I was once again today admiring the design classic known as E1, and just how easy to handle and use it really is. In particular with the grip and GS2 strap, makes for a fantastic intuitive experience.

So this set me thinking, what were the things that really annoyed me about previous cameras regardless of brand. Other than reliability problems ( my cameras come fishing and can suffer some abuse ) the one that really stands out for me was the Konica Minolta A200. The people at KM put the on/off button next to the shutter button and you can guess the rest! I never got used to it, other than this it was a fine camera.

So it begs the question, what bad camera designs drove others on the forum nuts? Interested to hear....
