I agree... this "new light" colour scheme is much better than the previous one. Much softer and compliments the photos better IMHO. Thanks again!

Default Theme

Well I suppose you can get used to anything in time but I really liked the old darker theme. It seems you've got a lot more advertising space now which I believe may have been the engine driving the change. DCResource recently made similar changes to gain more advertising room. In any event, as others have said it's the content that's important. This will grow on me in time but as for right now I'm not all that thrilled about it.

Default I Miss the VR Quicktime!!

Your 360 degree views were very useful and it does not appear that the newest models include them. Will we not see them anymore?

[QUOTE=IB-Dick;990872]This is because the new site uses a lot of javascript. IE6's javascript engine is terrible and can not handle the contents of this page. There are also a number of other features of the site that IE6 will not support, for example, transparent PNGs.

Just noticed this, and had to comment that I still use IE6. because it is the last version that works fully with the acceleration software I have to use (slooooow dial-up). Don't have any trouble with the site, either main page or forums.

Default Reveiw Format - minor suggestion

I was reading the recent review of the Sony DSLR A330. As I finished reading each of the "pages" or "tabs" of the review, I could not find a way to go to the next page (or tab) without having to scroll to the top of the web page and then clicking on the appropriate tab on the left.

Suggestion: add a "Next Page" button at the bottom of each page to make it a bit easier to move to the next topic in the review.

Thanks.

No, we opted not to do these any more due to the amount of time it takes our reviews to make the 360 tours. That, coupled with low traffic reports to those pages, helped us come to the conclusion that the 360 tours were no longer worth the effort. Back when Steve started them (he was the first BTW, in the digicam world to make them), they were very popular.

Totally agree, it might grow on me in time, i honestly thought i had logged on to the wrong site it was THAT different.
I find what i'm looking for much harder to find now

Default Not working for me

This is the first time since my post on the 11th that I've been able to access the site. Until now the screen freezes on loading, and I have to use ctrl/alt/delete to exit. Hopefully, admin has been doing some fine tuning. I do have dial up, but this hasn't been a problem with any site other than eBay. Dpreview works fine for me.
