Rewind: The week that was at 1001 Noisy Cameras

It is Sunday again and time to recap the week that was here at 1001 Noisy Cameras!
During the last week we managed to put a brand new Nikon D3, Canon 1Ds Mark III and a Ferrari under each reader's chair :)

Spotlight stories
We launched a new feature this week, the Noisy Newsroom, with feeds of news from the world of digital cameras and photography. This is a combination of feeds and editorially selected stories. This is phase I, expect refinements and additions in the next few weeks. If you have any suggestions or feedback, just let us know.

And another new feature was launched, an evolution of "Discover new sites", fortified with Vitamin Web 2.0. A handful of websites were featured and web2.0'ed. The latter is definitely not a verb :)

We posted news of sample pictures from the Canon Digital Rebel XSi (450D) and Nikon D60 at the two major review sites, but we were careful not to introduce bias. OMG, the XSi RULEZ THE EARTH!

The "Amazon Charts" feature was given two full weeks of breathing room so we would have lots of action between the updates. And we sure did! Although Canon continues to dominate as Amazon seems to be a Canonite's market. We will now try to post new Amazon Charts updates on a weekly basis, so we'll have some movement and excitement. If we do this on a daily basis at this point, the movements will be minor and rare, which makes for a rather boring read :) What do you think?

A recap of some of the recent happenings from the Sigma DP1 world was posted just yesterday! Be sure to also check the comments as one of our readers shares his hands-on experience with the DP1.

We had two editions of our not-so-daily daily round-up post, the Photography Soup, first on Monday and then on Wednesday.

The Markets
We noticed that Japanese models of the Casio EX-F1 had made their way to eBay, with the starting prices at around $1250 for this "mystery" camera. Is Casio is doing this intentionally to generate buzz or they are just not used to making a camera that gets the attention of enthusiasts? :)

We alerted our Pentaxian readers that two of the recently announced Pentax lenses are going on sale in Japan.

For the avid shoppers out there we had some Dell specials, along with a notice of Nikon D3 in-stock at Amazon, and the blue Panasonic TZ5 at 1Call.

Weekly Rewind rewind
You can read all our weekly rewinds in one place, by checking all the posts with the weekly rewind tag. There are about 15 of them at the moment, as they are posted on a time-permitting basis.
