Mancubus said:It amazes me how they milk the hell out of these super old sensors and processors, releasing so many entry level cameras that are BARELY different from each other and announcing them as new.
And most people who buy these have the false illusion that they will be able to take professional looking photos just by pointing and shooting on auto mode, then be very disappointed when the photos turn out to be inferior to what they get in their smartphones because the phones do a much better automatic processing job to get the best out of the colors and dynamic range.
I bet over 95% of these cameras will see less than 5000 in shutter count in 10 years, most buyers will just be excited with their new toy for a week and then tuck it away somewhere.
As a guy who knows how is that working 220 hours in month for 150$ in third world country i dont think that this point have much sense. We have now new 1300d Kit for 350$ and this camera have a metal mount. Maybe in future price on this 4000d will drop even to 300, but this is a territory of a very big and popular used gears market. And you can buy for 300$ something like 60d in condition "careful amateur use". And you can not convince many people that it will be a less reliable option than this plastic toy.Sharlin said:
