Wubslin: 'faux leather'

Stopped reading right there. Goodbye Fuji, you won't be missed.

@krassphoto: I save money by not owning a camera, and I never have done. So I guess Fuji won't miss what they never had.

deanfuller: I can't believe they're still putting that 1960's flappy mirror thingy in a camera. When will they learn . . .

Shockingly, not every pro photographer wants a dinky compact.

Perhaps you should tell me why I should read anything you say.

Wubslin: Apple as a company is over. They should diamantle the whole enterprise and return the money to the shareholders.

@Wye Photography: You say that like owning a camera is somehow expected.

Newsflash: it isn't expected, and it's nothing to be proud of. You photogs think everyone is - or should be - like you that you never stop to think about anyone else's point of view.

No wonder you lot are so unpopular with security and law enforcement... you don't think anyone should have any right to privacy.

Wubslin: Why is Nikon bothering any more? Another two failed products to join the rest in the dustbin of history.

@hypercore360: I've never claimed to be a photographer. Mainly because I am not one, and I don't like photographers.

@aarif: I don't have a camera so your 'point', whatever you imagine it to be, is irrelevant.

Already have one, thanks. One that doesn't involve fanatically defending Apple products on the internet at every opportunity.

Wubslin: Typical of modern so-called 'culture' that the first instinct when presented with a new manufactured item is to tear it to pieces.

Sympomatic of the moral malaise which has overtaken our society I suppose.

@Barney Britton: I have no interest in visiting them to find out what other shenanigans they get up to.

@Old Baldy: Still refusing to address their use of slave labour and environmentally destructive material sources I see.

Still refusing to address their inadequate QA and performance.

Their 'appeal' is purely down to perception and clever marketing. Fewer and fewer people are being fooled by that now.

And still the iSheep keep defending them.

Conveniently ignoring their poor performance and value for money compared with Windows / Android alternatives, falling share price, worsening financials, corner-cutting on quality, use of slave labour and dirty materials suppliers.

And all their supporters can come up with in response to specific, verifiable criticisms is personal abuse.

Disappointing but not unexpected.

snapa: I hate iPhones, iPads, iPods or anything that starts with an "i".
I think this is a great idea and hope Android (a real phone) comes out with something like this soon. If anyone thinks a few mm to almost double their usage is too much, they are just plain stupid. It looks like it may even save your phone in case you drop it, very sturdy looking. I the way it looks, will give you much better talk time and protects the phone!

@EricWN : It's not about the product. That's a superficial point of view.

It's about the cynicism and lack of care which goes in to them. Apple must believe that their fan base will pay for a turd as long as it's shiny and has the right logo on it.

Maybe they're right.
