This website is called Canon Rumors...So I come here to find out about........rumors relating to Canon.
The owner can make all the $$ he wants to the way website owners do...linking ad content to editorial content. If I don't like it, I can leave. As far as the level and quality of info provided, again, it's not called Canon Facts, How to Buy A Canon, or the Canon Bible. Yet, it's still one of the most entertaining sites around, I find I'm spending more time here than on dprerview.
As far as the level of quality of the photos posted: See line one of this post. I personally learn the "artistic side" by going to specific books, museums or websites to see images published by specific photographers and artists who I have learned to admire. I see a lot of other good photos in my day to day web travels but have zero expectation of seeing them here. That doesn't mean that members of this forum and other forums don't post great shots....it has no bearing on whether I visit it. All I want from this site are......Canon Rumors.
