    What is so great about this camera? It's a camera and it still takes pictures like every other camera. Though it costs alot, doesn't gurantee you that your pictures will be awesome.

    Maybe my 70 year old grandma might take better pics using a simple Digicam. *Pun Intended*

    After she took the photos, she just left the camera on the grass under the sun and went into the house!

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    She doesnt seem to be focusing the camera? Thought its manual focus? Not sure about the new hassy systems. I am still stuck in the Hassy 500CM & Hassy Xpan era.

    You could make the same video with any brand of digital camera.
    The video fails.
    Ease of use is a given in most digicams if the intention is to convince that a child can handle it.
    Any idiot can press a button.

    The video offends common people's sensibilities.
    Because most people (in Sing anyway) are struggling to make ends meet.
    And the video shows a child handling and leaving a costly luxury item on the grass in her garden like a throw away toy.

    The autofocus digicam in the video, assuming it is a Hassleblad H3D, costs US $34,000.

    So I will conclude that the video is in bad taste in these times of economic hardship.
    And I am a Hasselblad user, so it is not as if it is a brand war flaming statement from a fan of other MF brand.

    she's good, shoots in full manual mode (f4, 1/125s) and makes all the photographic decisions herself. puts many GWCs to shame!

    Wow, I'd got my 39th flr five roomer for 29K, much cheaper than a Hassy.

    Oh please, you're reading too much


    Though i do agree with you, anyone can use any camera. Not take great pictures, just 'use'

    Maybe they want to show that it is a Point and Shoot camera. That's why they showed a kid using it.

    But how many kids reallly use a Hassablad?

    If our kids watch this, they will ask.. can I have 1 Hassey? It sound as if that anyone can own a Hassey when it is so expensive.

    Whats the program is she using before Photoshop?
