Overheard in the dpreview forums

  • Olympus users are anxiously discussing and waiting for the new Olympus E3 (to be announced officially October 16/17). When will it be leaked though? :) And a tidbit on the price range.
  • The European Union has declared war on digital cameras!
  • Still getting traction from yesterday, Chelsea Clinton's picture removal kerfuffle, and Fuji's manufacturing move to China
  • This could get interesting, the jealous pro.
  • Is RAW a gimmick?
  • Hey, let's give Sony some credit with the Alpha A700!
  • What is the concensus on 40D's focusing?
  • Who needs a Canon 1D Mark III? (pictures of deer included)
  • Oh yes, another Ken Rockwell discussion. This one was trigged by his ISO comparisons between Canon and Nikon dSLRs.
  • This lucky forum user got to play with the Nikon D3, which is available for pre-ordering at the price of a used Civic.
  • With the Nikon D3 creating a big wave, some Canon users are looking for personal success stories of Nikon-to-Canon switchers. But one of them laments the switch. Oh brand drama, we could not live without you!
  • Pentax users are discussing noise reduction techniques using Adobe Photoshop CS3.
  • We know how to howl at the moon, but how to photograph it?
  • A message to Olympus doubters!
  • We don't recommend touching the models, but retouching is okay!
  • More users are calling on Fuji to continue producing cameras with the magic 6mp SuperCCD sensors. I will have a special write-up on this in the next few days (time permitting).
  • Fuji F50 SE buyers unite and take-over. Fuji F50SE is a special edition (color finish) of the Fuji F50fd sold exclusively at Best Buy stores, ahead of the competition. Hey Best Buy, would you like to buy the SE version of my blog? It comes with a metallic gunmetal gray background :-)
  • More anxious waiting for the lost in the Bermuda triangle Sigma DP1.
  • Meanwhile a real world comparison between the Sigma SD14 and the Canon 40D is picking up steam! You can get your 40D and SD14 right here!
  • Wanna get caught up in the Nikon D3 madness? This is the whole forum buzzing!
  • Nikon D300 buzz in the whole forum as well.
  • Are manufacturers operating on Image Quality Design Priority? (Yes, we all know they operate on profit-priority)
  • A request for Pentax DSLR firmware updates.
  • And some Pentaxian waterfalls.
  • Another face-off, this one 40D vs K10D.
  • Leica does Oktoberfest. (beer not included)
  • Imaging Resource has updated their A700 page, and the discussions have been updated as well.
  • The Canon A650IS discussion is hot! The camera is nicely spec'ed and priced, but it also has some issues. Then again, show me a camera that doesn't!
  • This user informs us that the G9 has dropped in price at Amazon down to $469. I inform you that you can get it right here :)
