And you missed the opportunity to invent Cloud Boot, and become richer than Bill Gates.

I very agree with you

A good salesman always seems to know less than you. And gets your money for letting you know it.

A local auction site was advertising a cheap point and shoot, (no PASM) camera as a top line job with an inflated price, I questioned the price, quoting realistic prices, Thanks (I think) to my input the camera failed to get any bids.

Most of the clerks, in the jerk your chain super stores. Really don't realize there's a battery, in their digital watch. Much less know anything!, about the products they con off on gullible customers.

A friend purchased a decent DSLR, but refuses to learn how to do anything with it but shoot in full automatic.

They have identical twin boys, so many of the photos are of two of them.

In full auto mode, the camera chooses the most shallow depth of field it can. Therefore, a majority of their photos have one child out of focus.
They complain about it, but refuse to do anything about it.

So even with good equipment, you don't get the results you want unless you spend some time learning about it.

I'm very thankful for this website, you guys have taught me so much!

Merry Christmas.

Sometimes!, with the I don't want to know anything attitude. A simple P&S camera will be the best camera. A DSLR has advantages, only! for those who know how to use them.

But! that is not what a super-store sales clerk; will tell you.
