Is there anything more useless than
Mar 16, 2008

reviews posted to dpreview's Camera Database with all 1, all 3 or all 5 ratings and no explanatory comments? I wish these posters would find something more useful than to distort a camera's rating based on their own unsupported biases.

I'm bored by people who give a camera a rating before its release and those that give them additional ratings to "balance" things out. The numbers can never balance out accurately anyway.

Numerical ratings (unless the standards are constant) aren't nearly as important as hands on experience shared.

Look at the nonsense already posted for the new Canon 450D. Better yet, don't waste your time until the camera has been on the market for awhile.

Sorry for the rant.
