Part Two of our look back at the most significant cameras we covered brings us from 2008 to the present (well, almost).
This is the first of a two-part series, looking back at the cameras that got us to where we are today (and a few that we just thought were interesting). This first installment covers the years 1998-2006 and takes us from DPReview's first review to the beginnings of live view.

DPReview's testing has changed throughout the site's history but one of its most enduring features has been a still-life scene, used to compare cameras in a repeatable manner. Richard Butler delved into his memory and the site's early reviews to tell the broadly consistent story of an ever-changing scene.
