In my recent post, What I Want in a Digital Camera (November 11, 2005), I listed a bunch of criteria that are
important essential to me to have in a digital camera. Some folks emailed me with ideas (or posted them at DigitalMediaThoughts) so I thought I'd start a list of cameras that folks have suggested, but which ultimately fail to meet one of my absolute must-have criteria.
So, listed below, in true nerd fashion, is a table of suggested digital cameras that come within one inadequacy or missing feature of being my "ideal". The features I require (as detailed in my original post) are listed as columns and each row shows a "near miss" camera that comes close to meeting my requirements (all links go to DPReview.com).
