Back from vacations! I wanted to post something about it before leaving, kind of tell what I intended to do, but there was not time. I talk about it latter, also with some pictures.
Now to the camera. Yep! For the first time in almost 22 months I don’t have my loyal Canon 60D with me. I just left it for servicing.
Not long ago I’ve noticed that the rubber grip was getting loose close to the shutter release. First I thought “whatever”, but than it started to extend and I was able to feel the blisters all over the holding. Checking the internet about it, it was clear it was a known problem (DP Review discussion about it).
That, together with another known problem, the hot shoe switch that is not released after the speedlite is removed, made me pay a visit to my usual dealer, who informed me that it could be fixed in the camera’s warranty, but it had to be send to the (suspense movie music tan-tan-taaaaan) authorized service!
The problem is, believe it or not, that the Canon authorized service for Germany is in the Netherlands!!!!! And this, of course, means a lot of time for any repair. Up to 6 or 8 weeks, depending on their load.
So, I decided to do that after the vacations + events I have on summer and coming back I would leave them the camera, hoping to have it back in less than 6 weeks.
Of course this “absence” is weird and I have the constant impression that something great to shoot will happen on every corner, now that I don’t have the camera with me. Maybe it works as detox hehehehehe
Let’s see! Eventually this will give me the opportunity of working on the images I have in my hard disk, or to write here about coffee!
