This little ball of light

This little ball of light


I took this shot early on Sunday morning, just before my D200 fell down in the pond. The Nikkor 12-24mm severely touched the ground and broke a little piece of metal in the lens mount of the camera body. After cleaning and drying every single element, my camera body can’t autofocus with zoom lenses anymore. It only works with fixed focal lenses. I’ll have to get this fixed soon…or buy a D300…?


J’ai pris ce cliché tôt dimanche matin, juste avant que mon D200 ne tombe dans l’étang. Le Nikkor 12-24mm a violemment touché le sol et a cassé une petite pièce métallique dans la monture d’objectif du boitier. Après avoir nettoyé et séché tous les éléments, mon boitier ne fait plus l’autofocus avec les zooms. Cela ne marche qu’avec les objectifs fixes. Je vais devoir faire réparer cela prochainement…ou acheter un D300…?

  1. This is a gorgeous photograph! And it is cool how the lower sun reflection looks like it is balancing on top of one of the weeds.
    Sorry about the camera though…I feel your pain as I have dropped a few cameras.
