In the future, everything is a computer. This has consequences.

Yesterday, when I was at a model car show, I discovered one of the annoyances that happens when one is living in The Future, as we currently seem to be doing. I turned on my camera, and it didn't seem to be working quite right, and fairly quickly got itself into a state where it wouldn't retract the lens and just kept going through the boot process repeatedly.

So, after poking at it a bit and discovering that resetting it didn't fix the problem, I reinstalled the firmware, and that seems to have fixed it.

But it's a camera. Since when do cameras have software crashes that need to be fixed by reinstalling the operating system?
