If one doesn't like the reviews on a certain site, one wonders why they continue to read their reviews.

DPReview reviews do have a lot of detailed information and sample images, which makes them useful. I do agree, however, that there is a subtle but obvious bias against Canon, while Nikon apparently can do no wrong.

I think there's more to it than that in this age of consuming online media. Ideally one role we could play is arbiters of content. Currently, however, we're fairly impotent. Although the community does roast the Matt Ballards, Ken Wheelers and Tony Northrups - icons of weirdness and spreaders of falsehoods that they are. The arena in which we call out BS and critique bent (corrupt) reviewers should be our playground.

Was at canon this weekend had a play with a 200D

Very impressed with the build quality and ergonomics, more so than I expected.

Looked an awesome device might try get one for a few weeks to have a spin with.

Reviews are like the news: you're better off with a "biased" newspaper that adheres to publication standards than you are with a newspaper you agree with that does not.

In general DPReview's observations match my own experience, and I find their little app for comparing performance at different ISOs to be very useful.

Agree, they provide a lot of 'standardized' data that you can use to compare with other products and form your own opinion. As to the opinions of DPR staff, there are a few who I almost always agree with and there are some who I usually don't agree with at all; after some time you start to recognize the bias of the writers and can take that into account. Everyone has different priorities and of course the same goes for DPR staff.

I read the review and came away feeling like they made the staff draw straws to determine who reviewed the SL2 because doing it was like being sent to the dentist for a root canal. I don't think it was a bad or good review but one they just wanted off their to-do list.


DPR simply does not review cameras if they don't want to, so I don't think that is the case. There are some very high profile cameras they never bothered to review, such as the Canon 1DX, Nikon D4, and Nikon D4S. Then you will see them review things like the P&S/Smartphone combo that nobody ever bought, and you can see that they just do what they want with no rhyme or reason haha.
