and i still cant understand so much discussions and either positiv or negativ emotions about a camera which already does not exist,- and if it will be out it will not be a revolution in any aspect cause its based on a many years existing design.
before so many commented in a nearly hysteric way the hy/avi positiv, now the opposite......
why not wait till the camera will have met the first hands and than to discuss about ?
its often a nice board here , but this hy/avi discussions remind me in dpreviews canon forum.
Rainer, agreed. I'd prefer to see the emotional/flame content of these discussions taken down a stop or two. Speaking for myself, I'm interested in simply gathering information that I can add to my mix of research, dealer tests and personal experience in order to make an informed decision...
I can understand why folks feel angry about a business which used to produce unrivalled quality and which now charges much more for products with lower perceived
quality, fewer options, all coming at a time of major changes in the industry and marketplace. Scary, anger inducing stuff. I'd just like to see some of that vented off pre-post. Manufacturers should hear this stuff, for sure. And I think it's fine to say "man this pisses me off" without the smoldering flames directed at fellow forum members.
I'm resigned to the fact that digital is buggy and that firmware will need (timely, accurate) updates (that will then fix the problem). Hardware shouldn't have these problems out of the box, and quality control should be top notch. Bad hardware makes me angry too, especially when I've paid handsomely for the privelege of using it. And this anger should be heard publically. It's information as well. I just wish that we could separate the anger part of the post from the information part a bit more. I guess what I'm trying to say is that really, we're all on the same side here as consumers. Let's not beat each other up for using product X nor irrationally defend bad business practices where they exist.
That being said, here's a vintage 2006 3D rendering (some of you have seen this already of course) of the back change on the Sinar Hy6. Not incredibly detailed, may or may not be current, may not provide any useful information, may send some into a sudden random apoplectic rage.
And, in order to save time, the knee-jerk responses can include:
1. That was clearly designed by blind misanthropes that have never touched a camera
2. That tells me nothing without seeing it for real, you have wasted precious minutes of my life and I want them back
3. Product X/Y is better/worse in my experience/dreams/pants
(liklihood of negative response to this post, 95%)
