Ok, so most of u know I'm into photography. I used to do it as a hobby, but it's not turned into a pretty nice moneymaker for me. I just bought a Nikon D100 in October, and the camera has been a blessing. I've learned lots, improved my shooting ability, and overall had a great time with it...until now. The past few months, I've worked terribly hard to get my name around town. I've managed to do so, and things have picked up a lot for me. Recently, I've been added to the roster of a local magazine as one of their staff photographers. I've already done one assignment for them, and have 4 coming up in the next few weeks. Needless to say, my January is made. Well, my camera has decided to go against me. I didn't realize it last week while on a shoot, but the flash on the camera has become inoperable. I don't know what's wrong with it, and no one can give me a definitive answer. Apparently, no one has ever seen a flash go out like this without some kind of clue. The only solution has been to send it back to Nikon to be serviced...which is fine, except for the fact that I cannot be without a camera now. No one can help me out in terms of a loaner camera since I'm not a member of the Nikon Professional Association, and I'm stuck. I'm not downing Nikon or anything, I'm just frustrated at the situation. If I'm without my camera for any period of time, I'm screwed.
