    Have been interested in armature photography form many years, but neve really spend enough time to get good at it.
    My serious cameras started with a Olympus SLR film camera that is used through the 90s and early 00s. It was a camera that was not particularly reliable but I did get some good pictures. Around 2005 I purchase my first Canon camera following my sons rave review of his Canon camera. From then until recently my EOS300D has been faultless. Then about a 2 years ago the kit 18-55 lens decided it did not like Zooming anymore. So I purchase a used EFS17-85 which lasted about a year before the focusing ribbon decided to give up, I decided that this was a job for the professionals and paid a lot of money to have it fixed. This then was delayed because of lockdown so I decided to see if I could fix my 18-55 (nothing ventured nothing gained) anyway i could not go away anywhere anyway. Suffice to say I managed to fix it. Then I realise my Camera has decided it wants attention, the plastic pin that control's the sub mirror has snapped ( as I have just discovered curtesy of google). Looks as though I shall have another challenge when we go into lockdown again!
