My New Camera…

So I may have dropped my Canon SX 270HS one too many times this year… At one stage it landed face down on the beach on Dollymount strand and the lens would not retract.

Now, I’m not equating a BT advert with a solution to metal health issues, but I think they were on to something with the talking.Anyway, watch this video, not just because I’m in there somewhere, but because it’s a brilliant track about a very serious subject.
