Default Beware Sample Pictures

When checking camera reviews at http://www.digitalcamerareview.com/ make sure the ISO series pictures are correct. After confirming that the Pentax X70 ISOs were not as claimed, I checked several other cameras and found they are consistently lower that advertised. I have emailed them with the information, but have not received a reply.

Apparently there was an unintentional mixup. The Pentax X70 review is being changed.

I did a quick check of three other cameras and found additional errors with the ISO being below the stated spec.

It looked like you had quotes around the url for the site causing a problem with formatting, and you also used Black as a text color versus leaving it set to defaults (making the text unreadable since you'd end up with black on black text). If you copied it from somewhere else, you can sometimes see that kind of problem, too.

I fixed your post for you (removed the color tags, removed the quotes you had around the site address you were linking to).

Which reviews were they? Have you notified DCR?
