Firstly, the function buttons on my Nikon D3100 have not been operating too well for a while. They have now given up so I need to get the camera repaired as I can't access the menus. Need to get a quote for repair.
Secondly, My compact camera has now developed a fault. There's a lot of noise on the LCD display in the form of horizontal lines which are also coming out on photographs...could be a sensor problem.

As a result I have not been doing much photography recently.

The compact camera only cost about £90 a few years ago and possibly not worth repairing and I had been thinking about upgrading soon anyway. I have therefore ordered a new compact... A Sony RX100...which I should get in the next few days.

Hope to post some more work up soon.
