A textbook example of corporate thinking that leads all great companies to eventually go bankrupt!

black on white, white on black... the underlying graphics problem is all the clutter on the dpReview website, but if I was forced to pick (and I just did), the older black background/white text motif hides this clutter better than white backgound/black text. And I say this remark as a person who generally dislikes reading white test on black background.

Time for a true overhaul of the dpReview website aesthetics, not just a quick fix with little design consideration.

On article Manfrotto launches miniature Lumie LED lights (49 comments in total)

Lux is a value for illumination incident upon a surface. It means absolutely nothing as a product specification in this situation if we don't know what distance that surface is away from the light source. Are we talking six inches away from the light source, 1 foot, one meter, etc. I wouldn't be impressed at six inches. I would be impressed at one meter or more. This is a classic case of a corporate marketing department providing an incomplete specification.

FoveonPureView: They should have also sent another guy off on the tour with a Nokia 808 PureView, which, using the awesome symbian app Camera Pro, would have been able to produce full res 41.48 megapixel jpeg output at jpeg q100%!

Seriously, this was maybe newsworthy at the beginning of the smartphone era a few years ago. But today? Almost everyone understands that smart phones have real camera credentials. We get it. Is this news worthy any longer?
