The End of An Era
Julia, my D70, is officially dead.
I opened her up to do an Infrared conversion and tore a ribbon cable.
Now the rear LCD and buttons don't function and the CF slot is dead. She turns on, but there's not much use.
So that's it.
My D70 era is over.
I qualified for financing on a D700 (prenamed Sophie), but have decided to wait until my finances are a little more favorable given the recession. I should have enough money to get it by may.
So for now I am DSLR-less, but that does not mean that i not be shooting. By a stroke of luck, Harrison has loaned me an F2 and i've still got my cache of lenses.
While i might not be updating as often (like i was regular anyway) anymore, i'll still be shooting film and souping it at home and then scanning it. I'll be buying a super coolscan within the next few months as well, so things will be different but interesting.
In the meantime, i'm relishing my freedom from chimping :)
