Debate-a-thon among dpreview users: Camera of the Year
Fill up the kettle and the coffee machine at the same time! Dpreview launched a "Camera of the Year" poll and the comments discussion has turned into a debate-a-thon with 1200+ comments. Bonus points if you read all 1200+ of them :) No one has been able to muster 60 votes to end debate ;-) You must login with a dpreview account in order to vote (presumably to reduce duplicate and triplicate votes by exuberant fans). The results will be revealed at dpreview on Dec-31-2012.
But I will spare you the wait. We all know that the camera of the year in 2012 is the Nikon Coolpix S01 ;-)
Speaking of year-enders, Roger Cicala at the Lens Rentals blog posted a "Dear Santa" post, altruistically asking Santa to divert resources from his gifts and send some gifts to our beloved camera manufacturers instead! Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Fuji, Leica, Sigma, Tamron and more are on the "Dear Santa" list. Thanks to one of our readers for the alert!
