This is my work. My family is my life.
Back in the mid-2000s, there was no such thing as a point-and-shoot camera that performed well at high sensitivities. That is, until the Fujifilm F10 Zoom came along. In today's Throwback Thursday, we reminisce about that near-legendary compact. Read more

You may have already noticed that following a few weeks of tweaking and bug squashing we’ve extended the new ‘light’ theme to the forums and deployed a new unified header that is shared between both dark and light versions of the site. The beta pop-up has been banished from the site and a new permanent ‘Reading Mode’ switch placed at the top right corner of the site. Find out more and share your thoughts after the click.
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!
The entire team at DPReview would like to wish all our readers Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings, Merry Christmas or whatever you say in your part of the world. We've had another busy year, and have some exciting plans for 2016, including our bi-annual visit to the camera and wurst-fest that is Photokina. Wherever you are, and whatever you're doing today, enjoy yourselves and thank you for being a part of dpreview.com!
