I think the difference is that people do comparison shopping on Amazon and snap pictures of products or scan barcodes so that they can identify them and check prices.

Where I work, we used to stop people from taking any form of photo but now we just don't unless they're using a camera or video camera in which case we do stop them. If it's a cellphone we don't. that seems to have become the acceptable standard. I wonder how the Sony remote lens would work like that. I can imagine a load of voyeurs using them.

I've done that myself, snap pictures of products and prices for major purchases that I was shopping around for, not necessarily for price comparison but for making the product selection. I used either a cellphone or pocket camera and never go stopped. It was easier than writing down all the information on paper.
