    ....out of my IR remote control.
    I looked everywhere in the box, but it's not there.

    In the A350 review of DPreview it clearly states on page 22: supplied IR
    remote control.

    Of course they make no mistakes, like all other tests they did, but
    strangely enough it's also not listed on page 13 of the manual.

    Or maybe they didn't even look in the manual?
    That would certainly explain why they don't seem to grasp how well it
    works...

    Hum, I wonder what else they forgot, put in or left out that's not true...

  3. The A350 can not be operated by the remote, which comes free with the
    A700. The dPreview error is because the journalist involved wrote the
    A350 report by changing the A700 one, and forgot to make some changes.

    It's Canon's fault.

    This is something that the amatuers at DP Review often do, about time they
    got some Pro level reviewers.

    I don't think I've ever seen an edition of "Aust Photography", "Wheels",
    "PC User", or even the "Herald-Sun", that didn't have errors.
    Mistakes aren't confined to the amateurs.

    PC User Pros?????????????????????????????????


    But seriously, basic facts wrong in every review, they can do better than
    that, I have pointed out basic specs that have been wrong sereral times and
    let them know but the errors till remain, they have no particular interest
    in getting it right, just in getting it done.

    "Pro", as in they get paid for it! :)
    Sounds about right. At least you get what you pay for :)
    Can't say the same for the overpriced print mags.

    PC User, the font of all knowledge and "expertism" as long as it contains
    some sort of computing power, amazes me all the camera reviews they have
    these days and some of the conclusions they come up with and reasons for one
    over another continue to astound, amuse and baffle me.

    Those who go near Pete D's place of dwelling, beware of
    all the glass spinters and low flying stones, for he's
    without a fault ...

  13. A glass bridge!? - now there's something worth seeing! Is it in the
    tourist guides?, 'The Bridge Of Lies', perhaps ;)

    It's more likely that Wolfie's intent was for us to conjure up an
    image of a glass house.
