Lush Surroundings

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 June 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Yosemite Falls in Yosemite Park.

Ended up taking a brief hiatus for a while but I have returned. If anyone has any idea on how to keep a broken, cheaply-made bettery/memory card compartment door for a Canon camera closed, that would be appreciated. The door is intact and on its springs, but internal latches were broken off and cannot keep door shut. And with the spring on the door as strong as it is, duct tape loses EVERY time.

Photo taken April 17, 2008.

I want to sit there and feel the spray... lovely image. Steve, maybe it's not so expensive to get a new latch for that door?

That's a shame about the camera door. The camera takes great shots. This one is beautiful!

By the way, will and elastic go around the camera?

Barbara from Florida, United States

Breathtaking. Magnificent capture. Someday!
Sorry to hear about the camera. I like the elastic idea at least until you can find a better plan. Or remove the spring and seal with tape for now. A hassle but you don't want to miss any shots.
Wish you luck.

Nice shot, well composed and framed! (Perhaps reduce the compression a bit, artefacts will disappear). Sorry about your camera, I would ask customer service, perhaps they know an inexpensive solution.

Very impressive! As for your problem, there are different categories of duck tape, try to get the professional quality, and use enough of it. A friend of mine uses liberal amounts of duck tape on his perfectly good camera to ake it less inviting for pick-pockets....
