I am a photographer. I have an attachment to my favorite camera, which is a Nikon D750 that I received at Christmas. My husband and I both upgraded to them at the same time. Two weeks ago I was taking a walk and it started giving me a beam of light across all my pictures, then locked up and gave me an ERR message. A quick check of the owner’s manual on my phone told me that such a message means it must be sent in for repair. What! I have to ship it away!
That is exactly what I did, I took it in to the Camera store to be sent in for a warranty repair. The shutter had locked up. Now every photographer has a backup camera, and I have mine…the D80 I was shooting with prior to the D750. Ron (husband) was leaving for a trip and made sure my batteries for the D80 were charged, and he took one charger with him as he carries a D90 for backup. We weren’t worried about not knowing where the other charger was, as I had my D750 to shoot with anyway. Then it locks up. Now I’m not doing as much shooting because I am trying to preserve battery power.
What I can’t figure out is where the charger went. I swear I will never let that man put away anything important again. One year he handled hiding a Christmas present for our son, we didn’t find it until almost a year later! Now he knows he put the charger in a box, doesn’t remember what box, doesn’t remember where the box went.
So, that is my past two weeks. The frustrations of a photographer who has temporarily lost their favorite camera and is trying to preserve battery power on their back-up as they have no charger. It has to get better from here…
