  • The chatter on the Canon 40D picks up again. Various threads in the Canon 30D/20D forum. My speculation on Canon here at Fauxtokina 2007

  • As the title implies, this is a soup of photography related topics, along with dpreview forum discussions you may find interesting.

  • Mike Johnston, of the online photographer blog and column, talks about a new up-and-coming auction site dedicated to photography items. Its name, CameraGAS, GAS being Gear Acquisition Syndrome (or insert your favorite TLA explanation)
