it’s F-810 not F-180

The 2nd of 9 gadget reviews have come out today, you can check it here: http://news.inq7.net/lifestyle/index.php?index=1&story_id=55946, the first one being the Samsung SGH-E730, here: http://news.inq7.net/lifestyle/index.php?index=1&story_id=54497

BIG problem though, it’s supposed to be Fujifilm F-810 not F-180. Truth is, I submitted a first copy before the week long holiday that didn’t come out with that error, but I fixed it and sent a second fixed one later on, when I found I had a chance to. At the back of my mind there was a lingering thought thinking they might mix it up being so busy as they are, but I had spoken with my editor to expect a new copy and so I left it at that.

The strange thing is, I think some of the new edits I made came out, meaning that the new version was used. However I’m not really sure since they’ve edited it quite a bit anyway again to save space. I can never really understand the way they edit, sometimes in the past, it gets edited so much that things actually come out completely different. I’m quite used to it now though, so most I could do is just shrug. Really nothing I can do.

At any rate, I’ve had much time tinkering with the Fujifilm F-810, and I’ve got to say, I’m impressed. In fact, I so wanted to say that, and I pretty much did in the article as I submitted it, but like I said it’s been pretty much hacked so a lot of my declarations saying so are gone.

Pity, since I really like it, and really that says a lot. I seldom give gadgets a full two thumbs up, but this one did purely because it’s so easy to use as I said so in the article. I’m sure a lot of folks think that’s just lip, but really, it’s terrific, and I highly recommend it.

That is if you can handle the approx $700.00 ~ $680.00 (!!) price (accdg. to this site), which is off the wall, but I really think it’s worth it. All those folks who’ve bought digicams only to have them serve as decoration on their shelves need to check this one out. The little added width aside, it’s so easy to use you would wanna bring and use it, which is really the point of digicams (or gadgets) if you think about it.

Hope the error gets reported by PDI! Somehow I doubt it though.
