    I have a 5300, and it takes photos just fine -- except for ONE PLACE!

    There's a local supermarket here called Stater Bros. and, while I
    haven't tried this at other markets, my camera will NOT take photos of
    long-stemmed carrots! I tried to snap a photo of them at the Stater's
    by my house, but no luck. It says "processing image", then it just
    disappears and shows the last photo that I took.

    I tried it SEVEN TIMES! no luck. So when I was at a friends house 40
    miles away, I tried again at the Stater's by her house. Nope. Doesn't
    work. I can take photos of bellpeppers, pumpkins, onions! NO CARROTS!

    I have since tried this at 6 different Stater Bros. markets, and it
    never works. My friend tried it with his 8100 and it works fine.

    I know this sounds absolutely stupid, but when you have a moblog, you
    find yourself taking odd photos.

    Can someone, anyone, the next time you go to the grocery store, please
    try to take a photo of the long-stemmed carrots. ..landscape, not
    portrait. Then let me know if it works.

    wow, this post sounds crazy, but I swear it's a real anomaly!

    Stater's ROCKS! Very friendly and quite reasonably priced.

    Have you tried Albertson's or Ralph's? I personally am partial to Ralph's,
    as it is owned by Kroger Co. and I used to work and shop at a Kroger's in
    Ohio. You may have trouble with the onions at Albertsons and Ralph's, however.

    > I know this sounds absolutely stupid


    Stupid isn't the word, really... I think "inane" is a better description.

    Ummm, I don't think so. You should go back on your meds.

    however.

    And I won't set foot in albertson's until the strike/lockout is settled.
    Ralphs I'll go into since the pickets were removed.

    Since Stater Bros isn't this far north, I have the ever-so-stuck-in-the 80's
    Save Mart to shop at.

    And I'll shop at either one. Do you realize what kind of money the UFCW
    members make down here? In some cases, twice as much as what they make back
    where I'm from, and the cost of living, unlike elsewhere in California, is
    NOT higher in the Apple Valley/Victorville area than in other parts of
    the country.

    They're pissed about paying $5/week for insurance ($15/week for a family),
    instead of getting completely free insurance.

    That's what the strike is about down here, anyhow.

    Plus, it's UFCW, and I had the *cough*pleasure*cough* of being forced to
    join when I worked at Kroger's - and I found them to be absolutely useless.

    So, I take great pleasure in crossing the picket lines because the union
    is worthless, and the picketers are being very, *very* stupid. Perhaps
    they should all move out to Cleveland and make $8/hour instead of $15/hour.
    Then they won't be complaining about a small deductible that they have to
    pay for their health insurance. In some cases, they'll be lucky to *get*
    health insurance.

    Sorry about the off-topic rant, but the situation really frosts my balls.
    The strike is motivated by greed. Nothing else, just greed. (I will support
    labor strikes when I think support is warranted, and I'm not, as a rule,
    anti-union. I just hate UFCW and think the reasons for this strike are
    ridiculous.)

    OBTW, the union backed off from Ralph's temporarily. I think they're back
    out at Ralph's.

    Unbelievable! My employer (who is typical for large employers) pays 75% of
    my health insurance cost. This means I pay $75 per month (single person),
    plus $15 for each visit and prescription. I think it is fair for employers and
    employees to share the cost.
    I'd like to hear from the Sprint reps what they are paying for health insurance.

    almost exactly what I pay (best buy). I was kind of pissed at the
    strikers too, and would've crossed the lines had I not lived 2 houses
    away from a Stater Bros.

    My 5300 is perfectly happy with carrots but it doesn't like broccoli.

    I wasn't going to post this here, but my friend kept saying "just POST
    it, maybe someone else has noticed the same problem!".. ..not carrots,
    mind you, but just certain color combo's not working.

    So c'mon Bob! go try the carrots.

    Lest than That, When I was working at Sprint, Co-pay was $10 per dr. office
    visit. all together Health Insurance, Vision, Dental, Life insurance, all
    that, was less than $20 a month.. Same Thing for Verizon Now. I think they
    cover 90% of health insurance.
