The K-01 also reminds me of the classic Volvo 240 series. And also of the Commodores, somehow...I agree, Dennis. Recently I made a point to Entropic Remnants that when I consider the K-01, I think "picture-taking machine" rather than "camera". I think that mindset relieves both the K-01 and me of preconceived notions regarding operation and handling.
I believe I also compared the K-01 to a 1980's Volvo...
It's UGLY! And, the most aggravating thing, is the silly rubber card cover, that is a pain to close properly. BUT just get a look at the files this thing can produce!I marvel at the mixed emotions that the K-01 evokes. I can't think of another consumer product that has had such a love/hate response. I am amazed at the people that have bought and sold, then bought and resold, then in cases bought a third time.
What is it about this machine that creates this type of response?
I'm sorry Simon, I am the one that started the hijack of your thread. I thought your question was answered and you had made a decision. I guess I just started rambling.So I started with what I seemed a simple question and what do we end up with - comparisons with cars (ancient Volvo's no less) and The Commodores followed by various interpretations of ugliness. All I can say is my, now very appropriate theme tune is ---- Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick (and I have no idea how to link)
Glad to hear that you aren't offended. I tend to be unfocused and a whole lot undisciplined so I am easily led off on tangents. My iPad using Forum Runner does not display smiley faces, so I'da missed that anyway.Hey - please - all meant as fun. The more rambling the better. I am really enjoying the thread and thought to add my own bits to it - especially as I am listening to Jethro as I type. My question has long been answered by all you great people here. Should have used smiley face in previous post - but still getting use to interface.
