    I posted asking why there was no "pixel density" figure for the new
    50D posted, Dpreview made a big deal of coming up with this as a
    standard figure included in the specifications table. So, now Canon
    releases a 15 megapixel camera, all of a sudden, they don't post the
    figure because (IMO) they have implied that greater density = bad.
    So guess what? The pulled the thread! CANON WHORES! They had NO
    problem using this in Nikon, Olympus, Sony or Pentax spec tables.
    Could they BE any more transparent??

    They list pixel density in their database "features search" and the 50d
    isn't in it yet.
    You've jumped the gun. If you called them "canon whores" in your
    thread, then I'm not surprised that DPReview pulled the thread.

    No, I simply asked why they hadn't mentioned the pixel density.
    No invective, until now.

    Despite knowing what you do about DPreview, you still use them for your
    source of information. Face it Rich... Whores they may be but like most
    whores, they're irresistible to you.

    What I meant to say was: Anyone unhappy with Dpreview get your money

    Why is Dpreview forcing people their reviews on them?

    But I've never made a buying decision based on what they've said, so
    they haven't profited from me in that sense, except as a minor blip in
    the traffic they get to the site.

    They aren't, but just like deriding a supermarket tabloid, you can
    still form an opinion of their actions and voice it. Darn that

    Perhaps your reputation preceded you?
    Anyway, I think you're wrong to suspect that no pixel density stated on
    the hands-on preview specification is out of the ordinary. I'm sure it
    will appear when they've got the camera in their database.
    OTOH, I'm pretty sure that the significance of pixel size / density,
    particularly with DPReview's lack of presenting any serious comparative
    data on overall sensor performance, will lead to the usual raft of
    claims about too many pixels etc.
    I'll start it off if you like - at 100% view, 50d iso400 sample photos
    seem quite noisy and soft (compared to D300, let alone 40d). At a
    standard (large) print size, who knows?

    Because smart people are able to calculate it.
    No they didn't.
    Your opinion really isn't worth anything given your blatant biases.
    In fact, I don't see the number for the Nikon D90 so it's pretty
    obvious that you're just some bigot trolling for attention.

  13. I've never read anything from people using obvious pseudonyms
    trashing some company or product that made them look even
    slightly credible.
