My camera which broke almost 2 weeks ago will be repaired at Olympus – it will be a heart-and-brain transplant (mainboard) which will cost about one third of a camera replacement, so it’s the reasonable thing to do.
Until then I can sometimes borrow a camera from Mitchie or from Zuleikha, so today I used 2 of my studio strobes and Mitchie’s E-M5 Mk2 to take this photo:
Here’s a recommended new album from my fellow Wikiloops musicians, just published yesterday by “WhiteDrum55”, a master drummer from the US of A:
Clicking on the image will lead you to Wikiloops where you can listen for free. Downloading for non-members was 2,40€ when I last looked, this will also give you a printable cover like you see on my albums.
So my camera is in Hamburg, at Olympus German headquarters to check what’s wrong, and to estimate how much a repair would cost.
And without borrowing any of my older cameras from Zuleikha who now has most of them (my E-520, my E-PL1, and Mitchie’s E-PL5), I still have what almost everyone has (and carries around, I normally don’t do that) – a “smart” phone with built-in camera.
In my case that’s Mitchie’s old Google Nexus 5 which she gave to me after I bought 5X models for her and for Zuleikha. So this evening I just grabbed that phone and took a photo of Mitchie’s:
Not too bad for a really small sensor 8MP device – if you don’t “pixel-peep” (and who in his or her right mind would do anything like that? 😉 ), it’s actually usable.
So now I’m waiting for Olympus Germany to tell me a number…
