My camera decided it was time to stop functioning properly this weekend so I have very few pictures. It has tried to die on me a few times already and I’ve been able to breathe life back into it, but this time it seems to be permanent. I kill cameras quickly and this one had the longest life span of any of them at almost two years. My cameras take serious abuse as I carry them around the farm with me all the time. They have so much dirt in them it is unreal. I was able to breathe some life back into this camera a couple of times thanks to my dad removing about an acre of dirt out of its guts using compressed air. Unfortunately that fix isn’t working this time. My poor cameras get dropped on the concrete aisle of the barn, they get wet, knocked around, banged against things, dropped in the dirt constantly, really they have no chance at a long life.
I do have a new replacement camera that will hopefully get put into service tomorrow. Needless to say I have very few pictures from the weekend since I was without a camera for most of it!
