The setting listed below is fictional but the main point is a real story.
Hypothetically, I'm working in a small printing firm, mainly dealing with menus for restaurants. Sometimes our customers will ask if we can take some shots of their dishes cos they didn't have one. My boss would ask me to take them because he knew I had a DSLR and had a bit of experience with it. I grudgingly agreed although made some noise about my camera having a "lifespan" (ie. shutter life) of which I wasn't being compensated for.
Two months ago, my boss then decided to get a DSLR for the company. He asked me for recommendations with a budget and I recommended a Canon system.
Last week he came back and smiled at me, saying he bought the camera. He said,'Oh, I bought a Nikon, cos it's a better camera. The guy at the shop told me a lot about cameras that I didn't know. That Canon's main business is in copiers while Nikon's is in cameras. That's why Nikon cameras are better. They know what they are doing. Which makes sense and that's why I bought a Nikon D90." He was all smiles cos he made an "informed choice".
Now I'm supposed to teach anyone who wants to learn to use the camera. Now I have nothing against teaching stuff like Aperture/Shutter/ISO. But being a Canon user, I made it clear that I wouldn't be familiar with the Nikon, nor would I be as comfortable using it. Didn't have the heart to tell him that the D90 may be reaching EOL soon and probably why they wanted to "clear stock".
What would you do? I'm gonna find out which shop is it that said the above...... to be updated.
