    No mention of a photographic high priest preaching the Gospel of the Golden Ratio? I am disappoint. :tongue:

    Camera of the year is the Ricoh GR. It ended the quest for the perfect pocket camera. It can`t get any better than that.

    What fun!

    Obviously this person drank the bong water, visited a few photo forums, consulted the Honest Book of Real Truth, and sat down to write.

    He or she is the Patrick McManus of photography. Well done!

    Cheers, Jock

    Thanks for the bump Amin and all the positive feedback folks! I'm really having putting the site together and writing and photoshopping stuff. Look out for more soon; there are a lot of sacred cows of photography that need slaying lol.

    Don't mention slaying of any cows, unless it's purely figurative John - or Mark will be down on you in a flash.:wink:

    There are several lines that made laugh out loud:

    "lots of fiddly manual controls that men of a certain age like to fondle. "

    "But really, it’s as if someone took a really good BMW sedan and dressed it up to look like a car from Downton Abbey. "

    " this camera has the heart of a 2012 Sony wrapped in a body that looks like Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus got drunk, did some twerking and whatnot, and then threw up."

    Whew, time to wipe my eyes and see if I can stop giggling. . .

    Cheers, Jock
