Every digital Camera, no matter what Functions it has, always comes with a Power Button. It really is not that useful, all it does is to turn the Camera ‘On’ or ‘Off’.
My Problem lies within that Function. Off Course it is good to turn a Camera ‘Off’ when it is not being used to safe Battery Life. But when I am out Shooting, I usually try to stay as far away from it as possible.
I really hate it when I discover that my Camera is not powered ‘On’ when I want to take a beautiful Foto. That is absolutely annoying. Especially when something Special happens that just can not be repeated.
Sometimes, when my Battery is Low, I have no other Choice though. I have switch that Switch to ‘Off’ so that I can shoot anything at all when I want to do it.
I have lost several Opportunities that Way. I really do not like it to lose Foto Ops.
The Problem with not turning ‘Off’ my Camera while I am shooting is that I then sometimes forget to do so when I am done. I usually only notice that on the next Shoot though, when my Batteries are empty.
Usually, I make a habit of bringing Spare Batteries. Sometimes, I forget those at Home though, or they are also not charged. Luckily, that happens rarely.
Maybe I need to become a better Friend to the Power Button. Or maybe not.
