On DPReview launches GearShop news story (327 comments in total)

With the launch of GS, will DPR start doing reviews of accessories (e.g. strobes, tripods, monitors, camera bags, etc.)?

CameraLabTester: Never mind all the crap negative vibes of members...

If you could offer a price sweeter than the other mob, I will buy from you.

Money talks, cameras snap, recorders listen.

Amazon is one tough competitor.

Just ask Apple.

BillSprague: Amazon bought dpreview on May 14, 2007.

See: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2007/5/14/amazonacquiresdpreview

Dpreview opens a camera and gear store on July 17, 2013! I'm surprised it took 6 years.

I enjoy shopping at Amazon. The GearShop experience should be at least as good.

Above somewhere, it says it is OK to mention other retailers, so it should be noted that B&H does not charge the 9.8% sales tax collected where I live in Washington State. dpreview, Amazon and GearShop have to charge sales tax. So everything at B&H starts as a "10% off sale"!

B&H has one store in NewYork and, so far, is not required to be tax collectors for the other 49 states. My understanding is that with all of their distribution centers Amazon has to collect sales tax for many, if not all, states.

Amazon does not collect sales tax for 40 of 50 states. In case you're wondering, no tax also for District of Columbia residents either.

Why should I buy my gear from GearShop over other retailers like Amazon, B&H, Adorama, etc.?

Besides competitive prices, can I expect a Rewards program?

On Nikon Coolpix AW110 preview (86 comments in total)

Thank you for the heads up, DPR. Since the AW110 can't float in the water like your photograph suggests, I will take a pass.

On Best DSLRs and ILCs for less than $1000 article (276 comments in total)

The "buy now" button with a direct link to Amazon's website does make this buyer's guide from DPR appear like a subtle advertisement for the parent company. Only mildly less subtle than the paid advertisements that appear on the right side of the webpage IMO.

I cannot take this list of recommended cameras for children seriously due to the glaring omission of a must-have for every budding shutterbug.....the Lego camera!

On Samsung Galaxy Camera Hands-on Preview preview (188 comments in total)

Thank you to Shawn and Lars for their initial impressions on this interesting product.

I am uncertain if the Galaxy NX will gain sufficient traction among serious photographers, however I am grateful to Samsung for pushing the other camera manufacturers out of their comfort zone and years of stagnant innovation.

You can bet that Nikon and Canon executives will be following this product closely.

At first, I hated the changes. But I was able to change the color scheme back to the classic version.

Now the Forum Updates are "Recommended (just)".

In reply to:

rb59020: No thanks, Samsung blew it! Should have been at least APSC, full frame would have been better! The 10X zoom is ok, but should have been a constant f1.4. I hate it when the aperture changes when I zoom! And what's with the crappy 4fps? The D4 does 10fps! What was Samsung thinking?

Your *sarcasm* seems to have been lost by some forum members.

I like the clean look of the camera, but wish Leica could have included a built-in OVF and faster lens.

This interview with Adobe officials does not reassure me at all. I will keep my CS6, thank you very much.

Adobe has just lost a legion of professional photographers and hobbyists alike.

Thank you, DPR. Let's see how much negative publicity will force Nikon to change their tight-lipped ways. Even Apple have openly acknowledged issues with their products recently. Why can't Nikon?

Keep the reviews coming. There's no such thing as too many.
