll see if it works at all once it's back together!

Congratulations! All's well that ends well, Matt, or Little old lady from Pasadena. ;)

Happy snapping - can't wait to see what the new baby brings us!

When I took the D200 to the shop today to see if it could be fixed, the repair guy was not very hopeful. But lo and behold, he had a D300 with the f.3.5 18-200 in on consignment, a camera he said the old guy who'd bought it had only used twice (the little old lady from Pasadena came to mind). The camera was immaculate, and the price was about $500 less than I'd expect to pay for that body/lens combo. So now I am upgraded, and ready to go again! Whew.

Oh no, Matt! I know how you are feeling right about now. I see you have a backup camera. :)

Mine was not salvageable after the drowning it took (with the power on), but the lens was, if that is any consolation. Not a cheap repair, but cheaper than buying a new wide angle lens.

I too got the camera upgrade, so I guess things happen for a reason. Let me know if you need a referral for the great repair guy I (and got2dogs) use. Good luck!

Oh no, sorry to hear about your camera! I think you're right, it's a message to upgrade. Don't you love it when the message is something you want to hear?? ;)

A nice rock and water composition - the contrast of the solid and the flowing.

Chris, I'll contact Lori -- but I think this thing's going back to Nikon, and I'll spend a couple of hundred bucks (if it's salvageable). I was thinking about buying a new camera this year anyway. This must have been nature's way of urging me toward that goal!

Oh no! Hope it's not the final photo from this camera! Contact Lori (SVLover); she has first-hand experience with the recovery of soaked cameras. Great shot, BTW!

It was fresh water, MNT, and clean... So I just dried everything as well as I could. The lens will definitely have to go to the shop, though -- there's a fair amount of water in there.

Very cool and pretty photo.

Sorry to hear the news on the camera. Hope all goes well for you. Since you fell into salt water I assume, you may want to have the camera flushed out with distilled water to get the salt out.

I'm fortunate enough to live 'way up on the northwestern coast of northern California, an area sometimes referred to as The Humboldt Nation, or the land behind the redwood curtain. Work takes me on the road six months a year, but the rest of the time is mine to surf, kayak, fish, watch birds, and of course take photographs of this remarkable region.
