It’s Saturday! Stop surfing the net and go take some pictures! That’s where I’m heading.

I always do my best to attribute the authors and sources of content that I link to here. It really chaps my rusty, however, when people take the content of others. Certainly, fair use is permitted in the blogging/news world. In fact, passing around content is generally encouraged – so long as you link back to your source. As photographers, we are particularly aware of copyright issues and proper attribution.
That said, let me take a moment to point out that canon40d.net has taken it upon itself to copy and paste the content of others with NO attribution whatsoever. Photography Bay’s recent post on the Canon 40D rumors now appears at the top of it’s page. As you can see by reading the post here on Photography Bay, canon40d.net has simply copied and pasted that post with no reference to the original post here.
Unfortunately, the site owner has not even provided a method to contact them via email or comments on the site. As a result, I’m left with no choice but to post this information here. I’m still considering whether to contact the host and issue a DMCA takedown notice, so if you’re reading this canon40D.net, you should do the right thing and create your own content and, when quoting others, properly attribute the authorship of the quoted sources. Given that the site has little original content, I’m not holding my breath.
Rather than link to canon40d.net, which improves the site’s search rankings, I’ll simply provide you with an image of the ripped off post (feel free to copy and paste the address to your browser though):
Now, read Photography Bay’s original post here.
FYI, Whois.Net provides the following info, which I have attempted to contact via email to no avail:

Forbes has the info:
Nikon chief financial officer Ichiro Terato told a press conference: ‘High-margin single-lens reflex digital cameras and interchangeable lenses are selling well thanks to the aggressive release of new models such as the D-80, D-40 and D-40X.’
Nikon sold 2.09 mln SLR digital cameras in the last fiscal year, up from 1.34 mln the year before.
It sold 2.64 mln interchangeable lenses for SLR digital cameras, up from 2.02 mln.
‘Brisk sales of high-end digital cameras and interchangeable lenses more than offset sluggish sales of our compact digital cameras,’ Terato said.
Raise your hand if you have something to do with this. I know I’ve enjoyed my new D40!
I think its pretty clear from these numbers that the release of the D40x over a D3 was more beneficial to Nikon’s bottom line. We all want a D3 though… or two of’em.

I’ve always recommended the book Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson because it does a great job of putting together all of the elements that go into a properly exposed photograph and explains it for the Average Joe. Consider picking up a copy. It’ll be the best $15 you spend in photography. Likewise, take a look at this resourceful tool, an interactive camera that demonstrates the effect that camera settings have on your photograph. You can see instant results for exposure and depth of field components. If you don’t quite get it yet, then check out these two useful tools for honing your skills as a photographer. If you do “get it”, I think both are probably still worth your time.
Need a backdrop and strapped for cash? Consider doing it yourself. Here’s how to.
If you haven’t read Rich Legg’s “Through the Viewfinder” post, go check it out now. It’s pretty cool stuff!
Check out this review of the new Fuji F40fd. Fuji has finally caught on and made way for SD memory cards. Kudos to Fuji. For more on why that’s important, check out my prior post on Memory Cards and Cameras. Finally, memory cards are still dirt cheap. Even big ones.

Wow! This is quite a creation. A very original image.
Shot with a Canon 20D and Lensbaby 2.0. FYI, there’s a Lensbaby 3G out now that’s a little more user friendly.

The EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is a lightweight, compact L Series telephoto zoom lens with Image Stabilizer. The optical Image Stabilization in the new EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens provides up to an incredible four stops of shake correction – a first for Canon IS lenses. The use of fluorite UD lens elements provides excellent optical performance in terms of resolution and contrast. These features, together with its water-and dust-proof construction, provide both the performance and portability to meet user demands. Read more . . .
