750z......

I think it might be something like an optio 750z with a mount for limited lenses...

Now that would be ''something beautiful"

Underwater DSLR with interchangeable lenses. If you buy 2 kits (Holiday discount avaiulable) you can join them together and use as a Underwater binoculars. Take stereoscopic images too with wirelessly synchronized shutters and AF modules.

Sorry I think this is more than a correction. If it was a correction there would not be so much taxpayers money being used to buy out banks and car companies....
Really, I think the majority of citizens (not all) in this country are as much to blame as CEOs. There were not enough people asking themselves "Should I?" as opposed to "Why not?". People living well beyond their means, people without enough self awareness to not borrow money for a house they knew they couldn't afford. Instead of buying a car that would suffice, buy one that was twice as much - hoping to make a statement to strangers that could care less. There are a lot of people that believe all these people are victims... There are people making money convincing the general public that they are all victims and they are not responsible for their own actions (I call it the news). It's an addiction pure and simple. We all wanted, when we wanted it, had it shipped overnight air so we wouldn't have to wait, never had a second thought, always someone there to hand out the money, convinced ourselves we needed it because we wanted it. All these things to fill voids in our lives... This rant all stemmed from us wondering about this wonderful new camera that's going to make us all better photographers - express ourselves better, but will it??? Maybe we are all victims to this marketing campain. Maybe we should get a good trial lawyer to put those evil camera makers in their place..... How dare they.

Anyways, there was a lot of growth in a short amount of time that went unchecked and now we are all paying for it... The economy is correcting itself - plain and simple.

We should all know by now that 2pm California is the new Zulu. Don't forget to adjust your watch.

We live in the age of rationalized selfishness. A closing age. But it is a mindset that has been conflated with patriotism since the election of 1980.

This mess is 30 years in the making.

The capital built by the 'Greatest Generation' was hedged against the egos of the last thirty years.

After all, if you buy into the last 30 years of rhetoric, there's nothing a tax cut and an ego can't solve.

Really this has been in the making for a lot longer than 30 years. There's no reason to assess blame other than to start a debate of who's political machine is better - they're both very good at rallying their masses to get what they want, but for the general well-being of the public they both suck. If we are ever to get out of this, our energy is best spent on fixing the problem as opposed to wasting it figuring out who to blame. And on that note, this discussion has gotten grossly off-topic and I think if we should continue this chat, we should start another thread in General Discussion.

not to mention a small minority of people who made a sh!tful of money off of them knowing all too well that it was a pile of bad paper. But who cares, it's their own fault.
There are reasons (mostly good) for rules and REGULATIONS.... some seem to forget that when looking the other way puts a wad of cash in their pocket...
There's enough blame for everyone... what you need is a return to MORALS in business and the social conscience beyond pure greed.
I'm sure there were a whole bunch of loan officers that said "hey everyone else is doing it, why not"
