Cameras and Bird Stamps

As you may have read, my camera fizzled while I was in Costa Rica. The lens on the Canon S2 refused to retract and the screen just said "E 18". It turns out that the dreaded E 18 error is so chronic in Canon point-and-shoot cameras that it warrants its own website. Canon wants $175 to fix it and so does the local camera shop. Boo-hisssss. The camera only costs $225 new! I'm not sure what to do yet, but a new camera is probably on the horizon.

I've started reading To See Every Bird on Earth. The author uses postage stamps as illustrations. He got the stamp pictures from Chris Gibbins' amazing web site of bird stamps. Check out his identification corner for some good fun.
