One CANON EOS-5D MK III W/ EF 24-105 IS kit is $4000.  Add a Canon 600 EX RT and a bag and you are at $5000.  $5K doesn’t go very far.

It’s a bit reminiscent of Niagara Falls, Ocean Park, the various cruise lines, and probably hundreds of other tourist traps.  They all want you to stand for a portrait and a little while later they are offering a print for $20.  Any time we are offered the photo, we pass.  It’s not Fauxtography as we define it here because the prints/photos are available to be viewed before purchase.

To the franchisees all we can say is caveat emptor.
