A Chinese friend in Shanghai asked me for advice on digital cameras. I advised him to buy the Canon i5, a nice and small fancy camera. He checked it out online, and said: No, it's too small! I said, well, small is convenient, you don't need to drag a heavy camera around if you're not a photographer. He said: I'm a guy, I SHOULD be dragging around a heavy camera!
OK, I know that guys need to prove how tough they are, but I do find it a bit strange to select a camera because it is heavy.
