kyleandbrittney: You have to be kidding me? Owned by Amazon? This is incredibly disappointing :( I have used you guys for years and never realized that. You have to be one of the best resources for information and my favorite. To be honest I don't know where I stand now. I do not support Amazon as a company, or anything affiliated with them... Really sad about this.

So funny, if you didn't realise then isn't that a complete vindication of our testament that Amazon didn't "ruin" or "alter" the site? So transparent you had no idea. Relax.

Bananas in Paris: So I am wondering how much did DPReview sold for to Amazon? Just to get a rough idea of effort VS gain...

Who knows; I might start a review website for rectal thermometers and hope for the big bucks to come in once I got 20 million people talking about it.

20 million people talking about thermometers? Good luck.

Not working for dpreview anymore, no. Doesn’t mean I don’t visit.

Another allegation which should remain anonymous until proven either way. Also, not sure it’s dpreview worthy???

On article Beyond the table top: 5 mini tripods reviewed (203 comments in total)

Great round-up but you missed out my personal favourite (and often used), the Leica Tabletop tripod, not as flexible certainly but amazingly well built.
