Photography Soup Special Edition (No CES, No PMA, No Rumors)

The last few days we went to wall to wall coverage of new CES, PMA, new cameras, rumors and speculation. For our readers who are not particularly interested in all that, we have a special edition of the Photography Soup that does not include CES, rumors, gadgets, PMA or speculation!

Farewell Herbert "Burt" Keppler
One of the most recognizable names in the world of photography, Herbert Keppler passed away a couple of days ago. A number of websites and blogs said farewell.

Support your local camera shop
We continue the support your local camera shop initiative by spotlighting more stores from the list. Since we haven't posted many photography soup episodes recently, we'll spotlight a few local stores together today, starting with Kerrisdale Cameras, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, which was submitted by a blog reader. If you are in Phoenix, Arizona, look up Foto Forum Camera and Video. And if you are in Pennsylvania near Altoona, look up The Film and Digital Center.
