Not many (if any) phones have the headphone jack in the centre, would it not work better using the Micro USB socket?

Which ever you use there's always going to be the problem of portrait vs landscape, one of them is going to make mini tripod mounting awkward.

A lot of phones now have either a smooth glass or plastic back, would a mini suction cup not be a better idea?

AlanJones: IMHO:
There is a sense of entitlement on this website. Please understand they probably have limited personnel to do a massive amount of projects. They probably also have timeframes that they are allowed certain cameras and have to work around that. The point I am making is there are so many things that take place in the background while preparing a review that the reader doesn't see. The wait might be stressful but the completed reviews are always technically always spot on and accurate. I think it's nice that other news fills the gaps between reviews.

@Barney Britton

I've nothing against Jeff helping out, the more reviews the better, after all isn't that why most people come here?

Take my last three cameras, Fuji X-S1, Fuji X10 and Fuji F770. It took you almost a year to review the X10, by which time I no longer owned it and the other two, both big players in their sections of the market have nothing. The X-S1 is the biggest advancement in the bridge camera category for years yet you just can't be bothered to review it despite the fact that it's been on sale for almost a year.

To save yourselves time and money you started putting these cameras in group tests, even that has stopped.

You say dpreview are focused elsewhere, what does that mean? The sole purpose of this site was for reviewing cameras and gear, what's its goal now?

Either change the name from dpreview to something more appropriate or do something about living up to it.

Have you also noticed they've started using reviews from www.dcresource.com these days too.

Think of an old digital camera?

Now do a google search on it? Amazing isn't it, there's a review by dpr.

Now search google for one of last years or this years cameras?

Do you remember the days when they reviewed most of the cameras released?

JustDavid: Guys, sorry, but you really need to work on your priorities. How is this more important then finishing the K-30 and other reviews? It is interesting, but certainly not an A1 priority. You have stuff to catch up with

@ Rab G
And I thought this was DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEW. The majority come here for gear reviews. Now who's looking sad?

On HTC One X Review post (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

PAUL TILL: You can have a shutter button if you install a custom ROM, I use the power button on my Galaxy Note, which by the way is a much better phone/camera than the One X.

Well it's been dropped many times and still is unmarked. Have you broken the screen on yours yet? I had one for two days before the screen cracked falling off the sofa!

Oh and good luck changing the battery at the end of the year.

Very nice, I was browsing the forum and your image came up in the challenges box to the right and I just had to comment.

profus: am i only one to see, that the images viewed in the new forum are not looking that good ( sharp ) as before? try to compare an image from any thread to the same image opened directly in the gallery and you'll see what i am talking about...

since this is a photo forum - it is a huge minus imho :-((

No you're not, if you bothered reading from the beginning you would see it's been mentioned a few times.

Is it too much to ask that you alter it so that when you go to the next page it starts at the top?

RoelHendrickx: MAIL NOTIFICATIONS : DEFAULT NOT LOGICAL

Concerning the new forums.
In my profile, I have email notifications DISABLED (except for private messages°.
Nevertheless, the little box underneath a new forum post, that decides whether or not an e-mail notification will be sent to the user when someone replies to his post, is ticked by default.
However, I really DO NOT WANT my mailbox to be swamped by messages from DPR every time someone replies in a forum.
Sure, I can of course "untick" that box.
Only I don't think I will remember to do that EVERY time I post in a thread (which is often).
I believe that this is something that should not be opt-out, but opt-in.
Or at least the default status of that box should be corresponding with the poster's preferences in his personal profile.
Can you fix it?
Roel

Don't worry about it, it doesn't work, I've left it ticked and not received any notifications.

I believe they might implement that back into the forums further down the line.

Larry Winters: Maybe its just my XP machine and/or the much despised IE, but everytime I hit the "enter" tab to start a new paragraph, the whole IE locks ups.

Come on Larry, get with the times, your operating system is older than the original forums. It never worked 11 years ago, you expect it to work now.

I've just noticed, the new layout is just a rip off of Twitter. Hope they don't start to restrict the number of letters we can type in each message too. :)

PAUL TILL: I've got to say it.

In the 4 years I've been here at dpreview I don't ever remember a newbie complaining that the forum was awkward to navigate, in fact I don't recall ever hearing anyone say it needed overhauling.

Sometimes things just work and in my opinion there was absolutely nothing wrong with the old styles. We had a few glitches after your move across the ocean but other than that it was perfect.

It's like when a car manufacturer spends millions of £'s developing the handling on their car and the owner sticks a set of alloys on it with the wrong offset and wonders why it no longer handles as it should.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Yes but I bet you wouldn't like it if all your books, magazines and newspapers moved to blue/yellow text on black paper.

From day one (4 years ago) I've been viewing in flat view. You've always had the choice.
