Free Links Friday

Below are some of the best photography links from other sites that I came across this week. Enjoy!

How Many Images Should You Shoot At A Wedding? – Digital Pro Talk – David Ziser dishes out the lowdown on how he ends up with over 4000 images from a single wedding.

Nasty footage of Canon cameras destroyed due to shipping error – Crunchgear – See what happens when warehousing and shipping errors cause half a million dollars worth of damage to Canon gear.  Be careful.  This is not for the faint of heart.

Using a Slow Shutter Speed for Effect – LeggNet – Rich Legg gets nostalgic hearkening back to his high school days, and shows how breaking the rules (photographically speaking) can be a good thing.

Wanna Go Polaroid? Pick the Right One! – Epic Edits – Brian Auer talks instant film cameras and how to choose based on the availability of affordable film.

Sunset on Mars – Boing Boing – An image of a sunset on Mars.  Seriously.  It was taken by the Mars Rover.  I can’t really tell you why, but I find this exceptionally cool. Photo Contest: Summer – Wired – A new themed contest from Wired.  “The 10 highest-ranked photos will appear in a gallery on the home page.”

Thief steals Eye-Fi-equipped camera, proceeds to give himself away – Engadget – Eye-Fi should be renamed to “Private Eye-Fi” after snagging this bad guy.  Clearly, not the smartest of thiefs.  This should make every photographer that has had gear stolen at some point feel a little warm and fuzzy on the inside.
