Gary's Camera and Lens Review Site.

The camera review site allows users to add reviews of both cameras and lenses. New equipment must be first added by the admin.

Future plans include refinements to the ratings and additional views, however the needed basic functionality is present.

Security concerns

While this site was constructed mostly as a test project, reasonable efforts have been taken to provide security. Passwords are not stored directly, but instead a salted hash is used. If SSL is not enabled (check browser above), then logins are vulnerable to attack. As of this writing, no tracking cookies or ad networks are used. (If you see ads, no doubt they will track you, including with cookies.) Cookies may be used to allow faster site re-entry or other internal use.

Technical notes

This web site was developed using the Microsoft MVC framework, along with the Unity and Entity frameworks. Ajax controls are used when paging through lists of reviews, to improve the responsiveness.
