Casualty (6/365)


Happy Friday the 13th!

I took a lot of photos today that could have been interesting, if not for the fact that there was no memory card in my camera. One thing I’ll say for Canon is their cameras scream at you if you end up in this situation! Nikon flashes a little red “demo” label in the corner of the LCD and otherwise happily chugs along.

Oh, and this happened:


I treat my cameras badly. Mostly I’m just a klutz, but I’m careless, too. I just really, really wanted to take care of this one. On the bright side, if anything was going to break first, I’d have chosen this. Everything else seems fine, so the hood served its secondary purpose of protecting the lens from casual impact.

And also? Right now I’m really glad that Nikon included a lens hood with both the lenses I bought. In case you were looking and needed a tiebreaker.

I really don’t know how I feel about this “Sh*t XXXX say” meme, but this one — well, it hits the mark in so many ways.

I did not make this! Though I’ve pretty much lived it, and also, I’m bisectional.

  • My nikon d80 will bitch if there's no memory card in and refuse to take a picture. It's a configurable setting in the menu though so you might have to find it and turn it on.

    Glad you only lost a lens HOOD and not a lens!

  • I'll look for that setting. Thanks!

    I felt so stupid after the thing-that-broke-the-lens-hood. So I'm really glad it was only the hood, because it was totally my fault.
