Why do reviewers from Amateur Photographer consider USB charging and Touch Screen to be such a big deal? A couple of years ago you got a proper battery charger independent from the camera. Now many cameras are only shipped with a USB lead to connect the camera directly to a wall plug, leaving the battery in situ when charging. This not only means that the camera is unavailable whilst charging, but any fault with the battery could destroy the camera. This does actually happen you know! Also, does everyone really have to have touch screen technowledgy? This can be hit and miss at times, and leave you often with a monitor covered in smears. To me this is just another fad that has been incorporated by manufacturers just to get an edge over the competition. And whilst on this subject, WiFi is another unreliable hit and miss feature with very little real appeal. If you must put a picture on you smart phone or tablet, then why not use the thing to take the picture in the first place. Sometimes I think we are losing touch when it comes to making real cameras for real photographers.
