Take it to an ePHOTOzine members meet, whereupon you can say "Oh, my camera's broke. May as well go down the pub then."

I suppose we could have sat in the greasy spoon cafe on the Wirral listening to Anthony's camera. Although not broken, it did play odd tunes. Saying that, I suppose Matt's camera could have been broken - all it did was "take pictures!"

Ant - what was the name of that cafe?

Steven, I'm guessing it was on the M62, M57, M58, M56 or M53 given your contributions to another thread

M62, J11 - on the bridge pointing East...
Incidentally Tony, I keep meaning to get the camera out every time I come off there, I wouldnt mind a pic of the 'Encounter' artwork that's erected there. Although they have taken away the spotlights that make it glow cool colours in the night. It does double as a 3G mobile phone mast, too.
sorry, slightly OT

J11 ? Isn't that the (G)Risley, Burtonwood & Culcheth Turn off ?

I'm not familiar with the "artwork" in question. Having been living in exile in Hampshire for 3 1/2 years, my exposure to the m62 is limited to getting frustrated in the traffic jams over Thelwall as I aproach it's junction with the M6 as I travel up to visit my parents on the Fylde Coast

If it is metal bodied, attach a mains cable to it and leave it somewhere conspicuous to give some light fingered passerby a shock.
Hang it around the dogs neck and take his picture.
Put it on your desk to remind you what you could be doing
Use the mirror to check your contact lenses.

Seriously, use the self timer to trigger a second flash during slow synch photography.

Yes Tony, it is said junction.

What about trading in the broken camera for nice shiny new one - Jessops might give you 2 and 6 for it!

Cover it in Badger poo, jump up and down on it and then enter it for the Turner Prize

> Throw it at the neighbour's cat when it's sh*tting in your herb garden.

Thanks Bri, that made me laugh out loud! I'd also like to add

"Throw it at the squirrel that's eaten all the nuts you put out for the birds and has dug little holes all over your lawn to hide them all in" Smile

How about...
Save it for spares
Turn it into a clock (I saw an old Hasselblad 500C/M body turned into a clock once)

If you've got a camera that's bust!
and the cause isn't dampness or dust,
Don't be a dunce,
insure it at once.
Then claim it broke "only just"!

or

if any of you
are the man from the 'pru
I'm joking - in me you can trust!

That's right, so it was! Yes, it was a bit odd but it served its purpose. And the breakfast/lunch was quite nice. Just the job for a bunch of very hard working photographers who had just been stuck in a submarine!
