so I need to chalk one up to "learn about yer toys little man..."
We went to the Winter Fun Day... games, hot dogs, horse drawn sleigh, blah blah blah... I whipped out the vid cam and .... and... nothing... lover-ly all white... bright white images on the camera.
With two kids and a zillion things going on I just could not put the cycles into figuring out what was wrong (and the back of my mind was screaming "great! buy a camera on e-bay and it breaks...")
Turns out... all that was wrong was this wee tiny "exposure" button had been pushed or somesuch and it was all hyper bright... When we got home... I gave that button a push and bingo... all is well again.
Ah vell... Z got some pics with the still cam... :D
