This article is really helpful in that it shows the current state of deprivation of the free-for-all internet social sites, as well as the state of the pseudo intellectual comments that accompany a thread about this subject.

One of the greatest manifestation of a superbly designed gear is the beauty of the front lens.

The 10-30mm used as marketing release image is a CAD disaster.

The epitome of design laziness.

Ask any CAD operator.

ThomasSwitzerland: If you want to get a much overpriced camera with style, take a Leica with Panasonic interior. At least you keep something acknowledged by fashion.

This latest Nikon 1” matches their downhill stock performance. Competition from Fuji to Sony et.al. manifests the wake-up call. Written by a loyal Nikon user looking further.

Nikon loyal users are very smart.

They can easily spot a rort.

Nikon makes great and fantastic DSLRs and scientific optical equipment.

Majority of their photographic gear are groundbreaking and leading edge.

This camera series called "1" is a shamefull product launched by a most respected brand.

For this segment of the market, Nikon has truly lost the plot.

Alexis D: Thank you Nikon for these "1" cameras. Big sigh of relief for Olympus, Panasonic, Sony and Fuji each time Canikon release their sub par mirrorless cameras. These small makers are given more time to establish a stronger base and better chance of survival. Viva la competition, et aussi la diversité!

...and thank you very much also for using tiny wafers called Micro SD cards for memory storage! Wow! It just mimics the brain size of the camera designers! So cool!

Thank you also for making a USB charger! Now we have to find the nearest USB socket anywhere and everywhere! Or we could further be gouged in our pockets buying a real charger at extra cost! Whooppe Doo!

You can buy 2 new Nikon D3200 DSLRs for the price of one V3.

"Come on down! The price is fright!"

DPReview Quote:

Page 14: Conclusion, CONS: last item

"HIGH PRICE TAG"

If only Nee Con listened to those 3 words, they would be better off.

But nah... Nee CON.

On Adobe Photoshop Express update brings Raw editing post (16 comments in total)

There really isn't much real estate working on a tiny screen. There seems to be a minimal limit to image editing and that would be the size of a tablet.

On Nikon 1 V3 stock shortage prompts official apology article (288 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Posted the alleged apology on it's website.

Test case: DPReview news item release.

Ruse NOT working.

OK, no further escalation.

DPReview please delete article.

What? You can't?

Oh no!

.

What?

Ok, further explanation:

Nikon leaked the apology on it's website (which even the most die hard fan boys would never trawl...) and then...

Lo and behold!

It turns up as an "article" here on DPR! (...not that anybody's interested to hear about production schedules, but hey, it must have been a slow day at the editorial office...).

The RUSE backfired.

Instead of panic and waiting to get their hands on it first... the biggest Ho-HUM and anger: DO YOU THINK BUYERS ARE THAT STUPID NIKON?

So... Nikon realized: It has BACKFIRED! Stop the presses!

Delete the damaging article! PLEASE! PLEEEEEEZE!!!

Too

Late

People are NOT THAT STUPID.

Nikon, for the sake of your impending doom, please change your advertising agency. They are killing you.

I like Nikon cameras and their innovative gear.

I like the Nikon brand.

But there is something REALLY WRONG with this camera system.

Nikon is not listening.

It is trying to feed "good enough" fodder to the innocent masses with mumbo jumbo technical word spins to regurgitate redundant features.

The whole system is an ergonomic design nightmare.

Today, DPR made all headline text a shocking BOLD.

Now THAT makes the site a really CHEAP looking profile.

You could have used a more classier font...

Kodak has always been known for cheap and affordable cameras that cater to consumers who just want to take pictures, devoid of the technical and the magnifying glass hoopla.

This is for them.

May well become the "People's Camera" if priced right and distributed like the way Kodak covered distribution of their products before.
