Motor oil is *so* overrated.
We pay people to take care of that.

So maybe something broke beforehand and it wasn't worth fixing and that's all it is good for is looking a pictures. She or someone she knows must have an imaging device to put images on her card. Maybe the plastic mount broke on a kit lens and she doesn't know it is an interchangeable lens camera. And the added weight and bulk in her handbag may seem like a reassuring self-defense weapon to her.

Wow, and I thought I was hard on my cameras. But my abuse is to get The Shot so it's justified in my mind.

Yikes, this is making me feel guilty about how I treat my K30.

Changes are that body is dead anyway. Shutter, mirror, something like that. All that is still working is viewing images. Though really she should just copy them to her phone, carrying a DSLR just to view images is a bit... heavy.
