Hi Gordon,

Thanks for providing some really useful reviews. Naturally I looked at other online reviews before making up my mind but I kept returning to Camera Labs.

Have you thought of including RSS functionality on the site to advertise new reviews? Even better, you could have an RSS feed specific to each sub-forum. If the process was automated you could include, for example, the last 10 forum post headers (headers would have to be mandatory) for the Canon forum and the last 5 review titles for all equipment.

Bob.

Hi Bob, thanks for your message - RSS is certainly something I'd like to implement sooner rather than later, but there's been so many great products to review recently, it's kinda fallen by the wayside a little!

But watch this space!

Gordon

Gordon,

Are you trying for the sympathy vote here? Seriously, keep up the good work with the reviews which, together with the mutual help on the forums, is the main business and strength of the site.

Bob.

I second the call for RSS. There are just too many sites out there to manually track. RSS is the way forward.

Don't need rss!
If I'm interested, I'd rather google, or return to my fav sites (which camera labs is one of them)!
In short: I don't want to be triggered, I'd want to trigger myself...

Why would you want to share with us the fact that you don't want an RSS feed? If Gordon does decide to implement RSS in what way are you inconvenienced?

Thomas, RSS would be a convenience for those of us who want it. Nobody would be forcing you to use it if you don't want to, it isn't compulsary.

Hi Guys, just a quick update: Camera Labs will feature an RSS feed in the near future.
