To run a blog like this you look at a thousand things, remember a hundred, and write about ten. Recently (I mentioned my birthday, and my age—I suppose it's related) I've been having more trouble keeping the threads alive in my mind. I let more things drop, and lose some things I meant to write about. Occasionally I even offend someone along the way. But I don't mean to. It's just that it's getting tougher for me to juggle it all in my memory.
So I awoke with a start this morning to the realization that I never continued the "Best Digital Cameras" postings! Arrrgh. Here's Part I, but it makes no sense without a Part II and maybe even a Part III.
Sorry about that. I'll get on it.
Meanwhile, a question. Assuming there is such a thing—many will demur, with good reason—is it possible to pick, out of current offerings, one best all-around all-purpose camera? With everything in the best possible balance—image quality and printability, price and value, operational strengths, versatility and utility, dealer network and service, system, functionality, and user experience?
If you had to pick, which camera would you say that is? I have one in mind, but I'll hold off mentioning my notions of it lest I unduly influence others.
If you don't want to play, or think it's a stupid question, fair enough. So don't play. But I like this sort of mental exercise in connoisseurship. I think it can be clarifying, and hence possibly useful.
...Well, maybe that's rationalizing. It can be fun, is probably more like it.
What would you say? Assuming you had to pick one.
