My brother, a die-hard Nikon and Canon fan swears by his reviews. Is it credible?

No. He's a self-promoting tabloid camera blogger and Nikon devotee (paid shill) with a flair for the ridiculous and excessively hyperbolic to garner hits. His approach is akin to a car salesman trying to steer an ignorant mark to the vehicle he wants to sell most. Relevant facts and rational perspective do not play a role.

And speaking of playing a role, anyone who has trouble finding a DCIM folder on an SD card needs to be in another business altogether. I'm sure he gets around the 'clutter' just fine.

Rockwell Translation: It's not a Canikon and does a few things differently; ergo it's crap.
