Zvonimir Tosic: All flashes have a horrid UI and controls, made probably by chief Inquisitors in camera manufacturing companies. If Apple did one, it would come with Siri, so you can just talk to it how to fire and when.
If Apple made a flash, they'd have so much other features (like voice recognition, GPS, touchscreen sliders, glow-in-the-dark sleep mode) that they'd forget the main purpose of the flash: To act as a flash!
I'm glaring at you Apple for laughably screwing up the iPhone 4 and dropping calls. Forget it's a phone....it has so many other features to distract you from!
munro harrap: Surely they give them away to purchasers of their equipment !
The blurb is really inaccurate as Magnum was only set up in 1947, not a hundred years ago, and Leitz only statred into producing their own digital equipment a couple of years ago with the M8.
But like Nikon they do not make the sensors themselves.
And the server makes my sandwiches to my specifications (no cheese, extra mayo, medium rare) at restaurants!
Somehow that doesn't exactly mean Nikon has that much control over their sensors. You can make a request of what ever custom product/part you want, but that's entirely different from actually making it yourself.
