Preparing and organizing these digests is a time-consuming and ephemeral affair. If you find them useful, you can help fund them by making some of your purchases through the new pistachio-green Amazon shopping widget in the middle of this post. This utilizes the Amazon affiliate program, so any kind of purchase you make by clicking through the widget (not just the cameras shown; anything including books, camera bags, cat food, software, etc!) helps fund this blog by generating typically a small percentage commission based on sales. We are publishing everything online for free, including free full-text RSS feeds. We count on you to continue doing so! [NEW!]
