Camera breakdowns...
I'm wondering whether anyone has ever had a camera breakdown on them in the middle of a shoot / trip / holiday? Anyone had a camera break down at all?

I must say I have never had a camera or accessory fail on me yet (touch wood)... Probably the closest I've gotten is the old "run out of juice in the battery" or "hang on while I delete some photos" situation...

Share your experiences!

some of the equipment was the
i was also ok in most of them, i got in trouble a few times for this. but most of time i got real great shots.

My G1 has had trouble because the battery door latch doesn't seat properly, causing the camera to stop functioning until I can jam it back in.

Also an internal screw came loose, causing the zoom lens to get stuck. I took it apart, found the screw (but not the screw hole! Smile ) and put it back together. Works fine, except for the battery door.

The 10D has had some troubles before, usually with 3rd-party lenses. After a rapid series of shots, the camera shuts off and resets itself. No loss of images, only a brief loss of time.
Everybody got to elevate from the norm!
Never had an issue with a digital camera, but twice on vacation I have had a film camera's film advance motor go out. Once on a canon and once on an olympus. Both were Compact camera's.
