Whilst at the Band Concert on Saturday night the LCD screen on my camera ceased to function. On further investigation it would appear to be beyond economic repair (now, there's a surprise)! The only practical solution is to buy a new camera body. The camera itself works ok, it's just that the tilting LCD screen is such a useful and integral feature of the camera, for it not to work is very frustrating.
I have set the camera to a 'point and shoot' mode and Mrs MD has kindly offered her camera (see extra) for me to use - Bless her :-)
