Strangely it's nearly always you.
If you're prepared to explain why putting $0.00000002 worth of plastic and electronics into a camera is such a massive hassle for a company, I'm happy to debate the relative merits.
If you just want to wave your willy around about how clever you are, I've lost 3 relatives this week and I don't have the time for another confrontation with you where I try to get you to talk and debate instead of posturing around trying to make other...Show more →
Firstly, you're acting like a jerk. You're trying to call me a dick, but are doing the same thing and hiding behind the death of friends/family as the reason for your strife, when in fact, you haven't a clue what's going on in almost any of our lives... Im sorry for your loss, but pal, acting like a jerk and then saying well people died and I don't have time for this...that's weak and does the dead a disservice.
With that out of the way, seriously, you're complaining about crippling of camera bodies and say that it only costs 2 cents...in reality you have no idea how much it costs. But beyond that, does that mean they should
Because it is 2 cents? Do we draw the line at 5 cents? 10?
What point is buying a higher product then, if the base product is going to as good as the best? Seriously? If instead of being coy, posturing yourself, and calling me names, YOU can tell me why?
How much does it cost for full weather sealing? Why isn't every rebel weather sealed?
Where do you draw the line? At what point is a company allowed to differentiate product lines? I'm not sticking up for canon. You know it costs like 20 cents to add a 4x6 print to an order but photographers charge 5 or even 10 dollars for it....should they just give it away for free? I've worked management level in retail and seen the costs of some clothing, I have seen polo shirts sell for $40 and they cost the store 6 cents... No bull, no posturing no being a jerk, no willy waving, 6 cents. Should we have given it away because they bought something else?
Where do you draw the line? And at what point does adding more to the lesser model take away from the higher model?
