It’s with extreme sorrow that I announce that my beloved camera, quantity, has kicked the bucket.

It has been acting weird for a while, so it was inevitable, I guess.

At the women’s Big Ten Swimming Champs, I took quantity out to shoot some video and saw a mysterious “Cover Opened” message. The weird part was that nothing was “open” on the camera. As a result, I couldn’t shoot video or pictures.

I took quantity to Cord Camera to get an official diagnosis. Turns out that the sensor that detects whether or not a cover is open had gone bad. And to make matters worse, quantity’s manufacturer, Kyocera, went out of business.

Now I have to win the lottery in order to replace him. I blame shopathometv.com for folding. They really fucked my shit up.

So, I guess that’s that. Quantity was a good and loyal camera. Captured a lot of fast swimming for me over the past 3 years. Thanks for the good times!
