New at Imaging Resource: Q&A feature brings you fast answers to your camera questions

Imaging Resource's logo.We get tons of questions from our readers every day about the cameras we test and review at IR. Unfortunately, there's no way we can answer every single one of them.

That's why we're happy to announce a new feature on IR that gets you answers from a larger group of experts: people who actually use the cameras you're interested in every day -- actual owners.

We've partnered with Adorama and startup TurnTo to pilot a syndicated Q&A system that taps into the expertise of enthusiasts like yourself. Have a question about a specific camera feature? Need help deciding between two well-reviewed models? Simply click on the Q&A tab at the top of a camera review and type in your question, and it'll be sent out to dozens of actual owners. When someone responds (and someone will, because we photographers love to help each other out), the answer will appear not only on our site, but also in your inbox.

For now, we've set up orange Q&A tabs on a handful of the most popular cameras as a beta test of the feature. We'll roll out the feature on more cameras over the next couple of weeks after the initial beta period. Over time, the Q&A feature will draw on the experience of customers of other top camera retailers as well.

Our goal is nothing less than to make Imaging Resource your No. 1 destination for digital photography reviews, news and insights. This latest feature is just one of many we plan to unveil in the coming months as we move in that direction.
