Rebel T3i Crashes

Who knew a Canon DSLR can fail on you?

Apparently, you can have a power failure on your DSLR camera.  The cause appears to be a broken sensor on either the battery door or the memory card door.

The cost of repairs out weighs the cost of getting a new camera.  It had been my plan to upgrade to a serious camera like the 7D, but now I will have to settle for a used 5D mark (8 years old) II or 5D Mark III (6 years old).

The one advantage of the 5D it is a full sensor camera, so there is no cropping of the image.  Essentially, a crop sensor acts like a magnifying glasses, giving you more of a zoom effect.  It can be a bit annoying when you are using 40 mm or smaller lens in order to get wide shots.

Fortunately, Henry’s has some used 5D’s in stock and I should be able to view them in a week or two.

I was also lucky to get the photographing of a piece for a submission to a local publication.  I literally got the final shot completed when the camera died.

I am looking forward to getting a better camera, but regret the unexpected cost.
