A break from the philosophy, theology, and politics.
I need to use a digital camera for my job. What bothers me is how there isn't a really straight line from the cheapest camera to the best. The features all mix and match. I picked up a Kodak Z981 Easyshare. Huge optical zoom! ~270 buck camera! Nice features all around. I was replacing a Samsung S1050 I got for 100 bucks a few years ago.
Well, the Samsung has a custom white balance option. The Kodak, even though from what I read that's purely software rather than hardware? No go. Presets only.
I'm guessing there's a corporate logic to this, but I wish I could figure it out.
