Well, there will be an interruption. I did take photos every day. But apparently most of them did not get written to the card.
Apparently, the error code I’ve been getting (CHA) is actually fairly common for the Nikon D70 series, and it means “the camera can’t write to your card and nobody at Nikon knows why.” It has nothing to do with erasing pictures one at a time, not formatting the card, or any of that. Photographers who have only ever formatted the cards in the camera have the same problem. It’s more of a problem on faster/higher capacity cards, but once it starts, it seems to get progressively worse until you get to the point where I am – the camera’s recording about half or fewer of the pictures I take.
So a few days went by where the pictures are either black, or just not there. Nice. Our whole trip to the zoo with the Glanns – gone. Stuff around the house – gone.
So… 8/31 thru 9/5 – all gone.
