If you are in the market for a digital camera, this site will certainly interest you. Select camera models and compare the test photos side by side. Click on any of the photos or subtitles and you dig deeper into more samples using finer tweaks of the cameras' features and settings. Also, this site has numerous articles on image editing, printing, scanning, metering and composition, as well as selecting and breaking in a new camera. (Sadly, the 'pixel' article is way out of date.) Also, there are brief reviews of printers, scanners, and imaging software. (2003-04)
