  • Well, whoever's responsible is certainly going to give it a rest for a while now that the news is being broadcast that Mr. Plod's on their trail. They can then resume once the hue and cry has died...

    " once you get used to the "fat" files from the D800 there is no going back :-)"
    So don't bother going "forward" then.

  • That's about right. The almost complete failure of 3D TV in favour of higher resolution, and hence larger screens, is a similar phenomenon. However if demand existed solely for what is actually...

  • Function. All watches are timepieces. They're only incidentally male jewellery (we're talking men's watches, in the main.) All the other differentiation (mechanical complexity) is a way of...

  • Trific unboxing-thrill factor...

  • The camera market is simply evolving to resemble many other sectors of the luxury consumer goods market - watches would be a good example. The function of any given watch is almost identical to any...

  • Also likely to prove very popular amongst proctologists and spelunkers.

  • Lin Evans:
    You're bashing your head against a brick wall - trying to apply rationality to a case of mass psychosis. This series of cameras, overpriced as they are, seems to induce it.

  • An absolutely hilarious product. Testament to a luxury goods marketplace that can best be described as decadent.

  • Far too rational a comment. There's no denying that the launch price is very steep but no doubt the manufacturer has done the sums based on the previous models' price profiles.

    It's a still (DSLR) camera which can be used to shoot video. Providing you don't mind abysmal ergonomics and jury-rigged Heath Robinson clusters of ancillary equipment. Then there's the lenses.

  • And so it goes, on and on.
    The 24-70 is nothing more than a useful way of expressing EFOV. I imagine that 90% of the likely customers for cameras in this product sector are well aware of what the...

  • Trific! Fills a real hole in the market - up to now there's been nothing with 8 wheels, just miserable 2- and 4-wheel examples; pathetic girly-bags more suitable for cosmetics. This one will do...

  • "Weather-resistant"
    A worthless designation, now popular with many manufacturers since it actually costs nothing to offer. What are the chances of getting a warranty replacement/repair when these...

  • "Unboxing..."
    The most pitiful symptom of a bankrupt consumer culture - "bankrupt" in both a literal and metaphorical sense.
