Photography News

Here I am sharing photography news that I hope my site visitors will find useful or interesting. It could be information about some product discount, technical background information or me proudly sharing my personal achievements. I am not trying to compete with the many photography information sites out there like dpreview, PetaPixel or rumor sites like Nikon Rumors.

The information shared here is usually taken from other sources, with no or just a few personal remarks added. It is supposed to be relevant to a typical workflow of an enthusiast amateur photographer like I consider myself to be.
