舉機準備拍攝,觀景器內顯示「FULL CF CARD」,於是我告訴他們"card is full",但他們英語不太好,可能不是很明白。
I pass a couple on the walkway of Paradise cave, they kneel down to fix their camera in the very dim lights.
After a while, came across them again.
The boy asked me to take a picture for them, yes, of course. They are using Canon 300D, which I used to have years ago, very familiar touch and feel.
I pointed the camera and ready to shoot, the view finder has an alert "FULL CF CARD", so, I told them that the "card is full". Apparently their English is not very good and cannot understand me.
At this point, Mat plays his role.
He first opened the SD card slot to show them that the problem is with the card.
Then, he turned on the LCD screen and played the photos. He then pointed at the numbers "98/98". Now the boy understood and thanked us for the help.
I think this is a good tactics. He could not figure out why the camera cannot shoot and needed help. To get help, what is better than asking something to take a picture with his camera!! Nice try!
