Aside from Consumer Reports, does anyone know of a good web site or
newsgroup for reviews of currently available digital cameras in the US?

Most are going to be relatively dated to model advancements at sales
incentives . . . chances for latest and greatest improvements being an
alpha-numeric addition above a current model found on sale. Identify
the main players and focus on one of two things they do -- either
variances into pro-level SLR or the point-and-shoot model below.
There's only a few majors at that level, keeping it in the bigger
means of simplification -- Nikon and Canon, then Olympus, and not to
ignore Fuji (though mainly at the p-&-shoot level I'd guess). Narrows
considerably, either overridding pro press quality of the first in
SLRs starting say at $2000USD, or save some by way of Olympus.
They're all have bread-&-butter pocket cameras subtly closer grouped
in pricing. Find these respective model numbers, all 4 (from either
pro or not), and, what -- you've got just a few cameras everybody's
nephew is reviewing on their website, correctively now inclusive of
Britain. At which point the available good becomes less respective of
currency, but more in line with a subjectivity you place in Google's
advanced settings, at a return up to potentially one-hundred reviews
per page for any single model.

Or, do it the way I did. Got a point and shoot Canon, named something
I found on Amazon with the most positive reviews for a fair price I
did not steal. Then I looked around for its flaws, which there are in
measurable standards of course. Objectively, I shouldn't have a
problem with that particular brand when I do subject myself. Haven't
yet taken it out of the box much since getting it, see.

I usually go to dpreview.com or www.steves-digicams.com/
Both are as objective as any sites I've seen.

Forgot to add, by the time Consumer Reports get published, the reviews
in their magazines are several months out of date. Newer models may have
replaced those they've reviewed.

www.dpreview.com and www.steves-digicams.com would be the first two I'd
use.

all who have posted.
