All this 'purist' talk about it "finally looking like a camera" or "just what I've been wanting, a film-style camera"...

It's a cute look for a novelty "retro" camera, but if they really wanted to appeal to the 'purist' film shooters they should have removed the rear LCD and made us wait until we got home, and processed, to see what was actually captured. ;)

JimBob0: Not sure what people are whining about. I must be in that small bracket of people that want a camera to look like a camera. I hate to tell you geeks this, but dials are wondeful to use, instant familiarity when setting a shutter speed or iso or whatever. Instead of roving through myriads of menus trying to find something, there it is, on a dial in front of you.

I was addressing your reasoning, not the idea that I am forced to buy anything.

Didn't mean to hurt your eFeelings.

If you can't explain how it looks like a camera but a D600 doesn't.. just say so.

Not sure dials make or break a camera. Mine have dials, and I use them with the hard buttons.

As far as you wanting a "camera that looks like a camera"... what have you been shooting with? Does it not look like today's camera?

I don't need my phone to have a mouthpiece mounted on a box with a crank on the side, and a wired earpiece... I just need a phone that works good, and has the latest technology.

If this is the "new" body style, I couldn't care less. The overpriced, unimpressive feature-set is what keeps me away.

Tom Mounsey: No Support for Windows XP means goodbye Adobe for me. I'm sick of being mugged by companies like Adobe and Microsoft milking us every 18 months to stay on their merry-go-rounds.

So... which OS and which version of LR are you using now ?

peevee1: “We want to create a product that will change the concept of cameras,” Kimura said in the Bloomberg interview. “It could be a non-camera consumer product.”

Something wearable, like glasses (with camera), watch (with camera), bluetooth headset (with camera), brooch (with, you guessed it...).

.. none of those are "non-camera".

Nikon could change it's own concept of cameras by creating one that can focus correctly and doesn't splatter oil.

Granted, adding a call feature to their point & shoot is probably more important to them.

D400 or bust.

SeeRoy: Good to know that by adding perspective correction we'll now be seeing far more top-heavy buildings in holiday snaps.

The problem is that the feature "over-corrects".
I don't see a problem with SeeRoy's comment.

And if Adobe were oversensitive enough to remove things due to complaints, Photoshop would be a pretty empty program.

Acrobat wouldn't even exist.

Did your LR3 stop working ?

So don't upgrade. Obviously you're not all that into upgrading anyway.What happens when your XP doesn't run ANYTHING new? Does that mean goodbye computing?

I hardly consider dropping support for an OS over a decade old.. "mugging".

... some people LOVE to complain...

Really?
Host removing entries due to her own opinion of them?
Sounds like a fair challenge!

Maybe another "Doors" challenge is due... you know... a fair one.

Better yet.... something a bit more interesting than "doors".
