Some silly criticisms (as usual)

It seems to me that DPReview struggle to stay objective sometimes. The reviewer (or the staff in general) seem to me to form personal opinions and biases and then find it difficult not to have those prejudices seep out into their reviews.

For example, the fact that the front control dial clicks on the Canon S100, makes it useless for video work. Whereas on the RX100, no click means it's great for video.

But DPReview mark it down as a big negative. Which clearly it is not, if you want to use it for video.

It's just one of the many examples (I can cite others if you wish) where the reviewers personal opinions overshadow objective reviewing.
