    I personally don't think I can take much more of this. The whole Ferrari thing I getting out of hand. And everything they put out just looks bad. Except for the cars, of course. Just stick with the cars, okay!

    the similarity is uncanny... no really :rolleyes: :p


    Yep... it's just like being at a real GP. :rolleyes:


    Ferrari really need to tighten their brand exclusivity and sophistication, abit like how Porsche and Audi do, because there's way too much tat bearing the legendary Prancing Horse. :rolleyes:

    That said, the 2004 Ferrari Olympus :p is looking alittle more considered and resolved than the 2003 model...

    But don't they realize that just using a chromed Prancing Horse, like the back of the actual cars would be far more aesthetically sophisticated.

    Ooooh.... remembers the Ferrari/Acer laptop... :eek: :p :p

    Looks like Ferrari is becoming the next Harley Davidson.

    From Gizmodo.com:

    "...the camera will also play the sound of a Ferrari engine when the camera powers up. And really, what says class more than a camera that makes vroom vroom noises?"

    Uh, maybe a camera that DOESN'T make vroom vroom noises?
    :rolleyes:

    Hey, I'm a "right angles" man myself (the classic B&O machines, my TiPowerBook, my trusty "brick" Volvo 850 Turbo) so I rather like the design. I'm so sick to death of the "oval roundy look" mentality in industrial design that, to me, was just fine for Ford Taurus, once-upon-a-time-long ago. The current vogue has even "infected" the latest CD/DVD/FM radio combo player in the B&O lineup (looks exactly like a bathroom scale in a ladies' powder room) :mad: I've always lusted after the DeLorean, so I'm a fan of flat and sharp - But this camera? Well...not for 700 bucks, thank you.

    I like this camera actually. But I already have a nice $300 Kodak that's 4MP

    Well we have Ferrari PC laptops downunder...now cameras...
    Same revving sounds as the laptop does when it starts up... ;) What a selling point
