Here is a summary or excerpt from an article that has just been published on DPNow:

* Survey is for North American residents only

Have you often asked yourself about your camera - why did they do that? The camera industry relies heavily on market intelligence concerning the design and marketing of their cameras. This is why we encourage interchangeable lens digital camera users to join DPNow and InfoTrends to fill in a survey about your use of such cameras. You never know you could earn yourself a $20 Amazon voucher and one lucky responder will win $500.

I suppose we're all guilty of living in the wrong (or right) country ....

We could try cheating ...

This should have been posted on the US-net instead of the INTER-net. Pretty darn useless survey, if the majority of customers gets blocked in step #3

Oh dear.

I told them I was a 19 year old college girl from Idaho.

I got a bit carried away and now I think I've got a date.

Fail on page 2 : is this a record?
I was pretending to be an 80-year old Mormon ... only 1-79 years need apply.
Never mind.

They need a survey on how to design internet surveys.

Oh. On my second attempt I said I was a 25 year old millionaire from Boise.

See you Saturday, Pete *couple

The personal information they ask for - no bloody chance.

Out of interest it won't accept anyone 80 years or more but will accept a 1 year old.

Hi,

I'm Mary Smith, a 79 year old American Indian from Kentucky (I was hoping that a later question would involve my occupation, so that I could answer that "I fry the chicken.")

I'm single, live with my parents and have children in every age group listed. My latest camera, bought on special offer at Wallmart, is a Leica S2, but I did consider a P&S as an alternative. I shoot JPEGS in full auto or scene modes only and my main reason for buying the Leica was to impress my neighbours.

I specialize in erotic and boudoir photography and the events that I most shoot at are Swinger's Club meetings. I'm a beginner at photo editing and only use one click auto adjustments but I use CS6.

Should blend in well with my compatriates! :D

Guys, if you don't agree with the information requested then please just leave it.

Registering false information does no good to the survey and no good to us as partners of InfoTrends who are a respectable company. I'm sorry that it appears that the survey is for US residents only - I will clarify this as soon as possible.

I lied about where I live but was reasonable accurate about the rest, and got in a few positive comments about Olympus along the way!

Take it from me....you are living in one of the best countries in the world second only to Canada!!*chr

Seriously, having lived through a serious health problem I spent over three weeks in two hospitals in London, had absolutely wonderful attention from the many Doctors and Nurses that helped me to recover. Don't ever belittle your country because look what is happening in Europe....it will eventually dissolve into the way it once was....keep their history, currency and culture before the EUC and the Euro which will also go!

OK folks the survey was always intended for North American residents and it's partly my fault as it was mentioned in passing to me a while back when they proposed the survey to us. But there was no re-emphasis when the survey was confirmed with us.

But we do have a few stateside member don't we? :)

I skipped the survey.

I'm a failure anyway and don't need to be told again!

You too, eh? We should get together some time! *lovesick

BTW I do have quite a few children, but my fried chicken is delicious. I had to kill an ex-army officer to get the recipe!

Love,

Mary (from Kentucky)

97.3% of the time *yes

But having lived in the US, I would not have been surprised had it done so...:rolleyes:
