    You are an idiot if you think that the primary concern is how fast
    it can take photos.
    I was right. You are an idiot. There is NO camera that always has
    perfect metering.
    Unluckily for us you'll insist on showing everybody that you're an

    No option for compact-flash, we wouldn't want any-one to buy this as
    a cheap (almost disposable) back-up camera, and use all the bits the
    have already. It also uses different batteries :)

    Maybe all the pro's can afford an insurance that covers rain damage,
    getting too close to the wild animals, etc., but I can't !!!!

    This would have been cheap enough to be used in all the
    "risky" situations, but with completely different accessories.... it's
    too much hastle.

    So you're calling DPreview an idiot then...OK!
    Seeking conformation with oneself might be OK, but be aware of answers you
    may get...
    My Sony A350 only refuses perfect metering after it has been ran over by a
    100 ton tank...

    Little bitter, are we?
    You watch all TV station all the time too? So why don't you dial a different
    news post then?

    But just as recently as Sat, 3 May 2008 22:38:27 +0100, he said this
    about the A350 in the "Ferrari butchered by Sony A350" thread:
    And of course he had a *lot* of problems with his 40D... Some people
    are just.. 'unlucky', I guess.

    But, anyway, he's feeling much better now, and has learnt *so* much
    since then... So we should all take careful note of what he says. With
    him and RichA looking out for us, we'll all be ok!


    PS - thanks very much for cross-posting this to, Focus - have
    you moved to Aus, or is this in some way highly relevant to those down

  5. Focus, even a 5 year old has more reading comprehension than
    you do.

    So you're a pathetic liar as well as an idiot.
    But you're a liar and your "answers" aren't worth anything.
    Not in the slightest. A lot insecure are you? You must be given that
    your identify is so wrapped up in a machine.

  7. Well, in the UK it is £499 body only - $1000 - and I don't think that is
    cheap compared to Nikon, Sony, Olympus and Pentax all coming in with
    £299 or lower entry level. It may have live view, but it looks as if all
    Canons will have live view soon enough, and this is the entry-level model.

    I found the resurrected version.

    Interesting where they call the -350 "poor" in battery performance when
    it out shoots the "good" Canon 2:1 in Live-view...

    It's as if they go into a Canon review thinking: "Let's see what is
    great" and they go into the Sony saying "let's see what's bad" and then
    fail at that...

    I used to like to believe that DPReview was unbiased, but it appears
    their reviewers are probably biased. And more likely due to a lack of
    broader experience with many camera types.

    He also had a problem with a Nikon D300, but I digress!
    Gotta love sarcasm.
    It's a photo group... is now *worldwide,* thanks to global
    distribution of Usenet. IIRC, it was one of those AUS types (Douglas)
    that laid claim to creating this form of communication from a simple BBS
    no less.

    enjoys your posts Mr. Thomas... isn't trying to start anything with this
    reply. May your today and/or my tomorrow be enjoyable.

  12. I don't know where you guy can get all this all this
    it is over sharpened , soft, hard, over exposed, under exposed,
    loss of detail stuff. These are electronic devices that process
    raw data from something, be it CCD or CMOS or whatever, using
    a computer and software. That software is also in the camera, which
    is there only to allow the buyer who has no computer, to print a picture
    You look at this stuff on a electronic monitor, that is far from perfect.
    You have your own view of good and bad.
    What final image looks like is almost completely up to you. The image,
    even focus is under your control.
    In fact there is a great amount of effort put into many pictures
    to make them soft or have loss of detail. Before DSLR you selected
    film to provide that.
    When you look at a great photo, do you think, that is a great picture,
    it must have been taken with a Nikon D300.

    The point is they are all the same.. Some have a longer Gee Wizz list and
    some are of higher mechanical quality and some look better to you and
    some feel better to you.

    Rita does :)
    Not at all, but I agree some people do obsess over things that can be better
    controlled by the user, or software, rather than the camera.
