Photography websites

A couple of weeks ago I bought a Canon EOS 400D digital SLR to further my photography and turn it from a casual hobby into something to fill my spare time a bit more (and experience the majesty of God’s creation in the process). Before and after buying it, I found some excellent sites relating to photography, and I thought I’d share a couple of them with you:

Digital Photography Review is a well known site that specialises in very detailed camera reviews, tips, timelines showing when different cameras were released, and a discussion forum. Whenever a person asks a question such as “what camera should I buy?” on most forums that I’m a member of, one of the common sites referred to is this one, and for good reason. For every camera I’ve ever owned or bought as a gift, I’ve come to this site to read about it before I buy, because the reviews are detailed, balanced, and very objective in nature.

I found a link to the site of photographer Ken Rockwell through a blog comment on Engadget this evening, and it is one very impressive personal website. Lots of reviews of cameras, photography tips, and great pictures from Rockwell’s many years of taking pictures. He spends 12-14 hours per day researching and adding to the ste and in my opinion it shows in the quality of his writing. Even though I don’t know the guy and am 99.9999% sure that I’ll never meet him, I’d trust what he says.

What other good camera/photography sites are out there that you know of?
