    Actually Sony is four different brands into one:

    Samsung
    Onkyo
    Nobisco
    Yakult

    Each produces part of the components for the camera.
    making fun of a brand name is childish.

    Did you guys just mentioned something bout brand bashing ?

    What Sony will have to do is to revolutionize the traditional ways of marketing and distributing photographic products.

    They need to cut out the middlemen and sell directly to consumers. To do that they have to make their wholely owned outlets everywhere e.g. roadside stalls, pasar malam, mobile vans etc. etc.

    It is a great product that should be communalized to the great proletariats and every comrade will have equal access to it.

    This is how a camera marketing genius should do it:

    brandbashing or not, i dun really care. once u shoot long enough, u will realise the brand doesnt bother.

    under normal circumstances, any brand would fair as well. give me a pentax, a canon, a nikon, a sony alpha. for gawds sake, even the good old minolta film slr or olympus. i could still shoot.

    perhaps for extreme conditions things may differ significantly, but then ask yourself, how often most normal hobbiest need to shoot F1 cars or even football?

    its more a matter of ridiculous pride and self-justification for the money spent i guess.

    i used to think canon was top. until i shot long enough with many brands to realise the difference is insignificant.

    if i were to choose again? i'll take a brand that is cheaper or on par with most others and invest in that. long term run i'll save money while ensuring i have sufficient lvl of gear to shoot what i need

    I thought the general perception of John 3:16 was that they were "too friendly" and hence customers had to wait a long time to be served...

    If Apple buys Sony, the recently started Sony camera division may be considered as non-core activity and thus hived off. Sony itself has pulled the plug mercilessly on its own product lines e.g. the minidisc division. It was killed in a short time once decision was made, just like that.

    All companies mercilessly pull the plug on poorly selling products (which the camera division of Sony is NOT). As for your article link:

    "Apple might be tempted to keep Sony's digital camera and TV screen business. It would have to suppose that the Apple brand would help sell the products at premium prices."

    the way Apple is run by Mr Jobs (read an article whom the interviewee was his ex-old pal...),
    there's no way Sony would survive an acquisition like that... and then we would have to live with iAlphas that look like large rectangular white blocks and lenses that look like... sleek metal pipes.

    The only different is the body.

    If people are not brand conscious they will only make one camera for everybody and everyone.

    And the brand will just be "Camera".

    Then got multitouch zoom, Facetime, and iPod features. No integration with Lightroom/PS, cannot drag and drop files, no CF/SD card, must use iTunes to sync your photos. If memory space used up, have to buy new camera to shoot again, or delete all your photos.
