Magazine Ad-Tracker

In a continuing effort to provide rare, unique, obscure or just plain silly topics, we proudly introduce ad tracker. Ad tracker simply looks at what camera and lens advertisements are printed in photography magazines. This does not cover every ad, only those of digital cameras and lenses. At my discretion I may also include anything else that may be of interest. Not particularly sure why, but I thought it would be a fun thing to do :-) Unless otherwise noted, the ad is to be assumed to be one full page.
