comment Would you try to repair this equipment?
Thank you for the usage info and the lens death story. My stories are boring, such as falling down on the ice and having a freak wind blow over a tripod. :)

comment Would you try to repair this equipment?
Thanks, but I'm wondering if this equipment is likely to be economically repairable or not based on usage. I live in a very rural part of the USA, rich in outdoor photo opportunity but poor in convenience, such as no cell service and being 400 miles from the nearest camera store. If these are likely worn out I want to avoid the expense of shipping them away for estimate, and will just continue to use them until they fail completely.

@rfusca - All 3 items. Expensive, capable of excellent results, but not designed for years of heavy daily use. I shot an outdoor concert July 3rd. Of the ~ 100 other cameras in the crowd only 3 were DSLR's and only one of them had a non-kit lens. There were no pro level cameras, just ~ 100 consumer point-and-shoots and 5 prosumer DSLR's, including my T1i and T3i.

Perhaps the card is bad, though it is almost brand new. I do what you do, create folders on the camera only, format on the camera between uses, and use the cards read-only in Windows. Thanks for your input.

comment Why am I seeing two JPG files instead of RAW + JPG with a Canon 1100D?
Thank you. I didn't know there was a Windows Imaging Component (WIC). It may be useful.

comment What is a Picasa alternative for posting to a website?
@dpollitt - Understood. But my posted question (my first btw) had "Noob" in the title and something like "This seems like it should a FAQ but I can't find it" in the text. I tried to make it obvious I'm new to posting questions here. The edited question makes me look like a self-promoting jerk. No big deal, just a suggestion to use care cropping a question to not lose its composition. :)

@rfusca - Thanks. I thought this must have been discussed.
