“Looking for a DPReview replacement, this isn't”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Castillo189 on 15/04/2023

I'd come here a while ago, and hoped it was a good resource. Dipped in and out. There are some good bits, but there is also an undercurrent of clique. There's a jokes thread that recycles sexist stuff from the last century.

The film and landscsape areas are good. The Street phots are almost always disappointing, but that doesn't deter posters from posting more and more and chipping in with how good they are.

Equipment advice can be patchy, not a patch on DPReview. The classifieds, which I have to admit I haven't used, look like a good resource, and are well used.

But whatever you do, don't venture into the off topic section, unless you lean to the far right. The moderation favours some fairly vile views - not a place to hang out in.

Pretty much sums it up tbh. The good content comes from users, but as you say, the standard can be pretty low. The overtly right-wing narrative is pretty disturbing.
