Yesterday after reading a few inspiring post, I decided I wanted to try and get at least 20 items listed in my Ebay store. I started pulling things out in between homeschooling and getting them ready to take pictures. My plan was to knock out at least 10 listings during naptime. I wrote up a few description, snapped a few pics, and sat down to start round 1 of uploading everything on to Ebay. Then I noticed the USB cord end that connects to my camera was sitting in it crooked. I got it to straighten up, but when I tried to connect my camera to the computer it wouldn't work.
You see, I had laid my camera on our kitchen counter stools. When I went to grab it, it was laying between the stools almost on the floor. My oldest daughter had unintentionally knocked it off. Had she seen it there, she would have moved it, but she didn't even know it was on the stool or that it had fallen off. I have a bad habit of leaving my camera all over the place. A habit that was created because I have kids who never bother items that they know doesn't belong to them. Apparantly, I need to start being more careful where I leave it.
So, now I must send it off for repair. I have a DSLR, so its not something I can just run out and replace. I'm planning on calling my inlaws and borrowing their camera. I've had suggestions of just using my phone camera. Has anyone else done this and how is the quality of the pics. I have a smartphone and I've taken some nice pics with it, I'm just not sure how well it would work for doing Ebay pictures.
