    hahaha. Idiot!

    Rick wonders where he can find this guy, I have a Canon film camera WITH a lens, I could sell him for $15,000 and then he could sell that too, with a disclaimer than the camera came without a sensor.

    And just above his recommendation, "Essential accessories" - lenses and memory cards!

    Would he have bought it or recommended it to a friend if it came with a lens and memory card for another $4,795 maybe?

    He didn't read the fine-print: "Clue not included".

    One wonders if he saw that it had 40 megapixels and didn't go past that before buying it.

    I agree. The Disney reference is a good tip-off.

    Don't laugh, there are stupid people everywhere.

    I know a lady that decided she wanted to get into photography, hardly ever took a shot before, and she went and spent over $20K on some nice Canon gear.
    She got it home, started playing with it, and decided it wasn't all too complicated for her, and promptly put all the stuff away, never to be seen again.

    I was in Harris Computers a few years ago, and a lady came in to return her Photoshop CS3, to exchange it for the eariler version of Photoshop because she said that CS3 was too difficult and thought the earlier version would be easier to learn.........

    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
