Week in review (December 16 thru 22, 2007)

It is the time of the week again where we take a look at the week that was here at 1001 Noisy Cameras. Think of this as our "weekly newsletter" of sorts :)

We have just updated our Top 5 posts of the week. As the title suggests, it looks at the five most popular posts of each week here at 1001 Noisy Cameras.

This week had four episodes of the Photography Soup, more specifically on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Wow almost one per day! We did not have one on Saturday and that broke the streak. For the new readers of this blog, "Photography Soup" is a cross between a news round-up and a nano-ezine. It has stories of interest from the world of cameras and photography, mentions of impact reviews, new news when there are news, and more. We are currently spotlighting local camera shops in each installment. The whole list of them can be found in the support your local camera shop initiative page.

On the new news front, we had a round-up of some of the many stories at the Imaging Insider.

We updated our new and exciting DSLR Review Matrix feature with new reviews and cameras listed. This is a work in progress feature that will grow over time. The idea is to put as many cameras and reviews as possible in a single page for quick reference.

Speaking of reviews, there were a couple of impact reviews this week, Phil and Simon combined for the Sony A700 review at dpreview, and one of the dpreview newcomers made a splashing debut with a 20-page review of the Olympus SP-560. Yes, that's the one with the 18x hyperzoom lens.

We also introduced a new "eye-candy" segment titled "Can you resist these digital camera temptations", tempting our readers with some tempting camera temptations.

We also noticed that Nikon is putting giant Nikon D3 posters in some photography magazines, and one of those posters found its way on eBay.

Two new installments of the Charts were posted, one looking at the best sellers at Map Camera in Japan for November 2007, and the other taking a snapshot of the best sellers at Amazon.

We also discussed the results of our 35mm full frame DSLR poll. The poll is still active and can be found in the right sidebar/column of this blog. The question was "Who is the most likely manufacturer to come up with a 35mm full frame DSLR next?"

Last but not least we also made some changes (hopefully improvements) to this blog. If you have any suggestions on this or any other topic, we'd love to hear from you. We are not easily offended :)
