Dpreview, not just whores, but CHEAP whores to boot!
First off, Dpreview gets shafted by Sony, who release the NEX cameras to other sites to review. Then, Dpreview gets hold of the camera, finds out the 16mm f2.8 lens is a DOG (I presume) and tries to hide the fact from their readers by only using sample shots taken at narrow apertures! Then Sony, after other sites... 26 May 2010 13:35

Nikon D3000 a piece of junk?
This lemon really does seem to be the odd man out in the Nikon line- up. The D5000 is far better. Did Nikon have some CCDs left over and had to use them up? Seems like the D40/40x got much better reviews and they came before the D3000. ... 22 May 2010 17:07
SI Facescape comment
The term "Facescape" turned my mind to "landscape," so I thought I'd try to use the face as the basis for an attempt to render 3D space in the image.
