Racist camera?

->> I saw this and thought you might get a chuckle. Apparently, the Nikon S630 has some sort of blink detection. The problem is it doesn't always work right if you happen to be asian!

We cannot deny someone's right to tag any comment on this board as inappropriate. Of course, I'll just tag your comment as informative to counteract their tag.

->> Thanks Michael!

If someone was offended, I sincerely apologize. I would have preferred an email from the person. For goodness sake, there is SO little humor here and when people use the dreaded Inappropriate mark, it is a real downer.

Thank you to all that marked Funny or Informative for support.

->> I love how you can be marked "off topic" when your responding directly to an "inappropriate" comment in the very thread you yourself started.

My statement of course now will get a flood of "huh" lol

I'll hit you up with a 1-2 combo of informatively funny
