Why Are Local Camera Stores Failing?
Aug 31, 2012

Today I went to a local camera store wanting a wrist strap for my GXR. When the dude behind the counter asked how he could be of help I told him I was looking for a wrist strap for my camera. He asked me, "A DSLR or a point and shoot?" I said neither. It is a Ricoh GXR. He had no idea what a GXR was. He asked again, "DSLR or point and shoot?". I explained to him it was neither. It is a mirror less camera, perhaps closest to a DSLR sans mirror. He seemed dumbfounded... I.e., he had no clue what a mirror less camera was, let alone a GXR. This is Carson City, the Capitol of Nevada.

I fear for my extended stay here... Lord please get me back to Boise!
