If you weren't already aware, June 29th is Camera Day, and we love pictures. While there are a ton of incredible photography blogs, we decided to take a bit of a different spin and look at the top 10 blogs for aspiring photographers. These blogs are a mix of "how-to" guides and equipment reviews to help you figure out where to start.
1. Pop Photo The popular photography magazine site. This well organized site is the digital home of the popular photography magazine. The blog has a deep range of practical guides and instruction, along with an extensive buying guide which covers cameras and film to software and accessories. If you're a budding photographer, you won't want to miss out on this.
2. Ken Rockwell Want no-nonsense camera equipment advice on a site that's not fluffed up by fancy design and navigation? We've found the site for you! Based on his own experience, Ken provides his own personal advice, which he breaks down into categories by camera type and recommended use. If you're worried about staying within a specific budget, there is also a guide based on price range, which can be quite helpful. Well-established and chock full of great information, you'll be taking better pictures in no time after seeing his detailed guides to improving technique.
3. SimplyNess I was originally struck by the clean layout and design of this site, Ness mixes in reviews on gear with striking images on a bright, easy to read canvas. This blog does a great job of highlighting sample photos that can be produced with the various cameras and equipment that are reviewed.
4. Photography Blog The name says it all for numero quattro. If you need to buy gear, this is a great place to start. The blog provides a super helpful buying guide and gear reviews. Additionally, it has a bunch of useful tips and tricks along with contributed guest content.
5. Camera Dojo Looking for alternate ways to school yourself on photography basics than simply reading a book? Camera Dojo will help you "Get your black belt in photography". What makes it stand out from the rest? Podcasts! It's also good for staying up to date on news and reviews in the photo world, and has a lengthy section of Photoshop tips and tutorials.

Whether you're a techno-geek or a Luddite, eventually you end up with electronic waste. Those old computers, cell phones, and other gadgets that go unused and obsolete. What do you do with them? It may depend on where you live.

Let's face it: size doesn't matter. There, I said it! It used to be the
bigger the machine, the more powerful, but in our contemporary society,
the smaller the device and the more portable, the better. Power doesn't
necessarily have to suffer just because the gadget is tiny.
The folks at GeekStuff4U.com have taken this motto of smaller is better to heart for their new Chobi Cam One HD, quite possibly the world's smallest DSLR camera and a pretty close replica of a normal sized Canon DSLR.

Kodak may have stumbled a bit while transitioning from its historic film roots to the modern digital world, but lately the company has created some killer products. For example, the Pulse digital photo frame remains one of my favorite products ever, and the new Easyshare Touch is my new favorite camera.
