We've also spent 6 months enhancing our database so that it not only includes more detailed specifications for all the latest cameras but also gains an entry for virtually every currently available mainstream lens. In turn, this has also allowed us to make our product search function into a much more powerful tool for finding the camera or lens that provides the functions you want.
You'll find the new Camera and Lens search pages (and all the other new goodies) under the Product Database menu at the top of the site. This has been a major development project and, until we iron out all the creases, please consider it to be in beta status, and let us know if you spot any errors or problems.
As the full effects of Friday's combined earthquake and tsunami become apparent, dpreview would like to extend its sympathies to the people of Japan being affected. dpreview works closely with several companies in the affected region and our thoughts are with their employees at this difficult time. However, while it's clear that these events will have an impact on the photographic industry, we feel now is not the time to be speculating on such issues. Instead we would like to draw attention to ways of contributing to relief efforts, via organizations such as the Japanese Red Cross. Click through for a link to donate.
CP+ 2011: Japaneses websites capture the flavor of the show and ferret-out some interesting mockups. Local websites covering the CP+ camera show in Yokohama have been showing some of the prototypes and concept models on display. Dpreview.com isn't attending the show, so we've collected together a few of the more interesting items that haven't been formally shown to the wider world.
