Were they THAT bad???
Jun 25, 2014

My first digital camera was a 2mp Sony Cybershot. I thought it was quite a good little camera for its time.

Apparently others were not so enamoured of later models.

When I first saw the picture, I thought someone was already trying to dump their RX100 III.  Saving up for the IV version.

Maybe typo, sometimes fun. I also call Sonys as Cyber$hit and also Canon as Power$hit or other similar things corelating names in my language with very similar meaning. It´s just fun. When I overtake somebody sitting in Porsche (because roads are bad and he must go slow) I say "get of my way with that junker, or when he drives BMW (which I like), I say "Barely Moving Wreck"

Just fun. I had some old 4MP Kyocera on my table for repair, and it looked like one hell of camera for its age. 10x zoom with something like f/2.8-3.2 lens, EVF. Given for free (for repair of broken display). People don´t realize what might be real value of electronics. It happens. No need to be curious.

In older days when PC was most important piece of electronics every youngster would want to upgrade (no fast web access, no FB), every week I walked into secondhand PC shop to look what´s new, good and what can I afford so my PC will run faster. This guy selling this stuff was not really fair, but sometimes he sold me a gem for little money. I remember (quite lately) that I wanted to buy Geforce II MX, and he sold it like that to me for some money. Then I installed it in my PC and realized it´s pretty unlockable QUADRO MX reaching speed of propably not yet existent Geforce 4MX in many cases. I was blown away. Of course didn´t bring it back to seller who made few steals on me before...

So, when people don´t really know the value they have, and people who buy don´t know the value they get, it propably must be sold cheap...

Why does he do it?
