    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.

    Update 12/19/07: Added dpreview's review of the Sony A700

    Update 12/21/07: New wave of reviews added.

    Update 12/24/07: Adding Pentax K10D and Samsung GX10. Reader Question: If you have any feedback on this feature, please let us know! It's still in the early stages so we can make changes/improvements! So don't be shy, let us know, we are not easily offended :)

    Update 12/26/07: Added Sigma SD14 and Fuji S5 Pro

    Update 12/28/07: Added more reviews for the Panasonic L10. The next update will include the Canon 1Ds Mark III and 1D Mark III.

    Update 12/29/07: Added Canon 5D reviews, along with 1D Mark III and 1Ds Mark III (not a whole lot of completed reviews of those). Also added Olympus E400, E410 and E510.

    Update 12/30/07: Added the links to the Imaging Insider. I won't be able to catch every single past, present or future DSLR review, so be sure to check the Imaging Insider for more!

    Update: 1/1/08: Happy New Year! Added eBay as an option. Be sure to do your research if you are buying from an eBay retailer you are not familiar with. Next wave of DSLR reviews to be added in the next: Nikon D200, D80, Canon 30D, 400d (Digital Rebel XTi), Pentax K100D Super, K100D, K110D, Sony A100, Panasonic L1.

    Update: 1/2/08: Added Nikon D200 reviews. Nikon D80 is next!

    Update: 1/3/08: Added new 1D Mark III review and more Sony A700 reviews.

    Update: 1/5/08: Added Nikon D80. Next: Canon 30D and XTi/400D (D-Rebel).

    Update: 1/8/08: Added first hands-on preview of a pre-production Sony Alpha A200!

    Update: 1/17/08: Added Canon 30D reviews!

    Update 1/19/08: Adding recent reviews of some recent DSLRs including D3, D300, A700, A200, L10.

    Update 2/22/08: Added lots of new reviews.

    Update 3/1/08: Added reviews for the newer DSLRs (A350, D3, D60, K20D) and added the Sony A200 to the list.
