Photography takes many forms. Sometimes it is about the art. Sometimes it is about the equipment. In this case it is about the subject.
I'm strictly a p/s guy but remote control is very useful. Many slr's can be tripped from 30-40' away for group pics etc with a $30 thumb gadget. When home electronics remotes with 30-40 buttons are ubiquitous this would seem to be a no brainer option for most all cameras.
ken_holgh: It would be better to have an optical viewfinder for this camera for it is not to costly to include one with only fixed focal length lens
My Oly Stylus Epic 35mm Single focal length camera from film days had an excellent optical finder. Probably didn't cost a couple of $$ at the factory, and took up almost no space. The Epic zoom, however, had a much murkier finder. I seldom used it. (All that and weatherproof for a hundred bucks.)
Given the technical life of cameras why must all but the cheapest consumer cameras be made of unobtainium? This camera might be much more marketable with a plastic body (which can be functionally superior) and a few less features. Camera and fast prime at $300-400 would put it in the range of a pretty cool toy, which it seems to be anyway.
