About me:

I'm in charge of the editorial content of dpreview. I joined dpreview when it was based in London in November 2009, after several years as a print journalist in the UK specialist photographic press. I moved from London to Seattle, USA, a year later and I've been here ever since.

On Cold War camera: 1950s Berlin in color (part 1) article (120 comments in total)
In reply to:

Russell McMahon: @Onlooker - Yes. I'm aware of that.
It would be useful if the other website made some comment on the photo collection's origin. (It may do so and I may have not been able to find the information). I only found the site using an image search (looking for the "Strength through Joy" muraled building. This (DPR) site said they were 'found in a flea market'. Quite possibly true, although the majority of "found in an old camera/album/..." claims turn out to be a gloss over a just as useful reality. Knowing where the claim came from and being able to trace some of these back a little more would be interesting.

Glad you like them :)

I (the editor of this site) found these images at a flea market (in Seattle) and scanned them (using my scanner) and published them (here).

In reply to:

peevee1: "X30 offers faux mechanical exposure mode and exposure compensation dials on its top-plate"

What d you mean by "faux" - they don't work? ;)

You've lost me. What is written is not incorrect. Where's the problem?

Faux because there's no mechanical linkage between dial and shutter / aperture.

In reply to:

Petak: I like it when they make a bold statement and then put the all-forgiving question mark at the end. It's so cheap.

It's a pretty common rhetorical technique.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: Hmm. 4 articles to announce one X30 camera. That's a DPReview record. Is the Fuji mark-up at GearShop that high? ;-)

Hopefully you're joking.

In reply to:

Simon97: This should be titled, "Do We Really Need Four Articles in One Day on the Fuji X30?".

Really DPR, cut it down to a couple articles.

I'm sorry for giving you too much to read.

In reply to:

peevee1: 4 "articles" out of 1 product announcement (not even a test). DPR is getting desperate. :)

So we're doing more content on new cameras, at the point of launch (i.e., at the point of maximum interest), and we're 'getting desperate'...? This is something our readers have been asking us to do for years.

Snikt228: They are wasting time on these phones but don't have a single lens tested on the Sony a7, a7s, Nikon D810 ???

Connect is a separate site, with a separate team. No camera or ILC lens reviews were harmed in the creation of this content.

In reply to:

Thomas Karlmann: This article is kind-of dumb -- all I care about is WHICH cameras this guy is using -- and DPR has chosen to bury this info "Somewhere in the Comments". Go suck an egg DPR -- and let me know when you have some real news to report; until then you can keep pushing Sony, as usual.

You missed the 'Gear in this story' links at the bottom of every page, I'm guessing?

In reply to:

cfh25: On a related topic - what happened to DPR's intention to expand the Galleries to take larger collections and RAW files, albeit at a cost? Surely with Amazon web storage this was a no-brainer - probably more profitable than the Amazon Fire Phone ;<)

Ssssssshhhh...

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

ArcaSwiss: You're cramming this website with more and more useless articles. All the while not bothering to review Canon 1DX. Something smells rotten.

It has been explained, a few times - to put it bluntly, sadly we simply didn't have the resources to review a few high-profile DSLRs over the past couple of years, spanning the period of moving to the USA and hiring / rehiring. Reviewing those cameras in full is enormously time consuming, and we had to make a difficult call and prioritize more popular products / content. I wish it wasn't so!
