Clunkiness is the new black

There’s been quite a lot of chat on photography sites about the Canon G7. Why? Because of its ‘clunky’ feel. It reminds people, apparently, of ‘real’ cameras. The top view, for example, is supposedly reminiscent of a Contax or even an M-Leica.

A guy in the Financial Times even claimed it was a ‘rangefinder camera’. Odd that this doesn’t appear in the technical specs.

Stand by for a new trend in ‘retro’ digital cameras.
