I set my camera on 10 second self timer on the flat part of the fence and after the picture was taken, the wind gently pushed it off the edge and it no longer works. It is broken. (I love Canon cameras but it is not the first camera that breaks on me and it is always the same problem: the lens) That moment when the lens would not retract back, my heart has skipped a beat. I cried on the inside and lost a sense of joy for the rest of the day. Making memories through photos is a huge part of my life. It is part of my experience. It is part of who I AM!
At this moment, I cannot afford to buy a new one especially since I just received this one as a gift this past September. I have a small hunch that it will cost too much to fix it. What do I do, what do I do?
