Nikita66: US legal system is F-ed up.
US healthcare is F-ed up.
US foreign policy is F-ed up.
US debt is F-ed up.
US politics, in general, is F-ed up.

Every empire must fall.

I do not want to start a political debate here, and probably most points you made are (in a certain way) right, but since your profile states " Moscow, Russian Federation " I would say the gravity hypocrisy in those words is way heavier than what you are trying to communicate.

People should not be pictured / their image used without their consent - that sounds ok and reasonable.
But this? The very concept of such claim and demands following it are simply wrong.
Does anyone even see how ridiculous and unfair such lawsuits are?
Just to think there was a time in my life when I considered moving to US...thanks, but no thanks.

The shortest summary I could think of to depict what they offer is "A really dumb idea"

G Sciorio: One of the most unique yet misunderstood cameras of it's time. Amazing image quality. It's for photographers not camera geeks.

No I did not and not intending to. The thing is, it apparently applies to many other, if not most conscious users. There are much more practical solutions on the market. That's even if you consider each factor separately: price, size, image quality...not to mention ergonomics. It's a simply failed combination of those components that turned not-so-bad idea into a form far from optimum in most practical aspects.
There are many other products on the market I'm not willing to test for the same reason. Not only the photo-industry; there are tons of products hitting the market with no genuine concept, with a price-tag way past selling point Remember recent hasselblad products? You can also check the kickstarter. That thingy here is the same problem only founded with more $.
I believe it's a reasonable approach, unless you are trying to apply here "did you try it > no > then shut up" kind of logic; then I see no way to argue with someone who is simply trying to justify his DxO 1 purchase...

Couldn't agree more. Yep - One fully misunderstood camera...mainly by whoever designed it to what it is and also by one other guy who put a price tag on it.

They managed the impossible - made a ridiculous product even more ridiculous...

"...the camera's shooting mode can be changed by holding your hand over the lens for 3 seconds - allowing a degree of control without having to remove the camera from its case...."
Wow that's smart...ahhh wait maybe not so...there are better & cheaper u/w cameras on market that you get with buttons, displays, dials, etc built in...is that bs for real?
What if I want to take a 3s exposure of my hand? ;P

A new gadget for desperado/gangsta-photographers: the "rolling coffin".
Go in: bring the lighting eq. in (or not)...
Go out: roll out with a dead guy in it.

Langusta: How big are the files?

If that is the actual size, then this feature makes sense indeed. Only thing to improve would be to go to full resolution.
