On article Hands-on with Ricoh's compact Pentax KP (638 comments in total)

Like:
Size /weight
5 Axis image stabilization

Can live with:
New grip

Very disappointed with:
No top panel LCD
Only one SD card slot(?)
No apparent improvements to AF system compared to K3ii
Ridiculously small flash
D109 battery
Did I mention the lack of a top panel LCD?

Don't need:
All those dials with so many customisable user settings
ISO 819,200

I'd like to replace my slightly aging K5 but I can't see me buying a KP

On article Waterfails: We test Pentax K-1's Pixel Shift (225 comments in total)

It's a long time since an article on DPR received so much as much (fully deserved) criticism as this one.

Come on DPR - admit your mistake and withdraw this article or replace it with one that makes an assessment using software that actually supports the pixel shift feature.

On article Keeping the faith: Pentax K-1 video overview (102 comments in total)

Oh, you mean it's a video containing an overview of the K1. I thought it was going to be an overview of the K1's video capabilities. Misleading title!

National Media Museum - where? There is reference to the RPS and so I'm assuming it's somewhere here in the UK but it's not clear from the article. Also, when will be exhibited?

On article Adobe expands Photoshop and Lightroom offer (628 comments in total)

"Through December 2, 2013...." ? What ghastly grammer!

Come on DPReview, you can do better than that - either "Until 2nd December.." or "Up to and including 2nd December..."

On article Buyers' Guide: Compact Digital Cameras (23 comments in total)

What an absolutely pointless buying guide - what you've written is good but where is the rest of it? I was pleased when I first saw this new guide because I'm interested in a new compact camera to supplement my DSLR but it's pointless if you don't go on to identify the best two or three models in each category

On article Dan Chung asks Canon about EOS-1D C at 4K launch (86 comments in total)

OK, so I've managed to glean that '4K' apparently refers to 4096 x 2160 pixel video capture - but I've no idea why that matters, what difference it makes or whether I should be bothered.

Come on dpreview, explain the basics to us mere mortals who have only ever used dSLR's for stills photography. All I understand at the moment is that this camera shoots video and costs a lot of money - it's irrelevant to me on both counts but I'm still interested in understanding why it's supposedly so special.

Ok, at the risk of sounding stupid......what's an avatar and who was Gravatar?

On article Site updates: Gear List, forum articles and more (25 comments in total)

The new features are fine but what I REALLY want from DPR are more (and quicker) camera reviews! Please concentrate on the basics. We seem to be getting lots of 'previews' but these are of no more than interest value - it's the in depth reviews that make this site stand out.

On photo A Bear Being A Bear in the Bears challenge (1 comment in total)

I think this is a great shot. Wonderful comic pose. I think this bear definitely has something of the 'Paddington' about him/her.
