Week in review, and what's coming up

As usual we start with the week that was, in chronological order.

  • A recap of the previous week (October 14-20, 2007).
  • Then we "discover" the new Samsung S73 digital camera in a retail chain store and in the Sunday paper advertisements.
  • Our weekly Sunday faux-editorial wonders whether Canon is Invincible.
  • Then we go through the Olympus E3 marketing materials to see how many of their claims are testable.
  • Our almost daily Photography Soup signature feature was posted on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
  • In what could be a new feature, we dug into our records and found the most popular posts of this blog of the last 30 days.
  • We also tipped off the DSLR Playoffs, with the top four DSLRs of our "Most Exciting Future DSLR Poll" (left column of this blog). The dSLR Playoff polls (you vote, you decide) are located towards the top of the right column of this blog. The battle between the Nikon D300 and the Olympus E3 is very close, and it may be decided the last few minutes!
  • Our Blast from the Past feature looked at a snapshot of the top selling DSLRs at Amazon about 13 months ago.
  • We also updated the Photography TV Listings for October. The November listings will be posted later this week.
  • We also had some late night excitement as Sony introduced the Cybershot T2 whose unique feature is that it has 4gb of on-board memory in addition to the usual MemoryStick Pro Duo slot.
  • Dpreview posts two impact reviews this week, the Canon 40D and the Canon G9. The 40D was also reviewed by Imaging Resource and DC Resource this week.
  • Then we started our on-going PMA 2008 Speculations post. This will be continually updated and grow longer and longer. See how long our Fauxtokina 2007 ocverage got.
  • Last but not least we introduced a feature to thank and spotlight our readers. Called 1001 Noisy Readers, it allows the readers to promote themselves or their blogs, galleries, websites or anything else they want. Details here.
  • That's all we had the week that was. If you don't want to miss any of our updates, be sure to  Subscribe to our feed.

    Calendar of sorts
  • Are we going to get a November surprise? Canon 5D Mark II or 7D?

Hey what about the Sigma DP1? And what about Ricoh? They teased us this week with the introduction of special GRD and GX100 issues in Japan. How about the GRD2 or the GX120?
