Yes after 5 years long service, the trusty Canon Powershot A300 died.
Bought in a Montreal shopping mall in July 2003, travelled back with us to Scotland, then back to Montreal, then to Ottawa. With several vacations to New Jersey and Chicago, with a colourful life taking pictures around Scotland and the Carribean it's had a good life.
Died while in action on the Staten Island Ferry, en-route to downtown New York City.
