The Reviewers

What qualifies a person to do a review.

Does someone just grab a camera and say some important stuff.

There are so many conflicting opinions of different products

There is no consistency in the criticisms of the different products and i am referring to cameras here.

Reviewer A would give Camera #1 a 3 out of 5

Reviewer B would give Camera #1 a 4 and A half out of five

And then some other reviewer gives it a 2 out of five.

Each, naturally stating their own problems with the device

So for the consumer who doesnt really understand all the yadda yadda, has to go with the camera that gets the most stars.

But we have seen there are issues with these as well, ok some user related but some camera related.

So which reviewer is the one to go for. Are there reviewers that review the reviewer ?

Ok i am being silly here, but for the man in the street it does become a daunting task to find a product that is perfect, or is there such a camera, i dont know.

Any discussion or some friendly debate or banter is welcome.

Please i am in no way trying to demean or insult people that do reviews. Thats not what this thread is about, its about the consistency of the reviews
