    Didn't I say I didn't expect one? (Your reading comprehension problems
    are showing again). In any event, I couldn't care less: it's your
    (unlikely, stupid, irrational) claim, not mine.
    The truth is filth? Curious.
    provide it.

    Prediction: no real substantiation (a name, a phone number, other
    witnesses, etc), just vague assurances.

    OK, but if you HAD posted something it *may* have been in agreement, right?

    Yes!

    Dam. I wasn't going to post one of those.. (O;

    I, like Drifter, am often struck but the extraordinarily small
    differences in cameras, especially when it comes down to resolution and
    color variations, that are agonised over.

    Places like dpreview often get slammed for not having many (any?)
    cameras ever fall below `above average`, but when you compare the
    market leaders in DSLRs and prosumers, the differences really are
    pretty small. The true 'dogs' of cameras never even get reviewed,
    methinks. Go see ebay, and check out all the `10Mp` cameras being sold
    there, like `Megxon` and `SVP`....We need a few more reviews of
    *those*, to put things into perspective, I reckon...

    Well, just for giggles I posted a "quickie review" of the Aiptek
    PocketCam X on Rec.Photo.Digital a few months ago.

    This camera
    http://www.aiptek.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=PKXCOM&Category_Code=PD1
    was purchased completely on impulse.

    I'm still trying to find the review so I can re-post it but a quick
    summary was roughly this...

    No focus to worry about.

    Flash was surprising (in that it had one, and it was pretty strong)

    Digital zoom (as expected) was horrifying

    movie mode (with an SD card for extra memory) was "decent" and sound
    was surprisingly good

    Still images were quirky with all the artifacting, etc. that you'd
    expect from interpolated sensor and plastic lens...but in good
    sunlight the camera takes better than expected pictures. Not really
    good mind you, but better than expected.

    In summary... I'm afraid to even set this camera on the same shelf
    with my 10d because I don't want to give it a complex. But the bottom
    line is that this camera is really fun to play with. I find myself
    using it for some shots -because- of the oddball behavior (like
    playing with pinhole cameras).

    There, a review from the OTHER end of the spectrum <grin>
