I’ve had my Fuji S2 Pro (a Nikon “Franken-camera”) since the early days of digital photography. Maybe 10 years ago. A year or so ago, I bought a Canon Rebel XSi as a back-up clinical camera.
Today, I heard a “POP!” And, then I smelled the pungent odor of fried electronics. It still lingers hours later. It really did stink! Maybe the Fuji S2 had enough of the camera-jealousy? Here’s what I discovered:
No foul play is suspected, and it appears to be self-inflicted. The Canon had a good alibi and was in another operatory at the time.
I’ve got a nice collection of Nikon lenses for this camera. It’s the camera I used for my “cosmetic dental / fashion” photography. So, now I have to decide whether to commit to Canon or resurrect my Nikon lenses with a new Nikon body. Will discuss with my friend, Andy Thompson at www.NormanCamera.com.
Update October 26, 2014:
The dentist next door retired and GAVE me his Fuji S2 Pro! And, that’s cool, because I prefer this camera, especially for portraits!
