Week in review (November 11 thru 17, 2007)

So what did we have here at 1001 Noisy in the last seven days? Well, it's no secret, it's all posted here in the blog, so let's take a look!

New-product-wise, we had two new fish-eye lenses from Sigma and two new lenses from Tokina. A bit of a surprise to get a new lens announcement this late, especially since Sigma, Foveon and prosumer fans would have rather heard some news about the Sigma DP-1 instead :)

Review-wise, we had our usual wave of reviews, the biggest bang was probably made by the Olympus E3 review at Imaging Resource. E-Photographia had previously posted their hands-on impressions on a pre-production Olympus E3. By the way, the Olympus E3 has started shipping from a number of retailers including Cameta Camera and J&R World on Amazon.

We had another installment of Canon vs Nikon, this time comparing prices of all their current the DSLRs. More on the DSLR price wars, the Sony A700 with the 18-70 DT lens had its first major price cut, being offered at $1333 at Amazon and $1320 at OneCall.

We were only able to post two editions of Photography Soup on Monday, and Tuesday. Photography Soup is a round-up of camera and photo related stories, a soup if you like! Unlike Doctor Who, we are not able to move through time, so we are stuck with 24 hours per day :)

Our Support your Local Camera Shop Initiative has been continually updated through the week, with more than ten local and independent camera shops listed. Be sure to check them out!

On the blogging front, we have invited guest bloggers to guest-blog a post on this noisy blog. If you are interested, be sure to check it out for more information.

We also posted a Noisy Review, reviewing the ads in the December 2007 edition of Popular Photography. As you can see we do not have the resources to review the Nikon D3, D300, Canon 40D, 1Ds Mark III, Sony A700, Olympus E3, Panasonic L10. Check dpreview, dcresource, Imaging Resource, etc for those reviews :)

We also posted the five most popular Noisy blog posts this week, and asked the readers for what they would change on this blog (other than changing the whole blog) :)

We also notified Panasonic fans that their brand is featured in Amazon's upcoming Customers Vote.

And we took a look at the top photography books voted by Unspun voters. This is a web2.0-ish interactive list by Unspun.

And if you have read through all this, you may also want to take a look at our recap of the week of November 4 to 11, 2007.

One last thing, we have added a new convenient and very practical set of bookmarking and RSS subscription buttons provided free of charge by Add to Any. As you can see, these are light on the eyes, but very practical. When you mouse-over them, they open up a list of the most popular bookmarking sites and RSS readers respectively. If you don't find your favorite reader or social bookmarking site in the first list, they have a search option, so you can also search for it. So whenever you see a story you like here at 1001 Noisy, be sure to bookmark it to your favorite social bookmarking sites such as digg,, stumpleupon, reddit, furl, facebook, etc. Also be sure to use the buttons with the RSS logo to subscribe to our RSS feed, which is compatible with both RSS and Atom readers.
