How to Enter

This time around we’re going to reward members who write us a review of their digital camera.

To be in the running you need to head into our Digital Camera area and leave us a review of your camera in the appropriate section (ie if it’s a Canon – leave it in the Canon section).

A few quick guidelines for reviews:

  • Reviews must be at least 250 words long
  • Before submitting a review check to see if someone else has done one for your camera. If they have add yours in the same thread instead of starting a new one. If there’s nothing already – start a new thread
  • Reviews should have the title ‘Camera Brand/Model Number Review’ as the heading of the review
  • Reviews should have a rating out of 10 (10 for ‘perfect’ 1 for ‘terrible’)
  • Reviews don’t need to be technical – simply tell us about the camera’s features that you like and dislike, who the camera would be good for etc
  • Reviews need to be original content and not copy and pasting from other people’s work
  • If you have more than one camera feel free to enter more than once (each review is an ‘entry’). There will be a limit of 3 reviews per forum member.
  • Winners will be randomly selected from all reviews submitted on 1 March.

You’ve got until the end of February to submit your review so head over to the forums – make sure you’re a member and tell us about your camera!

I’m looking forward to seeing your reviews. In leaving them you not only put yourself in the running for a prize but also help the rest of us make decisions about our next digital camera purchase.

NB: the above Amazon links are part of a program that helps raise a little money for DPS if you buy books after clicking on them.

    I have been reading here for a while now and thought it would only be fair to register and contribute instead of being a silent reader. So – I am looking forward to be a full part of the community!

    Take care!

    So I was off work and surfing and found this place and thought I would join up. I don't have much more to say right now except I need to start reading some of the older posts to get up to speed before I can start posting.

    Camera Brand/Model Number Review
    I have owned my Nikon D50, with a Tamron 28 - 200 lens, for close to one year. I rarely do any very large enlargements, and to date I am very pleased with the camera. There is usually need to computer enhance most shots, but not greatly so. It was going to be this or the d70s, and since the oversized enlargement question was solved, and since I could not afford the D200, it was an easy money decision. I had owned the same (film version) lens, but got the digital lens (which is like an old film 18 - 300mm, and I have enjoyed this as much as the other. The manual is (within reason) easy to understand, and answers most questions. An excellent camera shop (Service Photo)is pleasantly able to handle the rest. Using the camera is generally straight forward, and no unpleasant surprises. I have used the camera for more than several thousand pictures (easy when you don't buy and process film) and would definitely remain with Nikon. If you're doing larger than 11x14 enlargements it may be better for a more current, larger megapixel model, but if not doing that, I would most likely continue to make the same choice.
