And I see no reason why it shouldn’t be expanded to include the photographic industry.
Owners of digital SLR cameras in the 6-megapixel category should get a $1000 rebate if they migrate up to a more efficient 10- or 12-megapixel camera, for example. That would stimulate sales. The Senate would probably want to prorate it at $200 per megapixel, but I’m sure an equitable formula could be derived.
Or maybe the people who bought film cameras after 2003 under the mistaken notion that silver halide was still a viable energy—I mean imaging—alternative could turn in their old celluloid burners and get a cute little modern compact camera that gets 300 shots on one SD card.
It would be so easy to advertise and promote. TARP would suddenly stand for Technology At Reduced Prices.
