IMO, I would do my own research on something that appears to be very important to you.

How can you possibly expect a sales associate to be up to speed on every key feature of every item in the store?

I don't, and think I stated as such.   What I do expect is not to be given wrong information. A "I don't know, let's figure it out" would have been  a Perfect response that I would have respected. Ultimately I do my own research, in this case I had the opportunity to follow it up with a hands on confirmation of what I believed to be the cameras abilities.

Perhaps you have unrealistic expectations....

perhaps. Am getting old and crotchety. Certain sales practices that rub me the wrong way include:

lying, making things up to get the sale

hard sell

denigrating competing products
