Open Mike: Fun, the Final Frontier Fun is the missing "feature." Wait, what ? I dont get it. There are extreme fun cameras out there. That's too long to read before the camera itself is completely outdated and consigned to the dustbin of history. I know its not the camera he speaks of, but I use a D700 from 2008. I think I could manage to read a 500 pages manual in 11 years. In fact I'm quite convinced it should take like 3 hours, tops - manual pages dont contain much text and much of the text in manuals can usually be skipped anyway. A wellmade digital camera such as a D700 can last very long, and will even after all that time still produce as great results as it produced in the beginning.
