After many trips to many camera shops disguised as a I-know-nothing buyer, have seen many salesmen trying to smoke their way through to make me buy a discontinued product, or a new product at a marked up price. One actually tried to sell me this low-end digicam without a LCD screen by saying that LCD preview is not good! He said what you see in the LCD is not what you will get in your picture, so i'm better off without it. Duh! And he kept boasting that he has been playing with digicams for years so he knows best. I just gave him a weak smile and walked away.Originally posted by Ling Nightsky
i called them just now... and that person say Steven is busy so call back later... sigh... i really hope can exchange.... that stupid card error... i don't think Anthony did try out the new card using that 64Meg one that i upgrade to... i think he use his old card... gah, i don't really remember... and he didn't tell me there's no optical zoom coz initually, i want FujiFilm FinePix 2600Z but they don't have it coz it's not popular... hmmm, next time, must listen to my own instinct and not my mom or the sales person....
So when buying an expensive item esp eletronics, it's best to do homework thoroughly first, or get someone experienced to go along.
Anthony might have purposely not reveal the fact that the 40i has got no optical zoom, to lure you into buying a discontinued product. Not trying to defame him lar, jusy saying he "might".
