I do have several cameras, but I wanted to get a little digital camera...nothing expensive, just something to use for posting pics on eBay that uses a memory stick for easier uploading. I came across a Jazz JDC64 Multi Mode Digital Camera which also gives you the ability to taking some video. As I mentioned, it is just a cheap little camera on sale for $50.00. So, I thought that was all I needed for eBay purposes. And I thought it may be nice for a young child's first digital camera, if I was happy with it.
When I got it home, I started to read the instructions (Because I've never used one with memory sticks or video before). I started on Page one of the instructions, you know the usual parts Identification, installing batteries and all that boring stuff. I got to the battery installation and was floored by the way these instructions were written. Yes, they were written in English but if I just told you HOW it was written, you wouldn't believe me! So I had to scan a page of the instruction book so you can see for yourself!
You will notice the lack of and the misuse of periods and commas. Misuse of words and even missing words! Are there any proofreaders in these companies anymore? That's as far as I went with it. Once I read the page that I've posted here, there was no way I was going any further. I packaged up the camera and returned it to the store.
When I returned the camera, I told the woman that I DID open it. She asked what was wrong with it and I told her. I told her the instructions are in English but written so poorly, you can't even understand them. She laughed and said, "Maybe it was made in China". I told her it looks like they were written in Chinese. She refunded my money with no problem and said she had two other people return the same camera because the pictures were all blurred. Yes, they say you get what you pay for...but for fifty bucks, I didn't even get fifty cents worth!
