Re: When the reviews get it wrong.

I value reviews at some sites, including this one, but I also recognize their limitations. One significant limitation is their perceived need to find flaws. I bought one camera that produced "soft" photos and had a "flimsy" access door for the memory card. In use, neither was a problem. I never opened the card access door and then smacked it with a hammer but in years of normal use it had no problems. Actually, three years later, in reading the forum entries for that model, the concern for the "flimsy" access door wasn't reflected in reality.

Read reviews and take with a lot of salt.
