D200, P7100, V1
When Warner Brothers aimed to sue Marx Brothers for using word "Casablanca" in their movie "Night in Casablanca", Groucho Marx aimed to sue Warners for using the word "Brothers", claiming that Marx Brothers were there before Warners.
If I don't need to upgrade, I have to continue to pay for the previous version for years. Since I seldom upgrade every release (same as with my hardware) - usually only after two generations, it's a big NO for me.
Joel Benford: Does it still have the "mandatory image review" issue?
Is the programme mode still wedded to low ISO and shutter speeds?
This actually matters, the hell with the wth looks.
Low ISO problem was addressed in the latest V1 firmware update so I assume V2 does not suffer from it. Image review can be cancelled by pressing half-way release button after the shot, but I agree it should be optional in V2.
Zoeff: Yey! A camera that the masses find super ugly. Quite suggestive that the designers of an MILC actually prioritized function of form for once. :-)
I really like this idea - create camera that only serious photographers would buy while keeping away all those who wear it as a pretty accessory on their neck only for a show-off. BTW, in one research a group of kids were asked to pick a favorite car from a line of all kinds of sport/power cars. Almost all of them picked the ugliest, meanest car.
