I did the survey and the question didn't mention digital.
Fair enough. Can’t trust reporting these days.
The headline is digital (red box) but the question isn't (red underlined).
I see. The characters appear otherwise the same between ] and [. Thanks. I'll go and lie down now.
It is obviously a matter of personal preference but I found the ME Super too fiddly, especially the buttons to change shutter speed. I notice that almost every major brand uses a control wheel for shutter speed and aperture now. Anyway, I preferred toe OM1, OM2 and OM4 when they were current and later the Nikon FM2n (though that had its foibles too0.
Many I knew at the time owned ME Supers, now I too found them fiddly, the MX was my preference. Worse than the buttons for altering the shutter speed on the ME Super was that there was no display externally, rectified on the later Super A.
You could say Rolls Royce, Jaguar or Land Rover are the most popular motor vehicles, but they certainly aren’t the most prolific.
As with many things in life, what we have is not necessarily what we like. I quite like Kylie Minogue, but I’m extremely unlikely to wake up next to her
Probably a good thing.
Long, long ago I got a summer holiday job working for a film production company (unnamed to protect the guilty). None of the actors or actresses looked anything like their publicity shots, when they staggered in for a 7 a.m. call.
I’d risk it
Apart from me, who else could say they look their best at silly o'clock...
Me too. I look rough when I arise, and that’s the status quo for the rest of the day.
No, the readership of Netorabo. Fact that it is 8000 respondents is redundant by at least 800%. That will not have added appreciably to its accuracy, or factored for the inbuilt skew of it being a self-elected sample from a very restricted universe. It describes nothing other than the preference of those followers of Netorabo who wished to express a preference.
Err, the Japanese market comment was based on my experience of the Japanese market. Loads of love for Pentax, and, demographically, a LOT of older salarymen who buy top end stuff like Sony, Nikon and Canon to use but still get warm and fuzzy for Pentax.
Having said that, your point is correct in that any survey is only reflective of its respondents and it would be wrong to assume the numbers hold outwith the survey respondents.
I think I would have great doubts about any that did!
Personally I don’t care about the survey. I fancy a Ricoh GR but doubt I will ever own one. I have no sense of brand I just like the camera. Don
Always wanted the 21mm film version or the digital with the adapter to mimic that.
I used a GR1 for a while (and for some reason still have the tiny lenshood in its leatherette bag), I traded it in for a 24mm Nikkor, while we were visiting Canterbury and I found that the 24mm was much more useful.
I’ve got the Ricoh GRii. Might not be the camera I use the most, but (apart from my phone) it’s the camera I have with me the most.
Agree. Pentax is still a lovely brand for me, although they lost the plot on products 30 years ago.
Whenever I think of Pentax Spotmatic cameras, the main things I associate with it are how narrow its body seems and even more so, the very distinctive shape of its wind-on lever.
It also occurs to me that back then, when advertising was far less pervasive, maybe, just maybe, people thought 'Well, if someone is going to put that much effort into the design of something as basic as this, Pentax are going to be even fussier about what you can't see.'?
