Rose tinted distortion

We bought a couple of Canon PowerShot A480 cameras this week for the students to use. As soon as they arrived, I set about testing them. Popped some fresh batteries and a memory card into the first one, turned it on, and then…

…found it was bloody broken.

How on earth does something make its way out of the factory like that?

    maybe they test them by taking a photo of a pink sheet of paper?

    You obvoiusly got a dispatch that was meant to go to the people who are responsible for BSF – They’ve probably just tested (yeah, right – BSF? Test?) theirs and have started screaming:

    “Noooooo! Realityyyyy!”

    • TheCrust says :

      Ah – I like that suggestion – I have often wondered myself if those working higher up within the BSF programme are all wearing rose-tinted glasses and as such require rose-tinted cameras to avoid looking a photos of reality.

      So what this really is is a dispatch cock-up: AT got theirs, they got his. :-)
