Mein Kamera Ist Kaputt

It's finally decided that it no longer wants to play. In lower light there are obvious purple lines across the image and now in bright light the whites come out shocking pink. It looks like a still from a pop video from the early eighties by the Cure or Ultravox.

So I'm going to get a new camera, money being very much the object I think I'm going to get a Canon Powershot A550 I've seen some good reviews, it's a Canon so it's bound to be OK and I don't have to splash out on any accessories and it's very good value for money.


  1. Was was that video with Bowie in a clown costume on a beach? :-)

  2. That is actually a cool photo!

    When my Sony camera broke, it just gave me a black screen. Nothing nearly that cool.

    Sony fixed my camera for free. The CCD chip was defective.

  3. Ashes to Ashes with Queen I think, 1980 or 81 can't be bothered to check but I do remember seeing the video on TOTP.

    The camera will be out of warrenty now, It was purchased in 2003/2004 so it's done ok for a digi.

  4. I bought my Sony in 2003. It was out of warranty when the CCD died, but Sony fixed it for free anyway. It was the flagship camera of the Sony line when I bought it.

    Sony usually stands by their products.

  5. I like the effect on the photo as well! I bought a Fuji finepix and I don't know how to use it properly!
