Major mistake number one - think you yourself is a brilliant reviewer

Of course, if you like your new camera and have confidence in it, that is the most important for you. But, you yourself is the less objective reviewer when you yourself have bought the camera.

Have fun!

Uh yeah. I didn’t purport to be reviewing it. I just said that a review isn’t going to influence my opinion on it. Just the same way a food critic can’t tell me what I’m going to like. I am capable of making my own decisions. All I can do is share my experiences. And everyone else can take that for what that is worth or not

You are, of course, totally right on that.

But I can give you an example. I did not like dark chocolate some years ago, I thought it was bitter and horrible. I wanted soft milk chocolate. So, I thought I knew what I wanted.

Then, I learned that there are differences to dark chocolate, and in particular Trinitario beans make not so bitter chocolate. And I started to enjoy it and now can even it rather bitter stuff, and like it.

Of course, I could live a good life and still only eat milk chocolate, but I would have missed something.

And the sense morale? Non really, but chocolate is nice!

Perhaps... that you'd still have missed something if all dark chocolate reviews would say, "only for those who like chocolate, otherwise don't bother trying"?
