I use to own a Canon Powershot, but I can’t remember what model number it was. I just came across this picture, and it reminded me of it. It was a great camera until… I forgot it was in my pocket and walked into the swimming pool a little to deep! To begin with I was standing in knee high water taking pictures of the kids swimming but then I put the camera in my pocket and forgot I put it there. well it never worked again. The camera tried to turn on made some noise but it was soaked. I am sure it didn’t help that I had dropped it on the ground earlier that year and the back cracked open a bit. It still worked after the fall! I guess it was just one of those years. My daughter was only a few months old at the time, and my son was 5. I usually am not that hard on my cameras.
All that to say I sure did love that camera!
