Photography Soup (Thursday November 29)

In today's edition we discover the Nikon D300 with the 18-135 DX lens is currently available from Amazon, a more affordable way to read this blog on the new Amazon Kindle, we feature the next Noisy Reader, and take a look around the PhotoBlogoSphere.

1001 Noisy Reader Spotlight
Today's featured reader blog is Digital Mundane. Be sure to check out their photo blog, with more than 100 images posted. They have some very nice pictures from around the world.

The reader blogs and galleries are featured in this spotlight segment on a first come first served basis. To see all our featured readers or if you want to be added to the rotation, be sure to check the 1001 Noisy Readers List.

The Nikon D300 Big Bang
The Nikon D300 with the 18-135 DX lens is available on Amazon right now for $2100. It is currently the biggest mover in the Amazon Camera and Photo segment. As always, prices and availability can change at any time, especially for a hot product like the D300.

Read this blog on Amazon's Kindle for less!
The good people at Feedblitz inform Amazon Kindle readers that it would cost them a lot less to receive their blog subscriptions by email using the Feedblitz consolidated daily summary service, than using individual blog feeds. More details from Feedblitz. Feedblitz is an email subscription service.

For those not familiar with Amazon's Kindle: We do not charge for our blog feed, nor does Feedblitz. However, Amazon charges Kindle subscribers for blog subscriptions and email updates. Emails cost 10c per, while blog subscriptions cost 99c per, so the idea from Feedblitz is that you pay 10c per day and get all your feeds in one email, instead of paying 99c per blog feed. Of course this is for blogs you are okay with getting one update per day, instead of getting updates after they are posted.

A lot of people prefer RSS subscriptions, and we have RSS subscription buttons all over this blog, look for the identifying orange syndication button like this one:  Subscribe to the 1001 Noisy Cameras RSS/Atom feed delivers a newsletter and blog has introduced a new monthly newsletter, starting with the October 2007 edition and they have also introduced a news and updates blog. If you are not familiar with, be sure to visit the site as they have a lot of practical, useful and technical information. Such as the Nikon AF-S DX 12-24 lens review.
