Well there were other factors too. He was the editor in chief of the yearbook that year, which was actually something new we were doing with the new supervising teacher. The thing that bothered me was that HE seemed to out of the blue. I was working alongside kids who had done yearbook all three years, yet it was that kid's FIRST year! And also, I don't think our personalities matched well anyway.
You're right, I'm just making excuses, but that's how it happened. Remember I was using a D70 back then with my crappy sigma lenses. Maybe if we had gotten along better I could have "borrowed" his stuff once in a while :^)
Errr...on special days. Usually when I'm shooting sports or something like that. But actually on a day-to-day basis I use my D70. The school doesn't have any cameras. The last one broke today. I was sitting in homeroom when two 7th graders come to me with a camera. They told me it's not working. I look and see that the color is messed up. Not a white balance or LCD problem, something different. The pictures looked infrared. I'm cracking up as we walk to the supervisor's room until I realize how bad the situation is: that was our LAST camera. There was a big French student event that day, and I was not happy about it not being covered.
The cameras were something from HP, around 6mp, take or give. All I know is that they were really, really crappy.
Do you have any recommendations for new ones? They yearbook is actually quite profitable, so we can afford new cameras. Problem is nobody's doing anything about it.
