Re: DPR gold vs silver awards

It sounds like some people have to "fall in love" with a camera before it can be awarded a gold! But, is a camera really akin to a love affair? After all, it's just a piece of equipment, it's not like choosing a wife (or husband) .. or I don't think it is! Although I realise that numerical assessments are not all that relevant for "love affairs", I am not completely convinced that cameras (or even cars) came into that category!

I agree 100%. All I care about is if the camera can give me the results I'm looking for with a "reasonable" amount of learning and effort. Quite frankly because I am used to SLR sized cameras I hated the handling of the RX100 at first but loved the photos it produced. Now after about 2 weeks of use and about 700 photos I've become accustomed to it and have figured out how to best use it so now I really like how it handles and it's ergonomics. Some people don't seem to want to put any effort into it. I do wish it had a flip screen though.
