That's a good story. I just took one of my younger cameras, a Canon,
to get repaired. I think it's from the seventies. I picked it up
yesterday. Mike, the camera fixing wizard, pointed out the Green A
on it! He also showed me how to use it. What a concept! I am going
to try it today.

Now, what about that auto focus thing I've heard so much about? And
something called memory cards?
