Maybe a switch to decaf can help?
You mean, to really exacerbate those pre-coffee-morning jitters to the point that he'll shake enough to just drop the camera on the floor, and thus stop obsessing over it not having SR?

I *really* want this camera, but after yesterday's disastrous effort with my GRD3, (the third in the past couple of weeks, with no GRD success at all) I'm beginning to think I can no longer shoot with an unstabilised camera. Ive been horrified at the level of blur and movement in my shots lately, nothing seems to be working for me except the K-5 and XZ-1. Think I will hold off, indefinitely. Colour me extremely disappointed.
Well, I have the GRD 4 which is stabilized but I have to say that it's way less effective than the SR of my Pentax cameras. So that I thought it was deactivated at the beginning because most of my shots where blurry as well.

Then after setting the maximum shutter speed at 1/30 those blurry shots went away

I'm sure the Scotch helped.

Unlikely since I don't drink Scotch. Rum or Vodka may have been involved though.

Anyway, another hands-on by a french website, with some ISO tests and comparisons with the Nikon A:

Thanks for that link.

OK, that's the second website review where the Coolpix A has lens IQ issues. The first one was DP Review.

To be honest, that's not like Nikon. Odd.

Well effin effity eff eff eff, do ya think Nikon might have done something worse than our friendly little company here just to get to market first? People have been posting about Nikon's QC and design issues for months. I actually think is is like Nikon.

Ah hell. Pentax/Ricoh can't do anything right. Why do I bother.

From what SRS told me, they had a lot of presale. So, expect some photos appearing soon.

This camera is still not available in any shop in Australia – apart as a preorder from Pentax Australia website.
Even 2 months after the announcement, I still can't see it in real life, anywhere.

I wonder if Nikon has similar logistics and availability issues? (I don't buy Nikon's gear, so I wouldn't know; any info on that?)

Well, it was said, when it came out that it was so much waited for it would be pretty hard to get a hand on one.
Seems that was right
