Look for the BlogRush widget in the middle of the right column of this noisy blog for a variety of stories of camera and photo interest.
  • Lots of E3 coverage at the Imaging Insider.
  • The Olympus E3 is available for pre-ordering at It appears to be "currently unavailable" at Amazon.

    Around the Internets
  • Scott Kelby is in NYC for the PhotoPlus Expo. Scott reports from the Kelby Training Booth. Scott was recently interviewed by Inside Digital Photo about his new book The Photoshop 7-point system.
  • What is Inside Digital Photo you ask? They are a variety of radio and television programs geared towards digital photography enthusiasts and professionals.

  • Another interesting blog we found via BlogRush was The Right Pic blog, a blog for the stock photography site with the same name.

    Speculation Segment
    There was some Google Search buzz on Panasonic LX3 leaks, but I haven't seen anything new mentioned. We are fast-approaching November, and it is very rare to get new cameras after the end of October. Although we did have a couple of November surprises the last couple of years, so one can never really know. Perhaps the early arrival of PMA 2008 (late Jan/early Feb 2008) may alter some of the manufacturers plans and announcement cycles?

    Reading is fun-da-mental!
    Today we have three books of interest for digital photography readers:
  • Mastering Digital Photography by David Busch and Mastering Digital SLR Photography also by David Busch.
  • Understanding digital cameras by Jon Terrant

  • All apologies for the technical issues Blogger was having with the Reader Polls. It appears that now it has been sorted out. Thanks for your patience. The poll battle for #2 is between the Nikon D300 and the Olympus E3. One week after the E3 announcement we will be having something fun: DSLR Playoffs :) Stay tuned!
