Open letter to Michael Reichmann, re. the GM1

I am hugely disappointed with you, MR, regarding your Panasonic GM1 review on Luminous Landscape.

(tried to log onto your LL site but got a lot of weird questions that I was not able to respond to, could not figure out what’s the square number to infinity... , but anyway....)

This is my message:

Based on your prior experience with cameras, you should have known – beforehand – that a camera without a viewfiender is useless in bright light... in the Southern Arctics ... all of them are .... in bright light... all of us know that?

So, you should not have based your entire review of the GM1 on that premises ...

Your review, Michael, is like coming to my country, Iceland with a Fiat 500, a car designed for the streets of Milan, and then feeling disappointed that it did not do so well in the Icelandic wilderness....

The 24mm lens did not capture the birds in flight?

You have done better ...

from Iceland
