Photography Soup (Tuesday November 27)

Welcome to another edition of the Photography Soup! In today's installment, we have another featured Noisy Reader, a new Casio color in Japan, the gadget blogs picking up on the Pentax K20D and K200D rumors that we discussed a few days ago, and lots more.

First up, DigitalCamera.jp informs us that Casio Japan is releasing a black version of the EX-V8 camera in Japan. And for those who are learning computer-translated Japanese, "crookedness" means "folded optics" :)

1001 Noisy Readers Spotlight
And now to our featured Reader of the day: Ed Z's F1.0 website, and accompanying blog, and flickr gallery as well.

The 1001 Noisy Readers List is a place where our readers can showcase their websites, blogs, galleries and other content. All readers are welcome to join, whether they are absolute beginners or the domain experts in their field.

  • If you are interested in a new digital camera and want to find out as much about it before buying, and you are frustrated by too many false positives in search engine results, we have a suggestion for you: Check the Imaging Insider Archives. Just search for the camera model name, and you will find a list of related items on the camera.

The latest episode re-runs throughout the week on VH1, with new episodes airing each Sunday. The Shot is an 8-part reality tv series where ten aspiring professional photographers are competing for a grand prize. It looks and feels and smells like reality TV, but with photography as the main subject. With a big dose of drama of course.
  • Adorama continues their 100-part series, with daily photography tips. Today's tip is "Beware of Lens Flare".
