Just put some gaffer's tape over the name. That fixes everything, dontchaknow.
Ah. I didn't think of that.

I tried over my eyes but found there to be some somewhat unpleasant side effects.

At work we have printers by Fuji Xerox. I think I heard that Fuji had something to do with photography once... ;-)

... and who's Samsung ?
Samsung?

Why they are a hociR predecessor. (Didn't I mention the GX10 earlier?)

Oh, yeah, and they also make cell phones. I have a {Samsung} Rugby II. Great ruggedized flip phone. As hard as I am on them the Rugby has proven to be a great investment in a cell phone.

Like Timex, it takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'!

And it is another reason I won't get a K3.

Yes, great build quality, too. Weather resistant as well. Has really stood the test of time.

Edit: Forgot, it must've been the peak of their production.

Because Ricoh is known as a copier company... I would never want to own a DSLR that was made by Xerox.
It was a camera company before it was a copier company.

Not so sure about the user interface, though. The learning curve is said to be quite steep.

Yes, you've got a point - this product hasn't been real hot since 1707.

...or worse: 3776m! Shocking, really.

Absolutely! And everyone knows that copier companies such as Ricoh, Konica, Minolta, or Canon don't make cameras*...or is it that camera companies such as Ricoh, Konica, Minolta, or Canon don't make copiers? I dunno, I am so confused


Steve

(...all of the above are top-ten copier companies. Yeah, I know, Konica or Minolta as a camera companies is ancient history, but like Ricoh, they were a camera makers first and branched into copiers much later in the company's history. Can I help it that there is more money in business machines than in cameras?)

All the talk here about igunaq has got me thinking about Thai food. I love Thai food and there are certain similarities between igunaq and fish sauce.

Or in endoscopes than in cameras? That goes for both Pentax and Olympus.

I know Pentax medical and Pentax cameras are different corporations now. The general public probably doesn't. My ENT surgeon had a "snoot-o-scope" with a big red Pentax logo on it.
