All of Bill’s photographic and video equipment was laid out on the crocheted bedspread.
“I know Bill’s going to take me,” the Pentax SLR said. “I am the most sophisticated camera here.”
“Great,” said the long, telephoto lens next to the Pentax. “Then he’ll probably take me, too.”
“Hey, what about me?” objected the Olympia SLR.
“You’re old,” said the Bell & Howell 35mm. “I think I’m the perfect solution…compact and lightweight.”
“Excuse me,” said the Samsung Maxima. “I’m compact, lightweight, and digital! No futzing around with filming and developing.”
“Fuhgeddaboudit,” said the Sony video tape camera. “You stills are so one dimensional. I can catch all of the action, not just snapshots.”
“Hold on a second,” said the Chinon digital video camera. “I use an SD memory card for my video images so that Bill can shoot his videos and easily upload and edit them on his computer. I’m the obvious choice.”
“Shh,” Bill’s coming,” said the Snappy.
Bill entered the room, pulled out his iPhone and took a picture of all his photographic equipment. “Now that my iPhone can take great pictures and videos, let’s see what I can sell all this junk for on Craigslist.”
