One of the many nice things about Japan compared to Canada is that every electronics store will have a working display model for you to play with before you buy. They’re tethered to both an alarm and steel cable, so it’s not as if anyone will be walking out the door with them. But the things obviously get used by hundreds of people a day and can get pretty gross.
I don’t remember when I started looking through the memory cards on the display cameras. Ninety nine percent of the time you get pictures of the cameras next to it, or the aisle the display is in. Sometimes you’d get a selfie or a shot of a friend. Those are always like finding change in the sofa for me.
This lass was found in a camera shop in Osaka. I was there to buy my Pen E-P3 and this was the display model I was playing with. I’m pretty sure this is a selfie given the angle that emphasizes the eyes and makes the chin smaller. She’s obviously an old hand at this sort of thing,
I wish I had something a bit better on me at the time than the iPhone to take this picture with. If she was there maybe she could have given me some pointers.
