Noisy Round-up: Sigma DP1 samples, new reviews, and more

Without any intros, we jump right in! We added the new Sony W300, Cybershot H50, and Panasonic FX500 to the New Digital Cameras of 2008 list.

Sigma Japan has unleashed official DP1 samples. We cover the reactions to the 37 sample pictures.

UPDATE! AminFoto has uncovered a new hands-on first impression on the Sigma DP1! Check it out!

Meanwhile, gadget blog Crunch Gear has a video hands-on with the H50, Sony's brand new 15X superzoom.

You may have noticed that the top of the middle column has switched from the "Bargain Hunters Corner" to the "Noisy Headlines", where we will spotlight the latest impact stories of interest in our noisy opinion. You can also subscribe to our RSS feed. We are currently syndicating a summary-feed because of sploggers and such, but we are considering switching to a full-text feed. We will eventually go to a full-text feed, but we don't have a time frame at this point.

But we don't want to disappoint our bargain hunting readers! We will start a new regular "Noisy Shoppers" column, and will create a special feed that includes just those posts. Of course those posts will also be included in our main feed. Details on that in the next couple of days.

Continuing with the "Silliness Week" theme, we posted Political Slogans for Photography companies, and The Noisy Situation Room.

Oops, we forgot! We launched the third Review Matrix, the Super Zoom Review Matrix. We will be posting reviews and previews of some of the most popular and/or critically acclaimed superzoom digital cameras, starting with the latest models and then moving back in time. We will be posting one new model per day. Today's addition was the Panasonic FZ50. And while we are on it, we are surprised at how little is out there on the Casio EX-F1 after the official announcement. Come on Casio, give us something :-)

Coffee Talk Radio
And for coffee drinkers, this is your chance to break free from the Starbucks chains and (re)discover your local coffee shop or Peet's Coffee. Why? Starbucks will be closed for almost four hours today for employee re-training!

On a totally unrelated note, this blog will be closed between 5:30pm to 5:31pm for blogger retraining :)

The Lenovo X300 super-thin laptop is out!
From the world of high-tech and gadgets, the ultrathin 0.75" Lenovo X300 notebook is officially out and about on the net.
