Strange Cameras

I am at an event. The room is dark. I am taking pictures. A person next to me whispers in my ear they are having trouble with their camera. They hand it to me. It is indeed a strange camera. It is large but not heavy. It was designed to look impressive but has features that are hard to use and a lens worthy of toy binoculars. The images are fuzzy, including a test shot of my shoes. Later I see the images from my camera and theirs side by side. The difference was startling.

Maybe a good carpenter doesn’t blame his tools, but that was a lousy camera. Of course a good carpenter knows enough about his tools to pick goods ones. Do your research and practice.
