I did not take this today. And, it was taken with my Canon Powershot G5, a camera I love and is now at the repairshop. "Someone" dropped my 300mm. lens and broke it and it, too, is at the Canon shop. This is the time of year I NEED the long lens for the baby birds. Does everyone get in a bad mood when their lens is in the shop?

Canon PowerShot G5
1/250s f/4.0 at 10.2mm full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

I get in a bad mood when I get the bill, particularly when it' my own stupidty.

I'm glad you rescued this beautiful photo but sorry to hear about your camera problems. Yes, it is very upsetting to be without a camera or lens.

Hopefully Canon will be rapid. I've been fortunate with my few experiences. So sorry Coleen.

Hi Coleen,

It's a very nice photo indeed, even if it was with your Power Shot.
And YES, I will have a heart attack if my 400mm F2.8 Nikon lens has to go into the shop! LOL

they look very top heavy!
I have 3 camera bodys and 2 200mm lenses, got to be prepared for break downs ;-)

Beautiful light you have captured on these shrimp boats, Coleen! :>))

To answer your question - YES!

It is frustrating for you, I'm sure. I haven't had anything repaired yet (knock on wood!)
This is a beautiful photo! V

Sorry to hear about your lens/camera problems Coleen, but glad to see this super image posted. Great light and compo.

Sad news but a beautiful image in that golden light!

I have a Canon G12 I use a great deal.
I'm concerned my 24-105 lens may need some repair (soft focus) so I' dreading sending that in.

Major bummer hope all is fixed soon

Wonderful image, Coleen. The g5 works very well.
Cindi Smith11-Jun-2012 02:34
Love the light in this. I hear y'all are getting the rain that hit here a few days ago. Wonderful image!
Dennis Hoyne11-Jun-2012 02:23
The G5 did a fine job on this, wonderful exposure, nice color.

I know how you feel, my 24-105 went nuts on me right when I got me new 5D Mark III. It did it two weeks before our cruise. I ordered a new one from Canon and had it shipped second day and after getting back, I shipped the broken one off to be repaired. Now I have two and will not have that problem again. Just wish I had two of every lens I have. Canon does do great work on them and it will be like new when you get it.

Nope, that's why I use the less expensive point and shoots, throw'em away if they break! :-) Well, not quite, it's like losing an old friend! Good luck, hope the repairs work to your satisfaction!
