Why do people do this?

Why would someone post a calculator for auction - described as in excellent condition - and go to the trouble of posting not one, but TWELVE photos - all completely out of focus! Hey, gang... You can select the LARGE version of these out of focus pictures if you need a better view. You still cannot tell anything about the condition, but maybe if you really squint . . .

I must be missing something.



Just because you HAVE a digital camera does not mean you know how to use it.

I think that Don S. is right. The pix appear to have been taken with a digital camera at an inadequate resolution, not out of focus.

aka "too close to focus"; the first picture is fine, but the seller obviously doesn't have a macro or wide angle lens :)

I agree, it's pointless to post those pictures...
