"Guys, if you try for a class action on this you should also try for ones against all the manufacturers for marketing 4K cameras that aren’t, that’s the photosite count not the pixel resolution."

That could be applied to every camera out there, not just 4K cameras. People complained about Sigma marketing its effective resolution rather than actual for the Foveon sensor, ignoring the fact that ALL camera manufacturers did the same thing.

It's pretty ridiculous and misguided all around. NONE  the camera manufacturers that provide media make their own SSDs. They're all cherry picked and rehoused to ensure that they actually work since so many SSD manufacturers game their specs. Why not go after them?

It's nonsensical... definitely right to stay out of it.

Then try Kodak for film labelled as ISO500 that wasn’t close, 5296. Then look at the lighting manufacturers figures for light output. Then…

 

We work in a business where manufacturers often, if not mostly, use “optimistic” numbers.

 

You’ll not win this.

 

I don’t want CML dragged into it, I don’t want it to be seen that we are instigating this.

 

Chase this pipedream but please don’t involve CML, we can’t afford it.

 

That’s not to say that CML will back away if we think things are wrong and we’ll take the legal problems. We’ve had the lawyers on us 4 times so far, we won each time. We have to choose our fights and this is not a CML fight.
