Default Asking for help...To keep pictures coming...

As some of you may have seen in the other thread, my camera died the other day at training camp. The shutter motor failed so it is really now just a couple pound paperweight.

From doing some looking this camera has an average life of the shutter motor of 40-50,000 pictures, since our site has over 45,000 pictures, I am guessing this camera has taken over 60-70,000 pictures, so I guess I should be happy it lasted this long. I should also be happy it died when it did...During training camp rather then our Monday night game...

Don't worry, I am going to be getting a replacement so our site will continue to exist and keep providing pictures for you.

We have never wanted to have our site be a pay site but with having an unexpected ~$1000 outlay right before the season, I have added a donation page to our site that will hopefully help offset some of this cost.

Click here to donate...

Anything that you can give would be great...Thanks...

You are the only keeper of Texans photographic history. I would hate to have that go away.

Default Re: Asking for help...To keep pictures coming...

Just to let everyone know what I have already offered to the people that have donated...

Quote:
To thank people for this I am planning on providing anyone who donates at least $10 will get a CD at the end of the season with a selection of pictures from this up coming season of many of the great pictures that I hope to get. Once you donate and provide me a mailing address I will send you a CD with 50-100 of my better pictures from this season. These pictures will be the full sized pictures without the watermark that is on the website.

As part of this, if there are any pictures this season that you want to see on the CD let me know during the season and I will make sure that they make it on the CD or are sent directly to you.

Again thanks for helping me out with this...
Since I am already going to be sending one of these CDs to Denmark...Don't think you are too far away to have me send you one.

Just an update...
New camera has been ordered...Should be here hopefully by Friday...

12.1 Mega Pixels compared to the last one being 6.1, the pictures on the site will go up in size some, but they will still be smaller then the originals since we only have a limited amount of bandwith.

But for the people who like seeing the following of action shots...The new camera will take 4.5 pictures per second. So I don't expect to miss the action...But don't complain if I miss something...Because I am sure I am going to miss something someone wanted to see...

There's apparently something wrong with the new one. There isn't any football stuff in the picture. ...go back to the old one.
