  • A new poll has been added in the left column where the readers will decide a future blog feature. More details here
  • If you like photography books, this may entice you to buy more!
  • If you missed our 4th review, the October 2007 issue of the Miller/USA edition of Digital Photographer, you can catch it here
  • Also our most exciting DSLR poll is still open, with the Nikon D3 having a slight lead over the Nikon D300 and the mythical Olympus E3. The mythical next Pentax DSLR holds the #4 spot. The poll is located in the left-column of this blog, a couple of page-downs down.

    Around the Internets
  • Photoxels.com reviews the Panasonic FZ18, the $400 18x superzoom that has put price-pressure on other 18x superzooms but also the "traditional" 12x superzooms. The times they are a-ch-ch-ch-changing!
  • Lots of new news at the Imaging Insider, including but not limited to rumors of Google trying their hand at a photographer's market (read to find out), pro-photographer legal news, camera and lenses reviews, photo exhibits and workshops, Photoshop for iPhones (???) and a lot more!
