Real world "camera design" feedback provider to camera "lab designers" who never get out to see the real world.
Elements is the reality check for the big A.
It is also their fallback plan B in case plan A gets obliterated...
would you want to have this camera, if it were given to you as a gift?
That is called, The Desirability Test.
Sometimes... people feel the need to get a piece of timber from the woods, saw and chip and chisel it to a camera shape, sandpaper and smooth out the rough edges, apply a shinny lacquer black finish...
Then gouge out a tiny one square centimeter hole on the front face...
...and put a tiny cell phone/laptop camera in there.
Oh the joy of complexity...
Hold off for the Gamma Version...
It is rumored to pack a lot of Iron clad apps...
It's a white lens with a feel that is unique.
The switches are ergonomically appealing.
This is what the users wanted, and Canon listened.
Even the tripod collar has been made streamlined shaped.
Although the IQ reports remain to be checked, the ergonomic design of this new lens is quite the right proper design. Nikon should be following up with it's own... since the shape is not at all patented or exclusive,
"Make it simple...
cut out the 'pen'..."
Oly, everybody knows it's a pen, matey...

The hideous screen is a clear giveaway.
"Stay Away" written all over.
Solution: Look to another GUI, guys... Windows won't be of any help to you... They are struggling themselves...
Much cheaper than trying to push this loser.
Hey, Leica... you know what?
I would rather have a Leica made 3rd party lens mounted on my ________ (insert your favorite DSLR here), rather than this sluggish tank headed for oblivion.
A whole heap of more potential customers will buy your lenses than your Jurassic camera bodies.
Go where you shine brilliantly: LENSES, LENSES and LENSES.
Don't be ashamed to emulate Sigma, Tamron and Tokina... you can easily smoke them in just a few years.

"Umm... No thanks, I don't Leica..."
Well it's a good thing they didn't remove the overhead wires in the first photo...
The energy sponsors of the program will complain...
They tried to make me go to C-Cloud but I said 'no, no, no'
Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know know know
I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine
He's tried to make me go to C-Cloud but I won't go go go
A routine XRay along the major security points would have outed the camera and wiring array enough for it to be opened for inspection, as a suspected object.
What this video shows is utter lack of security measures on postal vectors.
Not participating in this poll.
Let the company find out for themselves.
THE HARD WAY.
Mr. Vice President of Creative Solutions...
I feel sorry for you that you have to face a hostile crowd...
It may not be your full willing decision to front the customers, but it is part of your job description and official duties...
Meanwhile, the real wisecracks who were wise and into crack who conjured up this scheme, sit in their board room leather chairs rubbing their arthritic hands together viewing all this hullabaloo while they drink their glass of geriatric milk.
To all the anti Adobe and pro Adobe people:
Let's face it: ADOBE HAS RUN OUT OF INNOVATIONS.
Except this one: last one.
"Is that the Adobe cloud I see on the horizon?"
"No!... it's... it's...
Never saw an article on DPR (previous Adobe item, not this) with so much comments in so short a time.
It must have triggered a nerve or something...
Is this a record of sorts?
(...and it's not even about camera gear!)
"Mr. Frodo! Mr. Frodo! You forgot to renew your Adobe subscription!"
"There was a glory called Adobe, Proximo... this is not it.THIS IS NOT IT!"
"We are mere pixels and digits, Maximus...PIXELS AND DIGITS!"
There is a limit to what you can claim as exclusivity or proprietorship in the area digital image editing.
When that happens, and the invisible ceiling is encountered:
Marketing Fluff takes over.
I remember when that word meant something else...
