Although it would be bonkers to judge the merits of a camera on the uploads of random photographers of varying technique etc, it is sometimes mildly instructive to see what type of photos have been taken with particular devices.

I'm sure there used to be a way of doing this on here but it does not jump out at me.

Any ideas?

Currently there isn't a gallery filter to limit to a certain camera.

However there's a couple of ways of seeing photos from a specific camera, if it's in the Equipment Database and the EXIF record approved, then the model will be hyperlinked on an individual photo to the data and photos on the Equipment Database.

If the camera has been reviewed, all the photos taken using that model by the reviewer are available, also at the bottom of the full ePHOTOzine review (on popular models) there's a mini gallery of photos taken by ePHOTOzine users.

There's plans in the pipeline to make improvements, one being to add a camera model tag to all photos, where you'd just click that to see a gallery of photos taken using that model.

I remember seeing on reviews here st the bottom, or the end as it used to be a section of "photos (produced by site members) shot with this model'...

Strangely enough there was no such feature for my Lumix DMC-FZ45 although it was reviewed. I am not so surprised for my Kodak, Minolta, Nikon, Seagull, Zenit or Centon film cameras I have used.

I don't think it is a bad idea although the pictures may be shot with other than the kit lens and most likely will not be shown here as in "straight from the camera". So, could one tell?

Quote:"straight from the camera".
That could be interesting experiment / project.

But if I judged my photos by that they would all go in the trash can Sad

I think it's more the type of photo than trying to judge the quality.

For example, if a lot of the photos are in a certain category - say portraits - one might be drawn towards a conclusion that the camera (+lens) might be of interest for that type of photography.

It's just a nice add-on for the site and could conceivably have some business merit for EPZ as well as adding interest for site users.
