Seems 70% of the deal listings are for compact DCs. For anyone not buying a DC, e.g. a DSLR user they are not useful information. Would you consider creating a dedicated listing just for the DCs? Of course common accessories like storage can be cross-posted, too.

Thanks for the feedback! Part of what decides the listings is what the market offers. With DSLR prices going up the last few weeks, it was hard to find a DSLR "deal". But there have been some small DSLR discounts the last couple of days.

As far as having separate listings, that was something I was thinking about from the start, but it would add overhead, and overhead would mean fewer postings.

But once I convert this blog to an "advanced template" (after PMA 2009), there will be more flexibility, for example, I could create a separate RSS feed that only lists the DSLR/SLR specials. I could also take that feed and auto-post it on a static page for those who don't use feeds and are only interested in DSLRs/SLRs.
