New visual aids if you want to help support this blog
With the waves and waves of new cameras out there, we often forget to mention the "support this blog with your purchases" beg-a-thon, so to make it easier to help us help you help us, we have added visual aids at the top of the page - buttons that point to some of the critically-acclaimed and popular retailers that we are affiliated with, listed in reverse geographical order. Your purchases through the links help fund this blog. We will fine-tune the list and make adjustments over time. For even more of your favorite retailers, be sure to check The Noisy Mall.
Your support has practical benefits in terms of readability and content - it helps us AVOID the following type of annoying advertisements you see at many other websites, big and small, old and new:
+ full-page ads before you can actually read a page
+ too many banner ads (we typically have 1 or 2 at most)
+ in-text random keyword ads (eg double-underline ads)
+ in-text pop-under ads when you mouse-over a word or phrase
+ sponsors and sponsorship ads
+ pop-up or pop-under ads
+ etc, etc, etc
