Photography Soup (Friday November 2)

We are back with another edition of the Photography Soup. A couple of big features, creating a list of every single current digital camera from the major manufacturers, along with the start of PMA 2008 speculation, and the surprise introduction of Ricoh GRD2 further delayed our (almost) daily round-ups. We started yesterday with a number of interesting stories from The Imaging Insider, and we continue today with The Soup.

    Reading is fundamental
    Although Ansel Adams is no longer with us, we can still find new ways to present and enjoy his work. This is the case with the brand new book, Ansel Adams: 400 Photographs, released on October 29, 2007. We get the full spectrum of his work in a single volume, arranged chronologically and broken down in five periods. This is the 7th Ansel Adams book edited by Andrea G. Stillman. The book is 440 pages long, and sells for around $27 at Amazon.
