Camediadude: Dpreview, take a look at how gizmodo covered this press release, and learn a thing or two from them. http://gizmodo.com/5994043/blackmagic-pocket-cinema-camera-raw-video-in-the-palm-of-your-hand-for-1000
Notice the photos they included, versus the single one you put up. Their blurb actually seems to have a pulse, as opposed to the clinical description you offer at the top, which may as well have been written by a machine. Then there is a link included for the official press release, so that we can just go and read the sea of marketing speak over there if we wish, as opposed to having to scroll down through it here only to find that you included no other pictures.
You included a list of highlights, which is nice. However, Engadget has a whole hands-on posted in the meantime. Perhaps you could step it up? I'm trying to help here.
Second motion that!DPReview seems to be getting less and less rightas months go by. Hence, I find myself visiting thesite less and less, which is a shame. Please focuson great reviews like you used to do before...
larrytusaz: The idea of having tools for sharing my d-SLR or mirrorless captured images quickly online in the field is appealing. Using a phone to take a photo? Sorry, I know they say "the tool doesn't matter," but I thnk it sort of DOES matter. You get to this level of being an enthusiast or professional, you use tools to match that. Phones just aren't that, I don't care what awards photos taken with them have won. As CAPTURING tools, they just don't rate. As SHARING tools, well that's fine. Anything that let me take images I've captured with my d-SLR or mirrorless & share before getting home & offloading to the PC, I'm all for.
I find it quite ironic that the previous news story in DPReview is specifically related to the 'Depth of field in Macro Photography'!
It is not a matter then of a new attitude towards technology and photography. Clearly DPReview is trying to become a 'Jack of all trades' photographic site and that is why devoted readers are slightly concerned.
