Today I was at the stream "Norrån" and took the photo you can see here. When I took my tripod and camera to move a bit further down the stream the camera fell out of the tripod and landed beteen two of the stones in the water. Camera ruined and water came out of the lens.


This will ruin my #beas365project where I take one picture with the camera every day. An activity I use to quiet the brain, stress down and just have some time of my own. I'm not a photographer but I love to take pictures, I want to learn more, be better in the technical era of photography but I'm quite happy with my eye for pictures. But some days I have taken some really bad photos due to no time, bad weather etc... but that is life. Some other days I have taken a lot of pics I really like and then it is hard to select one for the picture of the day. I really want to pursue that the rest of this year.

I will problably be able to lend another camera for a day or so and in worst case revert to an old crappy camera bur I would like to continue my project with a good camera so the pics can be used for something more that Instagram. I do dream of an exhibition further on when I have learned more.

The ruined camera was a Sony a6000 so I primarily only ask you for help to buy a new one but I do dream of a Sony a7RII (SEK 29988) or a a/6300/a6500 (SEK 10000-14000) but I can't really ask you for that, or can I? 

I can't offer much more than pictures in exchange for your help but If you want an A4 print of a pic I can probably get help to fix that. I can also give you good tips on how to photograph auroras and best places to be here in Sweden for that. Hey I can even join you up in Abisko for guided tours if you get there.

It will be hard to take good aurora pics without a camera that handles it. And by hiking book also need good photos.

If you can't contribute you are welcome to follow the albums and encourage me to continue my quest for the best picture of the year.

As I don't have a Facebook account my self I wish you can help me to spread this via your accounts. 

I thank you in advance!

Feel free to ask questions. I can give more details why I'm asking for funding this way if you want, I have blogged a litte about it in Swedish here.

Thanks all who donated to my campaign this summer. I got enough money to buy a new version of the lens that was destroyed.

A friend of mine lend me a camera so I could continue taking my photos. Now I have managed to save enough on the side to buy a second hand camera (2 year old Sony A7RII) from a friend who bought a new camera.

Now I have to start saving for lenses to that camera but my old fits but gives a crop factor. But my economical situation is so much better now when I don't pay 11000/month to go to and stay in Stockholm every month.

I'm so grateful to all of you who contributed not just for the money, also for the encouragement to continue to photograph.

Have a lovely end of the year!

Regards, Béatrice

More than halfway through the funding for reinvesting in the same sort of camera that took the plunge in the stream. Im fine with that even though it feels a little bit sad to invest in a more than three year old camera again. Well well I can always dream at least.

Yesterday I borrowed a Sony a7RII from a friend and tested with my lenses on it. Investing in a full frame camera when you only have APS-C lenses will cost you some extra money for buying new lenses. But I also know that Sony had been smart allowing you to mount the APS-C lenses on the FF and the camera adjust. But you will lose some resolution. For comparison:
NEX-5N (crappy old camera I'm using now): 4912x3264 (16.1 Mp)
a6000 (dead camera): 6000x4000 (24 Mp)
a7RII (dream camera): 7952x5304 (42.1 Mp)
a7RII (dream camera) with APS-C lens: 5168x3448 (17.8 Mpx)
But in the end you have the body for superb photos and lenses can be bought quite cheap on the second hand market.

Thank you all who have tributed so far!

One weekend with old crappy camera. The lust and urge to go out and photograph isn't there right now. But at the same time I really don't want to stop the project. I'm so grateful for the donations so far and will have to find a way to get me a new camera. Maybe I can buy it with a payment plan.
Without new camera there will be nothing like this upcoming autumn/winter.
