We're looking for two software development engineers, freelance writers and a marketing expert to join our team in Seattle, WA and help build the next generation of dpreview's content and community tools (and of course, get to play with all the latest photo gear).

We've been working behind the scenes for the last few weeks on one of the most-requested changes to DPReview.com - the option to switch to a lighter color scheme with white background. Today we're pleased to be able to launch the first phase of this project as a public beta. It doesn't yet include every page on the site (we've concentrated on the text-heavy articles, news, homepage and reviews sections), but we will continue to work until we have as near to 100% coverage as possible. Please try it out and let us know what you think!
