Re: Blogger Ming Thein: GH3 a "consumer appliance"

Let's be honest ALL digital cameras are now consumer appliances. They are designed for mass production and consumption. I don't see it as a bad thing, it's just how things are nowadays. When I bought my first SLR you expect it to have 15 years or so, now with digital the rate of change means that you keep something maybe 3 years and then upgrade.

I don't understand why people have got so bent out of shape with this review. So Ming Thein didn't like the GH3. BIG DEAL! I don't particularly care for it either, but then I'm not so keen on the EM5. It is just one person's opinion, it's not part of some global conspiracy or evidence of psychological instability. Sure you may not understand his motives, but hey if we all liked the same thing that would mean there would only be one type of camera and that would be pretty boring.
