Good afternoon. I'd like to buy a camera.
We have all kinds of cameras here, Madam.
What sort of camera are you thinking of buying?
Well, I don't know anything about cameras.
But my friend tells me that 35mm cameras are the best.
Well, they are certainly the most popular.
Would you like a rangefinder type or a single-lens reflex?
What's the difference?
With a single-lens reflex, you actually look through the lens when you are taking the photo,
so you can see exactly what you are taking.
That seems a good idea.
Yes, focusing is easier, too.
Try this one. It's a good make.
Yes, I see what you mean.
The image is very clear and bright.
Moreover, you can use a number of different lenses.
Let me put a telephoto lens on for you to try.
My word! That's very good.
I can see the people across the street as if they were inside the shop.
Being able to change the lens is very important in my opinion.
You can't do that with most rangefinder cameras, though they are smaller and cheaper.
How much is this camera?
The list price is 5,000.
But I can let you have it for 4,500.
That's far too much.
Did you say that rangefinder cameras are cheaper?
Yes, they are much cheaper.
Good. Show me some, please.
