Bias: a personal and sometimes unreasoned judgment

The fact that he first went on a rant about several subjective things (it is almost like 1/2 the review is about the UI) and then claimed it was not "personal bias" explains what was going on.

Clearly is was a personal judgment and if you read the parts about video, etc. many will say, "sometimes unreasoned".

So when he says that he has no personal bias. He's simply saying that he did not make any prejudgements based on personal feelings. He's giving his opinion after having used the camera. How can you make the contention that he's presenting his feelings about the ergonomics or UI of the camera as facts. Those are not quantities that can't be evaluated as facts. They are inherently subjective.
