On my trip to New Zealand, my camera malfuntioned!

I usually shoot all my pictures on "A", which stands for Aperture. I like to control my lens opening for depth of field as well as sharpness. I don't have the best lenses so I try to stop down at least one stop if not two.

1/3 of the way through my trip, my camera would not work on "A"! So, I switched to AUTO to see if that worked. It did! So, for the rest of my trip I shot everything on AUTO.

After looking at all my pictures, I've come to the conclusion that AUTO was not really an inconvenience after all!

Proves that not all is lost when a problem occurres.

Just a malfunction of a control wheel that only let me shoot in AUTO. Now fixed for $ 200.

What happened to your camera, why can't it work on Aperture Priority but works in Auto?
