Well, I'm wearing a smile. Yahoo! Internet Life magazine, May 2001 has reviewed various sites dedicated to photography, and we've been given the gold star award as "Best Digital Camera Reviews" site, to quote, "If Dickens had written digicam reviews, they'd probably have looked like these long. But there's good reason for the length: This site posts the Web's most exhaustive hands-on analysis. No feature is too small". Other winners include Ofoto for Best Overall Photo Site / Digital Print and Steves-Digicams for digital camera news.
Here's the full quote:
If Dickens had written digicam reviews, they'd probably have looked like these long. But there's good reason for the length: This site posts the Web's most exhaustive hands-on analysis. No feature is too small; even camera packaging is critiqued. Each review is supplemented with dozens of illustrations, showing you every button, gauge, and menu. There are sample photos, too, so once you see what the camera looks like, you can see how it performs. Charts show you all available file formats and resolutions and tell you how many pictures you can fit on the supplied memory card. You can compare multiple models side by side, read user comments, and even input your requirements (price, resolution, weight) to let the site suggest some picks.
