Haha Derek I was planning on returning it but i only paid $18 for it and would likely eat up most of that in shipping! Plus the little cuties has grown on me. It would have been a great deal if it worked right ;-)
I have specifically wanted a 'beach camera' (as the grit in my om lenses is killing me) and maybe that is what this will be, giving me a taste of the Pen series.
Thanks eurekaiv for the help. I just need to now decide whether I let it be or fix it. I think it is time for me to shoot a roll on a sunny day and then decide.
