I need to get this off my chest. It all started when I was backing up my images to my external hard drives and I started to reminisce looking at old raw files, going back as far as the Canon 300D.
Anyway, I've had my fair share of DSLR cameras over the past eight or nine years, like most of the Canon Rebel's, 20D, 5D, Nikons D70, D90, D300, D700, Olympus E330 and E420 and now I've had a couple of Panasonics. Here's the truth of the matter, Panasonic is the largest electronics company on the planet, if I'm not mistaken and they tend to be the most expensive, for what you really get. Out of all my cameras, I've had, only the ones from the largest electonics company on the planet (Panasonic) don't allow their images to auto rotate(you know, so you don't have to cock your head sideways to see it) and also they are the only raw files that won't open up in ACR, from an external hard drive. They open up in Finder, where you can see nothing but the picture. You have to down load them to your computers hard drive to see them and or edit them.
Panasonic reminds me of a big lumix, big and dumb.
