On Panasonic DMC FZ200 preview (155 comments in total)

Accuracy, please. The FZ-1 (c. 2003) was the 35-420 mm camera with the constant f2.8 aperture lens. Aftermarket firmware update provided increased shutter speed or aperture control, but the 2-megapixel camera was the first in this line, not the FZ10. Thanks.

On Pentax unveils Optio RZ18 compact superzoom article (33 comments in total)
In reply to:

GiovanniB: Interestingly styled, maybe except for the speaker/mic grilles. The recessed, textured grip surfaces might turn bulky protrusions obsolete.

This camera clones a Samsung model of a couple of years ago, with a longer zoom. Nothing ground-breaking here.

On Casio reveals Exilim EX-ZS15 touch-screen compact article (9 comments in total)

I like Casio's cameras. But the crazy rush to touch-screen operation is baffling. Few of these touch-screen controls are viewable in bright daylight, which is where compact digital cameras can give their optimalresults! Perhaps fewer buttons eliminates costs, but as someone with grown-up fingers, I've found most touch-screen cameras (from Canon, Kodak, and Panasonic) over-promise and are a disappointment in many daylight photo opportunities.

Hard to believe that the same company that produced the excellent XA series of compact 35mm cameras could produce this collection of protrusions and add-ons -- and then call it 'compact.' With either shown lens and the flash accessory, it looks unwieldy.
