Did the Chef use poison sumac for the quiche? If not he should have 8-) BTW the popular iPhone doesn't have even one card-slot.

#nonsatirealert This is not an either-or world. There are more than two choices to be made—some people like sweet, some people like sour, while some like both. The fuddie-duddies like older technology, the avant-garde like bleeding edge and the pragmatic pick the right tool for the job. So please, Alec Knowitall, don't tell me I should agree with you 100%, or that I'm a cretin who believes 100% the opposite. There are plenty of numbers between 0 and 255 for me to choose.

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.

Thanks, Eamon! Made my day. :-)

Have absolutely no idea what this post is supposed to mean...none.

[He's saying that some "first impressions" video reviewers are evaluating the Z series in terms of what they thought it was going to be, rather than what the people who made it intended it to be. And also that you need to use something before judging how well it works. (Taste it before declaring how it tastes, in the analogy.) --Mike]

Did you want fries with that?

It's bad enough that every YouTuber is harping on about the lack of a second memory card slot, but then I have read the same comment regurgitated throughout every comment section on the internet. I have never used the second memory card slot on my D810, I'll bet most amateur hobbyists who are commenting don't either. Hey ho... I'll happily wait for real world reviews and ignore the twaddle.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

Breakfast at the Fuji Diner would have been much better what with the Fuji Magic syrup.

Is it still satire, if you need to provide a "Satire Alert" ?

I know some people don't "get" irony, but you also need the relevant background to the story, to understand an ironic comment about it.

If you haven't been watching the Nikon "Z" launch + reviews, then Eamon's comment might be too left field.

For the record, I found Eamon's article and Steve Renwick's reply absolutely spot-on and funny.

[I discovered in the early days of TOP that many of my readers are not native English speakers and sometimes didn't pick up on irony. When you lead someone to take something seriously that wasn't meant seriously, you make a fool of them. I didn't want to do that to my readers. Hence the tag for satire. That way even if someone doesn't get it, they still don't need to feel they've been played. --Mike the Ed.]

Imagine, a camera without a pop-up flash. And it's aimed at pros!

K4kafka has a friend: it flew right over my head too.

Maybe because I don't care about new cameras at all. What I have is already more versatile than am I.


Some movie reviewers occasionally do that too. They tell me why the movie that they think should have been made would have been better.

Sometimes fancy restaurants go broke. Pancakes and coffee is a well tried and tested recipe.

Eamon, that was perfect. And so concise. Awesome.

Again and again, TOP justifies being on my "check here every day" locations on the web.
