Where I look for news
I usually like to check the news and the internet forum during coffee time. You can also ask questions there. Most of people there are very nice.
Other people! I go to a photo club often, to meet great people, share images, and join photo trips!
Where I Buy My Gears
For new stuffKen Rockwell DPReview Photo.net to the merchant site, so that the mechant will support the site I get my news from!
For used stuff, I will go to Craigslist eBay I prefer to buy locally. I sometime sell my used suff in eBay. Please be careful, never send out items until you are sure you have got the money. And do NOT use Western Union to send money to some iffy address.
If you get emails asking to update information in Paypal, eBay or your bank, do not click their links, usually they are trying to get your password. Try to open a new browser and type the web address yourself instead.
