During the raining/roof leaking incident on Sunday another disaster occurred. I went to fetch my camera on the basis that the zoom function might allow us an insight of the roof problem (that bit of our house is 'L' shaped and the roof of the bedroom a lower level than the viewing point in the spare room. I then fell over with the camera, which was switched on.
Sad result - extend lens bent out of shape and won't retract. Camera broken.
Irony - same problem that caused me to buy this camera to replace its predecessor.
Happy result - new camera, cheaper than the last with 14 megapixels to the old camera's 10.
Sadness - new camera not pink.
