It appears to me that as soon as you buy a 5mp camera, an updated 6mp model is released a couple of months later. You get the 6mp one, then a 7mp version is on the shelves!
It appears to my eye that the 7mp version was all ready to ship when the 6mp one was being released. Are we being sold dated hardware as state of the art' tech? Once every possible mug has bought the earlier version, then they release the eye candy they have had in their vaults for the past two months (at the same time, now having the 8mp version ready to go in a few months)?
Do you get the feeling that we are being taken for muppets by the digicam industry? I do.
