It’s time for a rant.
I would like to give it up to Canon for being really great at sales. Like Apple they have managed to convince people that they to can be like pros, look like pros and create work like pros if they only just buy the latest device for the low low price of $999.99 or $1999.99 respectively. LMAO. I have watched people buy these cameras and set them to the ‘P’ setting. They take photos with the flash always and with an f-stop of 5.6 – 8, aperture of ‘auto’ and a shutter of 125. I shake my head b/c they could have bought an Olympus pre professional or KODAK EASYSHARE Z915 which look like an SLR but for a 10th of the cost and with better results for the quick photo snapper.
I rest assured though that, even though those who are susceptible to advertising are be running around with professional devices, my expertise and knowledge will still be needed and valued. I know this because though they may have the devices and the money they still call me to help them out or teach them and because it is not their passion as it is mine, they forget.
Well Happy Snapping
