But do you think the link I posted looks like a toy camera?

I actually do. Please do not take offense. It is just my opinion, but I think it looks very toyish compared to my dSLR (or even not compared to anything).

I just looked at the link. Actually, no, it does not look like a toy camera. In fact, you really can't tell that this camera runs on AA's. I was primarily talking about tiny cameras which took AA's.

Too late. A $500 camera isn't a toy and it doesn't look like a toy if you see it up close. It looks just like my Minolta SLR. Maybe we have two different definitions of what a toy looks like. I see a toy as something like this:

Thanks roadfix. I never thought my camera looked like a toy, especially not for the price I paid.

Exactly right.

Just because it's not a fancy Nikon dSLR doesn't mean it's a toy. It's been a great camera and takes great pictures. I would LOVE to see what your idea of a toy is.

I never said it was a toy. You were posted a question asking if it was thought that the camera in the link looked like a toy. I answered. We each have our own opinions and there is nothing wrong with that.

I am glad you love your camera and that it takes great pictures.

No, I asked ROADFIX if he thought it looked like a toy because he was talking about all AA battery cameras looking like toys. It was a specific question for a specific poster not an open invitation to bash someone's personal best friend.

Aesthetically, I like the look and feel of the Canon G10. I love that retro rangefinder look in a digicam. I've been seriously thinking about getting this camera for a little more serious picture taking.

Callisto, I was not bashing your personal best friend. I was expressing my opinion to the question you stated. I respect your right to your opinions. I would hope you would do me the same courtesy. If you have a question for a specific person and do not want others to answer then perhaps you should post that question in a PM and not in a public thread.

In any event, how about we get this thead back on topic now.
