I would like to take a moment to thank a number of camera and product vendors that have responded positively to providing their products to me for review purposes. For those who are interested, product reviews are usually done on request. This means I have had people email me or comment on the blog asking what my thoughts are on product X or Y. In contacting various companies, I have met with some pretty wild success rates. Often, the companies are so generous that they offer to let me keep the product as thanks for taking the time to express the interest. Because I like my review to remain objective, these donations and contributions are carefully repackaged to retain as near mint-condition status as possible and then used for the monthly contest giveaways.
When not given out for reviews, products are always returned to the company when possible. When the nature of the product does not warrant return (i.e. NFR product keys to software), I will make note of that here (but not the keys for obvious reasons). Thank you so much to all the sponsors for their continued generosity and participation with the reviews and giveaways here on the blog.

I would also like to thank the many, MANY, folks that have generously offered donations to the blog to help offset the always increasing cost of bandwidth and other costs associated with running a blog. Your always-appreciated donations help keep me going. If you are interested in making a donation, by all means, feel free to do so. There is a donation button in the sidebar of the blog, or you can donate through the donation button here:
