Making Of the DSLR Matrix: A behind the scenes Blogumentary
The results of the recent poll indicate that the majority of our readers voting in the poll are interested in seeing some form of a comprehensive list of DSLR reviews coverage on this blog. The poll is still open for voting, and you can find it in the right sidebar/column of this blog, right above the "Camera Links" heading.
So with their encouragement, I will be launching an experimental DSLR Review Matrix. Its future will depend on how well it does and how well it is received. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated on this!
In the first phase we will use the Canon 40D as the guinea pig. Then it will expand to about one DSLR from each of the major manufacturers, and then the next phase will expand to all the current DSLRs, and then expand to older DSLRs. If all goes well :)
Please ignore minor/major formatting issues at this stage :)
The text was moved below the table, because let's face it, most people are interested in the camera reviews, not reading a "making of" blog post :)
Update 12/14/07: Good news, we are now in Phase II and we will be slowly adding more new/recent DSLR models. Next will be a DSLR from Olympus and Pentax so fans of those cameras don't feel left out :-) After that we will enter Phase IIb where all 2007 DSLRs will be added, and then Phase III where all "currently available" DSLRs will be added. And then Phase IV - perhaps - where older DSLRs are added. Or perhaps create a separate table for those, not sure yet.
