Thought that might get your attention. I'm not complaining about the quality of images you can get with a digital camera. Or the workflow. No, I'm referring to the fact that most cameras now are... meh. :meh: Not technologically. I mean aesthetically. Now I don't mean fixed lens super-zooms, they tend to look reasonably unique, which is interesting because the same was true of APS film cameras of the same type. They always seem to have more of a 'sci-fi' thing going on. But all dSLRs look the same (or very very similar) with the exception of Olympus' which look a bit different. I don't doubt that the standard body shape with the big right hand grip is a decent functional design, but surely we can have a bit more variety? The worst offenders though... point-&-shoots. In fact the thing that prompted me to make this spectacularly pointless thread was seeing this... not the new Nikons, look down... Olympus have not one, not two but eight new silvery point-n-shoots. And each of them, for want of a better word, is entirely meh. This from the company that came up with the Mju/Stylus (both film and digital) and before that the XA series - IMO the greatest designs not only of any camera but of any anything, ever... and now they produce meh. I look at all the other companies and their point-&-shoots are all equally meh. Canon IMO have the right idea with the G9, a camera that not only is nice but looks nice... prior to that their S70/S80, the Olympus Mju-Mini aka Stylus Verve, Pentax waterproof WP models, the (square!) Nikon Coolpix SQ... are among the few that get my :thumbup: for design (which is of course in no way subjective...) So Dear Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Olympus, Sony, Fuji, Sigma, Ricoh, Panasonic, etc... please can we have a bit more :crazy: :Joker: in our :camera:, and a bit less :meh:. Over and out.
