    From DPreview.com;
    When it comes to women and digital cameras, recent research from
    imaging industry market research company Lyra reveals that Kodak
    really pushes their buttons. The Digital Photography survey showed
    that more than 20% of women use Kodak cameras while only 10% of men
    choose to use the brand. The most popular camera manufacturer among
    the male of the species is Canon, with 17% of men using that brand,
    followed by Sony. Lyra's president and director of the Digital
    Photography Advisory Service, Charles LeCompte, explains the findings:
    "The explanation is that women in general are less comfortable with
    technology and therefore are more attracted to trusted brands." So
    ladies, dump your D-SLRs and pick up an EasyShare!

    There might not be any ladies here to hear you. <g>

    I learned to fly because I thought it would score points with the babes..
    but there are no babes at the airports, so that plan didn't work out.

  3. Hmmph!

    I'm quite happy with my Pentax *ist DS, thankyou.

    I haven't owned a Kodak branded camera since I switched from an
    Instamatic 25 (took square 128 cartridges) to my first Pentax SLR back
    in the 1970s.

    I had one of those 25's. It took much better pictures than the 110
    camera I got afterward.

    Which was better than the ill-conceived disk-film cameras that came
    and went.

  6. It should have done, just from film size alone.

    I've even got a few Kodachrome pictures that came out of my 25 online:
    http://web.ukonline.co.uk/baronmoss/Aus_Seventies_Martindale_Hall.html

    I went on using it for another year or two after I took these pictures,
    but then decided that maybe I'd take better pictures if I got something
    a little fancier. The something fancier was a Pentax KM which came with
    a 50mm f1.7 lens and the possibilities of attaching all sorts of other
    lenses.

    It took me about 20 years, but I built myself up quite a nice collection
    of manual PK lenses for the KM and the variety of other PK bodies that
    joined it.

    Now the lenses are adorning my *ist DS (had to mention it to keep this a
    bit on-topic <g>) while the film bodies seem to be sitting doing very
    little.
