I love going into PC World and messing them about lol, I asked ages ago how much a 6800 was...and they said they'd have to check the washing machine bit...

Then in Currys, a couple were asking what RMS stood for, guy said "Real Music Sound" ... oh god that was hilarious, my uncle then went over and corrected him - needless to say, the couple didn't buy anything from Curry's that day!

quite a lot of review company's get given equipment for free by the manufacturers as they get publicity for there products through the company reviewing and advertising it. Take TopGear for example with all the very expensive cars they review.

Hi guys, I'm afraid I don't own a shop or a ton of cameras!

All companies have loan stock which they lend to publications for review - then ask for back again. The camera companies knew me before Cameralabs though as I've been writing reviews for magazines for over 15 years!
