Digital Camera Carnival!
WELL, HERE IT IS: There are lots of entries in the digital camera carnival. (You can read my earlier posts here and here.) Also, here's an earlier post of mine on printers, and one on slide-scanning for those with big collections they'd like to digitize. My HP wireless printer, by the way, is also a scanner and comes with a negative carrier, though it won't scan mounted slides. I haven't tried it out in that application yet, though. But lots of people around the blogosphere have experience I lack in all sorts of areas.
For those who sent email, but no blog links, I'll try to do something with those later, but a blog carnival consists of links to blog posts, so if there wasn't a link to a blog post, I didn't include it. Here's the roundup:
Brian Leon writes on the joys of normal lenses.
Bill Hobbs, on the other hand, takes a non-normal approach.
Nathan Brindle likes his Nikon D70 and passes on some things he's learned.
Mattazuma's Revenge likes the Panasonic Lumix and explains why. My brother has one, and it's great -- except that the smooth finish is so smooth that it's easy to drop. Use the lanyard.
Paul's Perspective wants to put together a massive spreadsheet-comparison of digital camera features and prices, and wants help.
The Planning Blog likes the Canon Ixus 50, and has some sample photos.
