    Whilst at the Opticians Awards ceremony on Saturday night, which we won "Fashion Frames Practice of the Year" btw, my camera had red wine spilt on it! :mad: Even though it was wiped clean immediately & we were able to view the photos on it on the ride back in the limo ;) , it no longer seems to be working. :mad: again!!!

    Its a Fuji Finepix F445 & comes with a charging cradle. I am able to turn it on & view pictures when it is in the cradle so I thought it was maybe the battery. Apparently not!!!

    Any suggestions?

    Or, can anyone suggest a good replacement. Been looking at the Fuji F50fd.

    Hmmmmm, aren't you supposed to poor white wine over red when you spill it or is that just carpets????

    Well done! i bet you were well chuffed:clap:

    Congratulations Karen, that sounds like a fun night out too.

    On the camera, it depends a lot on how much you want to spend. I've got a Canon Ixus 850 IS, which is great.

    I had this website recommended to me when I wanted to buy one, and it's really useful:

    That should be enough to be getting on with. Hopefully you can get the old one fixed though.

    I have a fuji finepix too, but a couple of weeks ago i lost mine in the snow (whislt rolling around in it) and it was missing for a couple of hours before i found it again, covered in mud and snow and god knows what first i couldn't even view the pictures but suddenly it sprung back into life, perhaps after it had dried out a bit(??) and it seems to be working ok so far. i have read through my manual but unfortunatley does not give advice for spillages and such things!

    Have you tried taking the battery out, ensuring the contacts on it are clean and dry and the same with the contacts in the camera? Same with the memory card.

    First, I would think that the memory card is still good, and you can pull the pictures off of those.

    As for a replacement, I just got a Fuji Finepics 8000 for Christmas and it has been great. I have even got quite a few compliments on the photos I've taken. It was about $200 online (100 GBP?)
