 Post subject: Sony Questionaire?
PostPosted: Sun Sep 20, 2009 9:00 pm 
Saw this link on a popular review site (that can't be mentioned, or has the rules been updated since?)

Anyways, not sure if this is legit or not, but if it is, it goes up there with other Sony W*F moments. Enjoy, some of these questions are comical...why wouldn't I want a viewfinder on a SLR?

Found the same link over at http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/sony-survey_topic52353.html

Because it gets in the way of live view :P

The survey is real, I got a link sent to me from Sony probably because I registered the A350 when I got it.

But would it be a DSLR if it didn't have a viewfinder? Its just curious...either Sony wants to do away with viewfinders all together (unlikely) or develop something like the EP1 which is a live view only camera.

Sony needs to focus, IMHO!

Did the survey a while back, actually pretty interesting. Hope they'll do what we tell them to do...

Yes, preferably the SSM kind.

It's basically asking if we want a camera like the E-P1. I'm all for it but not at the expense of traditional models so I pretty much said no.
