journalists biased towards canon?
8 months ago

I just read a review about the canon 1200d.

http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/canon_eos_1200d_review

We all know about all the old recycled parts in that thing
However the reviews gave a 9/10 and an highly recommended. Meaning he thinks it's a solid choice over an k500 a58 or Nikon d5100/3200 which can be bought at similar or lower price points.

Considering it's obviously inferior in every measurable and real world way I was baffled. That a proper site like photographyblog could spit out straight lies like this.

I thought reviewers were supposed to deliver objective thoughts about an product looking back at benchmarks set by the competition. However Canon seems to be excluded from criticism despite their complete laziness with this product.

Don't get me wrong. I think the 70d is a very exciting product that deserved all the love it got. This 1200d nowhere near as good in it's own class.
