After taking a few exciting shots yesterday, my camera completely crapped out. Basically, it would not start. It seems to be a common model with a camera of my series and people usually experience this within the first few weeks/months of purchase and thus are covered with warranty but I'm already 4 years in.

So what happened? Well, my Canon Rebel XS (aka 1000D) would not boot its display and when the viewfinder was used it'd just say "Busy". This is known as Error 99 and it's caused by the firmware 1.06. Wellll, my lazy ass did NOT update my system and this just happened. If I had updated, my camera would have been fine.

This is a lesson for all of you.

So what's the next course of action? Call Canon, see if they can repair it for free. There's not a single canon store in the area which is really fucking unfortunate. Users online said that the repairs they were quoted ranged between $200-$300 which is the cost of my camera (a used one runs $280+ and is of the same quality/wear as mine). Some users said that helpful Canon techs were able to reset/upgrade their system to 1.07 for $20 or so. That'd be fucking great but idk. I saw only 1 person say this. I considered taking the camera apart and resetting its memory somehow but i'm not sure if that's possible.

This is really shitty :/

Hey, I'm Antonin. I'm an artist, a writer, a designer, and a developer.
I've started creating art by picking up an HB pencil about ten years ago. And as I moved through life, the media that represented the inner depths of soul transformed with me. I picked up a pen to write, I picked up a computer to write even more and to start designing. I picked up photoshop to transform the photos I created when I picked up my camera. I picked up Illustrator to design beautiful websites, logo, and more.
Now, I'm at a stage where I picked up a text editor and instead of writing the beautiful words of poetry in it, I write code, beautiful concise, and clean code. :) Who knows what's next for me?
