Kerosene Heater Problems : Halogen Heater Electric Heater.
A lengthy story of what happened to my Olympus SP800UZ camera
My SP800UZ crapped out on me while I was doing field work at the Firth River in the northern Yukon. I think what had happened is that some moisture had gotten inside my camera during the night when the overnight temperatures had gotten chilly at the Firth River (between +4 to -1 Celsius). On the morning of August 23, 2011, when I turned on my camera to take some photos at the camp, all I saw was a completely white screen on my camera. The guy whom I was working with suspected that some moisture had gotten inside my camera, so he suggested that I fire up the kerosene heater inside our kitchen tent and leave my camera in the tent so that everything inside my camera can be dried. About eight hours later, I checked to see if my camera’s screen was working again, and all I saw again was a completely white screen. I then tested to see if my camera still took photos and videos, and I had absolutely no problem taking photos and videos with it. Despite trying everything possible in an attempt to fix it, I still couldn’t see anything on my camera’s screen, so I was basically taking "blind" pictures and videos with my SP800UZ camera from August 23 onwards. After flying from the Firth River to Inuvik on August 29, I took my camera apart to see if I can find the problem, but everything looked fine inside. So I put my camera back together and hoped that the problem would eventually fix itself before I travelled to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for the Labour Day long weekend of 2011 (I am now in the process of uploading photos and videos of my recent Labour Day long weekend trip to Vancouver). As the Labour Day long weekend got closer, the white screen problem on my Olympus SP800UZ camera would still not go away. I then phoned my dad and asked him if he can purchase a brand new camera for me in Whitehorse. My dad said he would look for a camera and he would get a camera that is designed specifically for the outdoors (i.e. a shockproof and waterproof camera). I mentioned to my dad that that I would meet him at the airport in Whitehorse so that I can trade cameras with him while flying from Inuvik to Vancouver (I first flew from Inuvik to Whitehorse, and then connected to another flight from Whitehorse to Vancouver on the same day....Friday, September 2, 2011). After my flight from Inuvik to Whitehorse landed, I met my dad and we traded cameras at the airport. I took my new camera with me to Vancouver while my dad took my SP800UZ camera so that he can also have a look and see if the problem with the screen can be fixed. My dad took the camera apart and he said that he unfortunately couldn’t find the problem that’s causing the screen to go completely white. I then said that we shouldn’t worry about the problem anymore, and I would simply replace my SP800UZ camera with another new camera. Thus, my SP800UZ camera is now a total write-off. One of the features that I really like of the SP800UZ is the powerful 30X optical wide zoom. My SP800UZ took HD videos that are very clear in sound. I bought my SP800UZ camera at the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in September 2010 for a total of $350. And now my $350 has gone down the drain. :-( The camera that my dad purchased is a brand new $300 Olympus "tough" TG-610 camera (of course, I reimbursed my dad for the cost of my new camera). I tested my new TG-610 camera while I was in Vancouver during the Labour Day long weekend. The photos that my new TG-610 takes are really cool. The photos are very clear in detail. The only beef that I have with my new camera is that even though it also takes HD videos, the sound quality of those HD videos is a bit shitty, so I am thinking of purchasing another camera later on (i.e. another camera that is very similar to the Olympus SP800UZ camera, while keeping my TG-610 camera so that I can use the TG-610 while doing field work and/or camping in the outdoors). Lesson leaned, folks. I will never ever take a fancy, expensive camera with me again while doing field work, and/or camping in the outdoors for a few weeks (unless the camera is specifically designed to handle the harsh conditions of the outdoors). The chances of moisture building up inside a fancy camera, and a few electronic parts are then fried inside the camera, are greatly increased when you stay in the outdoors for a long time. Thus, I will only be taking my Olympus TG-610 camera when I do field work and/or camp in the outdoors for a long period of time. This self-portrait was taken with my new TG-610 camera on September 9, 2011.19/365 - I dislike KeroHeat
These medicines you see is a result of the kerosene fumes that got in my lungs. It made me quite sick and I had to see the doctor for it. He gave me a steroid shot, an inhaler, and some antibiotics to see if my lungs will clear up of the kerosene. The doctor was concerned that my lungs may be damaged by the fumes - I hope not. As you know, I've been documenting how cold it's been here and that I had to get some kerosene heaters and unfortunately, I had problems with the KeroHeat. That's why I dislike KeroHeat - specifically the CV-2230 unit.
