It's cheaper and still works

Years ago, an old trick of the trade passed on by my father taught me that there is always one more picture left in a camera.

I have taken more than a few pictures with my camera over the years and gradually, the points where the batteries are located have become been worn and tattered. Consequently, there is not always a good connection when I put the batteries in the camera.

So here’s how to keep it going. This is what my father told me years ago. You are to moisten the batteries before putting them in the camera. Don’t ask me what it does, but it works. It’s a good way to stretch the batteries and get at least one more picture out of a worn camera.
