Ooops, Dang It All, I Think I Just Destroyed My Favourite Digital Camera

what happenedOkay, let me start by saying it's really only my favourite digital camera because it's my only digital camera. Well, was my only digital camera as I just bought a new one this week, now I have to try it out to see if it's as good as the little Casio Exilim 10MP.

I only have 14 days to test it out and still be able to return it so I'm going to be very busy over the next week to see what I can do with it so I can make the decision to keep it or return it to try another.

The FujiFilm FinePIX XP20

FujiFilm FinePIX XP20This digital camera is water proof, shock proof, freeze proof and even dust proof. That says a lot and so I expect a lot.

The first thing I did was to fill a tub with mud filled water and left it submerged all night and then put it in the freezer, muddy water container and all, for three days. Then I threw the bucket out of my bedroom window onto the driveway to break it loose from the icy container.

Alright I made that last paragraph up, although the claims in the paragraph above that are right on the box and in the ads I see on TV. Not sure I want to put them to the test but it should help me from destroying another digital camera. Not that I destroy a lot of camera as my first digital camera was given to my son when I bought the Casio. So really I've only had two.

Fortunately I was able to use the memory card I purchased for the Casio in my new FinePIX XP20. And the XP20 is 14MP (megapixels). The LCD display window is slightly bigger as well.

How Do You Break Your Camera Jim?

So glad you asked. It's kind of funny really.

Casey and I went pickerel fishing last week, great trip, best of the year so far. Yeah it was our first day out for 2012.

redbank new brunswick culvertWell I was telling Casey how Jamie and I take the canoe through the culverts at Redbank which got us to thinking about going through with Casey's boat. The water was deep enough and the culvert was wide enough.

We went through without a hitch. Later when we returned we decided to go through the other culvert. I decide I wanted to take a video of us going through so I crouched in the front and kept my head low.

I was paying attention to the video and not watching the front of the boat. When it made contact with the side of the culvert I instinctively threw my arms out to the sides to even the boat up and smashed my camera against the culvert and that was that.

As they say, Shit Happens. It certainly didn't stop us from having a great day. BTW: I was able to retrieve all the images on the camera, except for the video of us going through the culvert. I would love to seen what that looked like. Check out our digital cameras
