Hmm . . .
I'm starting to think my camera is getting past his prime. I suppose it's not surprising, the poor thing has been through a lot these past few years.
Although he does seem to have a new lease of life now I've got a polarizer doohickey thing. The past few days he'd been over exposing no matter what I did, but that seems to have stopped with the polarizer. I don't know weather it's the dark glass counteracting with whatever's going wrong, but it seems to work. For now at least.
I'm reluctant to change camera after the whole Nikon mess, whereby the SLR was soooo appalling, I had to re-sell it (it was bought from Jessops who promptly went bankrupt three days after purchase) and wasted £600 of savings and got £400 back through re-sale.
Can anyone suggest good a Digital SLR (I mean really good) for a novice like me but doesn't require thousands of pounds in the bank. Obviously, I know, the more you pay the better the camera . . .
