Sic Semper Bastardes

Image framed and captured perfectly, easily,
with the Canon PowerShot Elph 110HS

Here lies not the mightiest of cameras, nor the most useful, nor the most helpful.

Here lies a camera so confounded, so hardwired for pure cussedness, that none shall mourn its passing save my enemies.

Behold it, ye, frozen in this perpetually obnoxious state: never willing to fully turn on, yet never able to fully retract.

It could take good pictures, if you had a tripod and five minutes, between the hours of 8 AM and 4 PM on a cloudless, sunny day. As a point-and-shoot it was a barely sufficient paperweight. It was known for missing crucial shots, for being unable to focus in macro mode, and for secretly slipping into macro mode.

After a short life of avoiding work, it lays down to rest now, never to arise.

Damned be you, Samsung PL210. Damned be your soul to hell.
