my camera has just died. Baaaaaahhhhaaaaaa. :o(. There is no way i can get a new or 2nd hand one either. I am just devestated. Looks like i will only be voting for at least 2 yrs (by the time i save for one)

That's definitely sad. Happened to me too. This summer on the first day of our vacation, my G2 stopped extending the lens.

What about just buying one of the less expensive models. The low end of the Canon line is <$200. My son has the A60 and it takes very nice shots, and has a lot of adjustments/features. Or perhaps start watching ebay for used deals and refurbs.

If there's anything we can do, let us know. Perhaps we can find 200 of us or so willing to chip in $1 (gee, that's no more than a can of soda).

Just let us know how we can help.

Lisa - 2 years! Damn. Why so long? Hey, if things are that tough I'm in with Neil on the $1 a head. You gotta have an outlet!

Not my auction, but i have the same camera. Takes great pics, and you can get one on ebay for under $50.

Yeah yeah, 1.3Mp...plenty for DPC, can print 4x6 too. Fully auto, but it does a great job at that!

there are all from that camera

and this one
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/16648/thumb/148406.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/16648/thumb/148406.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Another option..get a job waiting tables. weekends. most places you'll make $100 a night, maybe more. In 5 weeks you'll have a grand - get a new Rebel 350!

you guys are all so kind. Makes me want to weep.
Remember i am in australia, so cameras are dearer here. I dont know what i will do. I definately know i cant afford one. We barely get by on the money we get now. I just have to suck it up and get on with it.
Thats life.
lisa
thanks once again for the kind thoughts.

C'mon - we can do it. Can we all get this lady a camera?
03/08/2005 01:05:54 AM · #9
dont worry, i didnt say it because i wanted sympathy. I just needed to vent. I will say that i am crushed though. This is the only thing that has been keeping me from getting depressed again.

Honey, if enough people will chip in, I'll buy it and pay the shiping to get it to you... Oh and I got a fiver on the table with your name on it too.

please dont. I cant handle it.

Just a thought, maybe if some kind soul here had a point and shoot laying around after upgrading, this would definitely be a good cause. Just something to get you by for now. I gave my S50 to my son or I'd consider that.

I personally know what it is like needing a hobby and not having the equipment. I was blessed with a family that found the money to get me my camera. For my blessing I would be gratefully to help another. I don't have any money in my paypal account but I will transfer $5.00 to it tomorrow [you know it takes about 3 to 5 days to post] and donate up to that amount to your paypal account lentil for you to use toward a camera. All I ask is that you put your soul into your pictures and share them with us.

If I can add right, we're up to 16 bucks and I'll cover shippin'...

Let's do this somehow. I have seen how much the membership meant and it was worth every bit to me now. We can do this. TC - if you come up with something let me know. If not - I will try another tack.
03/08/2005 01:17:21 AM · #17
SDW65 and Toocool- I'll see your 5... can't raise ya anymore though.
03/08/2005 01:18:46 AM · #18
I'm going to sign off now - but I will check in the morning. We WILL do this.

Well I proposed $1 because I was "sure" we could get 200 volunteers without any pain at all. Let this thread run, but personally, I don't have any problem giving up to $5 as well.

why on earth would you guys do this for me? You dont even know me. Kylie knows how hard it was for me to accept her paying for my membership let alone getting a camera. That is beyond way to generous. Sure i am upset about the camera but i can get by on voting. Really i just needed to vent because i knew you guys would understand.

Hi,
We can't make you accept this offer but I believe in helping others. God knows I have needed help and received it from friends and family. And yes I consider DPC users a group of friends regardless of background, geographical area, point of views, etc. I have PMed you and if you wish to accept my offer, its there, all you have to do is PM me back. Good luck.

Do you have any idea how many cameras I have given away in the last five years? It doesn't seem a big thing if you think there is a chance it might be put to good use.

What camera did you have?
03/08/2005 01:37:01 AM · #24
count me in, tell me where and when.
you cant be without a camera doris, its just not right! :)

There's a $10 bill (US) here with your name on it Lisa if needed.
This is a network of like-minded people, sharing a common passion.
I've already kicked in on 2 walks and did a gift membership and this should be no different.

PM me with an address and I'll get it on the way if you need it.
