Default Chapter 1

To professional photographer Martin "Camel" Johnson, there were only two things worth photographing, and one of them had just thrown his Nikon across the room and stormed out the door.

Martin was torn between chasing after one of the most beautiful women he'd ever met and finding the fate of his beloved Nikon. He slowly walked over and picked up the Nikon.

As Martin stared down at the cracked and battered body of his Nikon, he heard the roar of a high powered engine and squeal of tires from outside. Slowly shaking his head he looks over at his two startled assistants and mumbles, "All I said was I wanted to try shooting raw this time."

Knowing the Nikon to be make of the sturdiest stuff on earth. He was very glad he didnt get that Fuji S2. Although, if he had, it would still be going to repair cause the CCD died.

Martin put the Nikon down and looked at his assistants, Mary Lou and Lisa, two elderly ladies from the local rest home who had volunteered to help Martin for two hours each day.

"Ladies," Martin said with a frown, "you are both older and wiser than I am. Why are women so much fun to photograph but so difficult to get along with?"

Mary Lou looked at Martin and noticed that his twitch, which he had been able to keep under control for some time, had come back with a vengeance. The flickering screen in the background was showing a popular Digital Photography Review site and confirmed her worst fears - the Canon Eos-1Ds Mark II was actually 'quite good', at least as good as his beloved D2X now lying dormant in his hands, and only $2500 more expensive.

Lisa, noticing that Mary Lou was mesmerized by the screen in the background said "We are not difficult to get along with. Women would just like to be treated like you treat your camera gear, that's all."

Martin let out a huge chuckle and replied "It isn't gonna happen, ladies."

"I'm sorry but the Nikon Guru JDart is no longer here, he switched over to Canon."

Martin dropped the phone after hearing the news and did not know what he would do now.

After a few minutes standing in silence, Martin walked over to the computer monitor where the review of the Canon 1DS Mark II appeared in white letters against the black background of the photography forum. He clicked his mouse a few times to get to where people were discussing this new multimegapixel wonder.

He saw comments like "Phil's a Nikon guy," "Bad News for Canon," and "About to sell all my Nikon gear."

Perplexed, he turned back to the ladies.
