ezShop launch

Discussion in 'Photo.net Site Help' started by services_photonet, Sep 5, 2001.

  1. The goal of the system is to create a resource that allows you to compare and shop for photography equipment enhanced by the opinions of other photo.net members and some comfort with regard to the vendors directly listed on the system. The user interface has been designed to be similar to the way magazines look with regard to making it easy to configure a system. So Canon for example show all the products in a particular type of canon SLR system. Go to the general SLR system page for other SLR systems. We will be highlighting community member reviews and we are linking in all the photo.net content in relevant to a product. Shortly we will be adding film and filters into the mix.
    Features that we are going to be putting in soon will be to allow you to search through the photo database for photos shot with particular equipment. Right now we are listing adorama prices and hope to add more as relationships are created. Our intention is to work with highly reliable retailers. The dealtime link serves to provide more price comparison when you are shopping. The caveats about the particular vendors from the user recommendations section are easily accessible next to that link.
    Please provide us with feedback about the system and more importantly if you find blank areas of the system please help populate it for the benefit of others with your opinions
     
  2. Great! I always thought pnet should do something like this. Photographyreview.com is OK but anybody can post anything there but here, you can see a person's other posts and get a sense if they are reputable or just a troll. Now if only they could create a better more condensed layout for member pages here(no seperate community member page, etc...) and a easier to navigate architecture.
     
  3. I just looked at the Canon page and think it will be great! In the furure it would be nice to see printers and scanners added.
     
  4. Very Cool!

    The listing of all of a vendor's product links on one page makes for quick navigation. Something that's missing at the dealer websites. Hopefully, other dealers, beyond Adorama, can/will participate.
     
  5. I would like to suggest that the page for each listed item also include a link that will take you to a Search page for the item in question.

    This would make it easier to take advantage of the many discussions in the forums, especially in light of the fact that there seem to be very few reviews up at this time. Additionally, there may be really useful information in the archives regarding a piece of equipment that may not necessarily qualify as a "review."
     
  6. ezShop is awesome. The layout is great. I hope to see more reviews. I didn't see the Tokina brand under 35mm SLR though. I know they only make lenses but their high end is a good alternative to Sigma and generally half the price of Nikon and Canon. I'd like to see Tokina added to the list. Other then that it looks great. Thanks for adding this great section to an already awesome site.

    I agree that scanners and printers would make a good addition.
     
  7. Suffice to say that from now on, whenever I plan on buying a new piece of equipment, the VERY FIRST place I will look will be ezShop.
    And whenever a friend asks for advice on buying some equipment. I'll refer him there!
