Great flashback article, Jeff! I kinda recall this from 2003.

Would you folks please not forget to headline the title "Throwback Thursday" so we don't have to hunt for it.

I remember this being the first Oly camera that Phil actually favored over the competition.

On article Looking back: Canon's eye-controlled focus (208 comments in total)

I had the A2E (EOS 5) and I disabled the eye control, same way I don’t choose to use multi-point focus in digital. My eye and my brain have a bond with one point AF that holds true to the best axiom in photography, keep it simple.

BTW, the A2E ergonomically was a sweet camera.

Is this Throwback Thursday? If so then where's the logo saying so?

There's a lead intro mentioning it being TT but all the other articles have the TT masthead to catch the viewer.

jrg: Hello staff at DP!

Go to the main overhead bar of news, reviews, and then hit cameras. You will see a list of different brands. If you click on Minolta you get nothing. If you click on others you get a list of cameras going back to the 90's. what happened to the Minolta camera list? Minolta may be gone but the list is historic and needed reference too. why a blank paGE? Especially in light of this article. What gives?

Cool. Always love your reviews Jeff!

Brownie camera for this old dinosaur. Then a Kodak Instamatic 100 with flash cubes that rotated, four shots to a cube! First SLR was a Canon T-70.

jrg: I still have my 2 E-1's too but haven't charged them in years. However all my 43 lenses, specifically my 50-200, are still in action on my E-M1 via adapter. The 43 System served me ably from 2004 to 2010 and I got a lot of good pics with them. No regrets and many fond memories.

No, just three, the 50-200, 35 macro, and the 14-54.

On article Throwback Thursday: the Olympus C-2100UZ (126 comments in total)

There's an old saying in this still relativity young digital world, and that's "don't ever sell your Uzi 2100." I still have mine and loved it. What a camera. ..! I should dig mine out and slap some AA's in and shoot around. Oh the early 2000s! Takes you back!

On article Throwback Thursday: Olympus E-10 (162 comments in total)

Gosh! Wow! Takes me back, too. I always wanted one but around that time and when the E-20 came out I had already shelled out a lot for the Uzi 2100 and the 5050. I still dreamed however of owning an E-10 or an E-20. Lots of accessories came with it.

Why no similar focal length primes to compare to? Why can't the Panny Leica be in the comparison chart, and how about Olympus' 25mm offering?

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F707 (140 comments in total)

Good pick for a nostalgia spotlight! I had one and took some good pics with it. And it was Sony's first real home run hit with the critics back then too.

What price glory?

A big loss. I'll miss his input and gifts as a writer.

virgil1612: Please keep the old one as an option. I like it much more. I'm sure I'm not the only one. That black background is, for me, DPR's signature. Every other site is white. I love your black site.

Yeah, you nailed it, the black b.g. is DP's signature. It helped to make it what was and made it successful IMO.
