Left the Nikon behind for today's wedding assignment. Took two A900s.
Everything was fine until I went to shoot the first dance at the reception.
Outta nowhere ... the dreaded "Camera Error".
Reboot didn't work. Fresh battery didn't work. Different settings didn't work. Different lens didn't work. Waiting didn't work. Cooked.
Just does a whizz-whirr sound with a sort of odd delayed shutter sound ... captures nothing and the "Error" comes up on the screen.
I was freaked out that it may have corrupted the CF card ... but just the Error files were black ... whew!
First camera that totally let me down at a wedding in 10 years.
Then the second Sony flash failed on me! Just over-exposed no matter what setting I used.
Darned lucky I had a second shooter with me.
No second chances at a wedding.
BIG PITA to send it all back for repairs right in the middle of my most busy time.
Oh well ...
