Canon EOS-M Confession: "We blew it."

QuoteQuote:
In a candid interview*, Canon Small Project Manager Kawasaki Suzuki admitted that the mirrorless EOS-M camera was “a complete and utter tragedy on the scale of Hamlet” and that it “brought much shame to the house of Canon.”

That's a rare instance of camera humor. Not quite the Onion, but snarky enough.

I was verrrrrry close to putting "Donkey Balls" in the title. In retrospect - I should have just gone for it....

“The EOS-M has…how do you American say it?…Donkey Balls.” To be honest, we are not quite sure what Suzuki meant by this analogy, so we asked for clarification. Suzuki responded, “When something holds great promise but fails because of one single thing.” We think he meant Achilles heel.

That's a funny website - loved the unboxing article for the Pentax K-3 and the articles on the Nikon Df as well.

And the item about the bloke who used an old DSLR at a soccer match - it was a K-5.

BTW, what gives with the many unboxing videos on the Internet?

They are useful for the professional camera testers. When it comes time to return it under the vendors return policy, it makes packing it up like it shipped much easier.

It has been going on a while.

I think at the core of it is the ability to visually proclaim "First" and claim whatever teaspoon of cred that comes with it.
