Hi there all,
As a salesperson in the camera field, I get to hear many varied things from rep's as to who actually makes things.
To give you a few ......
There are only two manufacturers of photographic paper used in photo labs such as Fuji, Kodak, Minolta etc.
The companies are both in France.
There are only 3 or 4 manufacturers of memory cards ... Sandisk is one.
80% of all p&s cameras are made by Sanyo.
I hear all sorts of things
I remember when Canon had a sub 1MP camera with no optical zoom and the rep said that the added glass
to provide the optical zoom would cut down available light
Another one, an Epson rep' said that the reason Canon have white lens barrels is to reduce the heat so the flurite doesn't warp.
"Nikon have white barrel lens too"
If I took the time to remember it all it would go on for a long time......
What do you know or think of things I have mentioned above.
Hit or myth
Interested to hear some feedback
