    Agreed. I worked in the Consumer Products Evaluation industry and some
    of the reviews make me cringe. For comparisons you MUST have consistent
    conditions. They might get away with outside shots in California or
    Nevada, with pretty regular weather, but even that might require waiting
    a day or three for cloud cover, sun angle, etc to return to their
    designated baseline. It probably wouldn't be worth it for anyone running
    a web site.

    Even interiors could be tricky to do consistently, unless they were
    always shot at night with wholly artificial lighting. About the only
    thing they can really get consistently are the still-life arrays. I
    would like to see a page of fine-print text included amount the Mickey
    Mice.
