First impressions:
A search for "Time Lapse" vs "Iimelapse" gives different results.
Also, these searches give me in excess of 16000 results which is not very useful and I don't see anyway of further filtering the results.
I do not know the search engine you are using, but this is the main flaw with full text search engines against large databases like DPreview - you get HUGE numbers of results and no way of filtering.

I've seen results from a search engine called Exalead, which built a keyword summary "on the fly" from the initial search results. In other words, it reported that in the result, "X" items contained the keyword YYYYYY and "Z" results contained the keyword BBBBBB. Each of these keywords was a link allowing you to drill down deeper and deeper. Pretty cool way of finding stuff.

The new beta may be able to find lots of items quickly and perhaps even more accurately, but if a search returns tens of thousands of hits, it's not very useful.
