Why are folks so critical/cynical. This is the best view we've had so far. I've seen some of his other films-they are fine.

In many internet forums, including this one, some people instead of attacking someone's mistakes or point of argument, decide it's best to attack the person directly. That doesn't make their case any stronger but I guess it must somehow feels better.

Now, in particular to branded forums, this attitude is often used by some people whenever they feel there is any remote attack on their favorite brand or favorite product..

For example- the guy in the video made the mistake of what the resolution really is (19.6MP), others may disagree with what he accurately said was interpolated for 39 or so MP, (though he may have missed on exactly the circumstances under which), and as a positive, he said that while he is not a fan of the physical design of the camera - should be hardly surprising to hear, many people are not so it's not like it's only him- he actually said he needs to wait until he sees the final image quality/output to pass judgement on the camera because to him final image quality is more important that some inconvenience in what he thinks the ergonomics have.

For someone who wants to try to be objective you may think the last sentence sounds like a fair statement. But that has to be ignored if you want to attack anything negative that may have been said- real or perceived, about the product if you blindly must think it has to be perfect.

No Ricardo. He is just someone mouthing off about something he did absolutely no research on and thus makes a fool of himself. If there is anything ad hominem in the criticism, it is self-adhominemism through stupidity.

I have watched plenty of these filmettes being made, and the key is to have a large piece of paper with some key talking points on it. This is what happens when even that minimum preparation is missing.

I agree with you is not exactly an in-depth analysis, but I think it's fair for him to say that he grabbed the camera and the shape/ergonomics gave him the impression that gave him.  I feel the reactions so far to the ergonomics have been all over the map (i.e. I see a mix of points in the video, some without much thought, some others I think are more valid- from the little points presented).

Looking forward to try it out for myself. When I look at it, I feel pretty neutral about it on first pass- seems to have the dials and buttons I want which is what I could without holding one probably say may be missing or not.   I actually like the design visually.

My only real concern on the physical design is size and how it would fit in a coat pocket.

"I thought: I read something in a book, I dream, I imagine, and it comes true. And it is exactly like this in life.
"You can dream, and it comes true, as long as you can get out of the certitudes. As long as you can get a pioneering spirit, as long as you can explore, as long as you can think off the grid. So much time we spend in our education, in our lives is spent learning certitudes, learning habits, trying to fight against the unknown, to avoid the doubts and question marks. As soon as you start to love the unknown, to love the doubts, to love the question marks, life becomes an absolutely fabulous adventure."
