Re: XZ-1 - cheap rubbish with a big price

@snake: I am not sure whether your comment was aimed at me. Still, of course there is no statistic on XZ1 cameras with dust inside. But such a forum as this and other forums with special threads for XZ1 owners give a good indication on performance as well as quality of a camera.

For example, it is rather easy to find threads on the OOC JPG quality in low contrast motives. So many have experienced this behaviour.

The complaint raised in this thread of dust/debris inside the cam in contrast seems to be rare in occurence. So instead of seeing this as general quality (or the lack thereof -)) ) of this cam I personally regard it as something almost all cams experience in low percentages. In addition, the owner had it after two weeks of use and while I do not know how he/she handled the cam, the probability of responsibility of the owner is non-zero.

'nuff said.
