All the digital photography I've done for the last seven or so years has been done with a Nikon CoolPix 990 that was handed down to me by my friend Oleg. I figure that if you mostly take pictures of guns, a camera once owned by Oleg Volk is a good thing to have, so why change? (Plus, I am nothing if not a creature of habit; if something works, I use it 'til it falls apart.)
Guess what I forgot to pack when I drove down to Tennessee?
So the morning of the LuckyGunner shoot found me in Wally World, figuring to pick up a cheapie digicam for sixty bucks or so, just to use for the shoot. By coincidence, the Turkey Creek WalMart was having a clearance, blowing out a whole raft of discontinued cameras. In a hurry, I grabbed one that looked half decent, (a Kodak EasyShare V1073,) for eighty bucks. I started to grab a battery for it, but the clerk assured me that it came with one.
And it did. A dead one.
Thankfully WizardPC had a 12V USB adapter in his car which he was gracious enough to let me borrow, else I'd have been a sad panda for Day One of the shoot.
I'll post pics as soon as I get home.
