Recently we have had a member wanting to use his camera in a way the manufacturer didn’t make it to be used. In this week’s AP there is a letter from someone who upgraded a camera only to find that it wouldn’t do something the buyer required. Now, I can understand that some things are difficult to research and products turn out to be unsuitable but I do wonder whether some people are looking at expensive items and assuming that they have all the bells and whistles. Many years ago I bought an amplifier that turned out to have insufficient gain so other equipment didn’t work properly. I also managed to buy a car that was a dead loss, I should have rejected it, I thought I had researched that purchase properly. It turns out that the manufacturer had implemented technology that wasn’t well publicised. All I can say is that, if in doubt, you should find someone who owns what you intended to buy and ask every conceivable question. I wonder what the two people in my first paragraph will do?
