I went to get a new digital camera today as I have been meaning to buy one for a long time. I chose to go to PC World as it is relatively close to where I live.

After consulting a website which compares cameras and looking in store I went for a Canon A75, it seemed a good choice. All was going smoothly, the camera was demonstrated, money was getting ready to exchange hands, I was happy. I wasn’t even peeved when I was told that they were out of stock and I had to take a display model, although I did request a discount and was offered 10%.

After paying for the camera, along with a 256MB memory card and card reader I went home to play with my new toy (via KFC for a lovely Zinger Burger). There I took a few photos in my bedroom, removed the card from the camera and downloaded the pics onto the PC.

This is where it all cocks up…. I discovered that the photos were very, very dark even though the room they were taken in was very much light. After over an hour of pissing about with settings and modes I realised the flash on the camera was broken, F-ing marvellous!


My camera looks like this although mine is as much use as a used toilet roll….

So now I need to go back to PC World, speak to the brain dead employees (and lets be honest, they are!) and exchange the camera, trouble is they have none in stock!


Which isn’t useful for much at all really

They will of course order me a new camera which I hope to arrive ASAP so it’s not too bad. At the end of the day I suppose it’ll work out well, I was given a 10% discount for my ex-display model and I expect the replacement to be brand new. Not too bad, would still prefer a working camera now though!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
