Previews of Coming Attractions

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

Between now and the end of the year, you’ll be seeing some small changes to Mirrorless Photo Tips. Most if not all of these changes have been made at the request of you—this blog’s readers—about functions and features that you wanted us to add.

Subscribe to Blog via Email: This feature was added early in the blog’s life in response for a reader’s request. I urge you to sign up for this. It costs nothing and the software we use does not track your e-mail address like some social media sites. We can’t see it, only the total number of subscribers. Starting next month there will some special posts that you don’t want to miss, if you subscribe you won’t.


Top Posts: We know that not everyone can visit every day to see the current posts or easily see some of the previous and most popular ones. At the bottom of the right-hand column is a list of the Top Posts ranked not by what we like but by what our readers liked. Our blog’s software handles the list so it’s constantly updated. Be sure to check it out for something you might have missed.


Holiday Guide: Starting on November 10 and going through December 15, we’ll be offering a weekly feature showcasing stocking stuffers of useful gadgets and gizmos that will help make your photography or just your shooting environment better and more fun. We’ll also provide links to websites where you can find more information about the products or maybe make a purchase.

A reminder: Anything purchased from B&H Photo or Amazon through these links does not increase the cost of any item—it’s their same price to everyone—but pays us a small commission that helps keep this blog running. And while all us writers/photographers contribute for free, the cost of domain names, hosting, security and making sure everything works properly is not.

speelightsGear Guide: As I mentioned in my Digital Q&A this past Wednesday, we’ve updating the gear guide for two reasons: When finished, the guide will reflect the gear that Mark and I are currently using. And it will gradually be expanded to include more than just cameras and lenses, including equipment such as speedlights and camera bags. People have asked also us about computers (I must admit that this surprised me) and the software we use. We’ll gradually be adding all of this to the Gear page along with photos of the equipment too. You already know what we look like.
