Well the streak of things breaking during this trip has yet to end. My backup camera (Canon 20D) has officially crapped out on me. Ironically it broke while I was shooting the same landscape scene that busted the shutter on my main camera (Canon 5D MK1).
I have less than 3 weeks left in Thailand before I go back home. All I have left now is my Canon HFS100 camcorder, which takes pretty decent photos for a video camera. But it’s still a camcorder and it lacks the image quality and usability of a professional SLR.
Fortunaelty for me my camcorder can shoot HDR images so look forward to seeing a bunch of HDR shots from my camcorder!
On a side note since both my Canon cameras broke during this trip. I am seriously considering switching to Nikon. It all depends on how Canon’s customer service handles my request. So far their customer service has been pretty good. However, I think that’s because Canon has to provide good service since the quality of their product sucks.
The only fear I have in switching to Nikon is their customer service. I heard it was pretty terrible. So the question I have to all my photography friends out there who use Nikon… Does Nikon’s customer service suck?
