    Greetings all,

    Just wanted to share some information about a new digital camera release
    from Kodak. The URL below will give you a full set of details and
    information about this camera. I have had the chance to review it and work
    with it a bit. I am sure that when it hits the stores you are going to love
    it. Quite innovative and fun to use. Check it out! I am here if you have
    any questions.

    A particularly egregious abuse of Usenet.

    My question, Ron, would be why a company like Kodak doesn't follow the rules
    in marketing it's products?

    Is Kodak so desparate they are having their flaks put out crap like this
    with company bl;essing - or are you just hoping to keep your job? I got
    news, ahole - after the complaints you generate today the chances are good
    you will be flipping burgers tomorrow. Probably the job most suited to your
    abilities anyhow.

  6. The website says it will be available in June!
    The world of technology will have moved on so far in the next 6 months that
    this will be decidedly old hat by then.
    Or is Kodak aware that another company will come out with real
    groundbreaking products and wants to sell us this camera on a promise before
    we become aware we have been had?

    I think you're over-reacting.

    I wouldn't have minded if Ron had posted a short spec list and what we can
    expect to pay for one when they are available.

    Don't you think you are being a bit harsh. Wouldn't 40 lashes and salt
    in the wounds be enough for a single promotional message?

    I'm glad to know you welcoms spam - it gives me a good reason to killfile
    you and a few other brain dead fools.



    I thought the same thing.

    Assuming the Kodak poster is legitimate, it is a rare thing indeed that a
    company representative has the NERVE to actually post on usenet. I have read
    some of his other posts and recall they were helpful - IOW, not all
    advertisements.

    I was rather frustrated to see the guy flamed so vehemently. Yeah, yeah, he
    touted a commercial product but, IMHO, did it very nicely without a lot of
    wasted bandwidth (a link instead of in-line features, etc)

    I wish other companies would be a little more "visible" here. However,
    considering the rather outrageous "flipping burgers" follow-up/flaming of this
    poster, I'm not surprised they aren't.

    We can endure an interminable OFF-TOPIC thread [meaning of life] (Horrible
    Tsunami Pics) and top/bottom post thread, not to mention the usual spam, but
    let someone foolish enough to use a real log-in and post a single page mention
    of a commercial product and BAM! Flame City. It's sad.

    :(

    Hi...

    I'll apologize too, as I stick in my 2 cents worth...

    Kodak is, one way or another, paying the salary that puts
    bread on his table...

    Having said that, he is very helpful to the Kodak users
    among us; while I very much doubt that the majority of us
    will be of much help to him - given the resources almost
    certainly at his disposal. Therefore he isn't reading
    this group for his entertainment or gain, and may not
    be here were it not for Kodak's part in it.

    I'm suggesting that it's worth considering letting
    Ron/Kodak do a bit of promoting in return for the
    considerable help.

    I know I'd love it if an Olympus pro would join us;
    and hate it if the rest chased him away.

    If I have a vote, I'll vote that we offer him and
    Kodak a group apology for the "attack"; hope he/they
    accept it and stick around - with the occasional promo.

    Take care.

    Ken

    While I agree that the post is blatant promotion, and Ron should not
    have posted it, his contributions to the group over a long period should
    allow him some small indescretion without capital punishment. I suspect
    most of us who have been here for some time have done worse.

    Greetings All,

    Guess I stepped out of line here a bit. What was I thinking?

    Truly, my intent was to let everyone know about something new. But, for
    those I stepped on, I apologize. I will keep your thoughts in mind in the
    future. My real goal here is to help those that have decided to buy Kodak,
    or have an interest in digital imaging, or that have some problem, Kodak or
    not.

    As to choosing cameras, I generally comment only if there is a request or a
    reason. I have stated many times that the best way to choose a camera is to
    try it out if possible and to consider all the facts, i.e. what kind of
    photographer are you, how much money you are going to spend, How does it
    feel, what features do you think you will need or use, etc.

    Regardless, I accept your thoughts and will keep them in mind in the future.

    Talk to you all soon.

    There are several advantages to Lithium Ion batteries, such as light
    weight, high power density (means smaller batteries), and they are
    usually proprietary which locks you into the manufacturer's batteries
    (another revenue stream), and their charger. I still prefer AA NIMH
    batteries.

    Agree with this poster.
    Nice to see a "brand" rep frequently participating in this newsgroup.All you
    naysayers....why don't you take off (you know who you are) URL links in your
    sig??!!

    - my 2 cents....

  18. Tony who? Kill filtered. Plonk!

    I never gave Ron Baird's heads up about Kodak's newest camera a second
    thought and any news about their products is fine by me.

    In fact, news about any new digital camera is fine by me from whatever
    source unless it's blatant Spam. Like many others in here I'd like to
    see more camera makers offer their assistance in rec.photo.digital.

    Everyone knows Ron is a Kodak rep and a his post was not out of line
    in my books.

    Ron is always courteous and very helpful. True to form this sentence
    tells the tale, "I am here if you have any questions." Nothing wrong
    with that.

    I would say Ron's transgression was a 1 or 2. I suspect I have done
    worse, without comment by anyone. The problem is that Kodak just isn't
    held in high regard by many of the posters here, and they won't miss an
    opportunity to impune the motives of the company. Perhaps is ANY other
    company had representatives available to help its customers on here, I
    would feel more sympathetic toward those Kodak detractors.

    Ron:

    I have used your involvement here as an example of how a corporation can use
    the internet to their benefit in customer relations, don't let a few people
    get to you, I look forward to your posts.

    Keep up the good work, thanks
