Nikon Coolpix 4800 review
I know I'm not suppossed to post if I don't own one ... but ... I just had to.
In today's hi-tech engineering climate, plastic is NOT the inferior material some assume it to be. There are very hi-tech "Engineering Plastics" that have very good properties for a camera body.
That being said, finishing is different from materials. It should have been better, no doubt. But the finish is the problem, not the material.
