Hi,

My favorite posts have been the behind the scenes stuff. I've also learned a lot about older cameras.

Thanks!

My favorite post was the one on the Minolta Miniflex (http://www.kehblog.com/2010/06/minolta-miniflex.html) I thought it was a great little feature on a unique item. Of course, I'm one of those junkies who loves unique old cameras, so it's right up my alley!

Congrats on the 6 months!

I've been trying to cut back on the number of blogs I read, but not this one. The whole KEHblog website has been a valuable resource so it's tough to pick one post that has been my favorite. Instead, I'll say that my favorite resource is putting the PDF's up on the website -- like the roadshow and the "gone green" catalog. Keep up the great work!

Keep up the good work!

Great site. I just posted the following tweet about the current contest...

Keh Camera Blog is giving away $50 http://bit.ly/boDvop #contest #photography

Favorite post.. I would have to say it's 'Reasons to Buy Used'. As much as I love digital, I still find myself drawn to the equipment I wanted at a time in my life when I was unable to afford it.

I personally not have purchased anything from KEH.com but I have heard it is the place to go to buy used equipment. I definitely have my eye out on a few items so I am sure I will be purchasing from KEH in the future.

As a strobist, my favourite post has been about flash and lighting. Especially the tips about the PC cords.
http://www.kehblog.com/2010/06/jumping-off-for-dramatic-lighting.html

I'm hoping to see more of this as I know a lot of the younger kids on here will appreciate it.

Keep up the good work!

My favorite post is the one about Vintage Ads (http://www.kehblog.com/2010/05/vintage-ads-summer-part-1.html). I like looking through these old ads and seeing how things have changed since then.

I've learned that used equipment is perfectly fine and that KEH is the best place to buy it.

I liked the "tips for keeping gear clean" post:

http://www.kehblog.com/2010/02/keeping-things-clean.html

Honestly I think you've got a good mix on this blog of general photography info, gear, tips, and "behind the scenes at KEH," all of which I enjoy.

What has your favorite post been?

Brief history + old photos

It was really interesting to see what the layout is. Maybe you could run a contest and the winner gets a tour of the warehouse?? That would be incredible to see all that gear in one place!

My favorite post has been "Reasons to Buy Used". I am in the search of buying a used DSLR and a friend recommended me to this site. I have learned that buying a used DSLR is the way to go for me. I have not purchased anything yet, but I'm definitely keep my eyes open for a great deal on a DSLR.

My favorite posts are the "behind the scenes" series - shocking, I know! :) If I had to pick one.... I think the most recent one - "Day of a Repair Clerk" (http://www.kehblog.com/2010/06/day-of-repair-clerk.html). It has the most personality!

Clever way to gather feedback & exposure btw!

Your blog is fun which is great because photography is fun, too! Too many blogs and sites are far too serious and bogged (blogged) down by too much techie stuff that takes away from the magic of photography. I came across your site very recently on the hunt for good, used gear and am impressed by the amount of cool stuff for sale (not to mention the grading chart) as well as the cool stuff to read. Me thinks I might need a mini digital camera or a Zeiss Ikon with blue leather! So fav posts so far have been the unique cameras as well, vintage posters as well as the behind-the-scenes.

My favorite post?
Well, considering I just found your awesome blog, (and will be bookmarking it) I'd have to say the "Reasons to buy used" http://www.kehblog.com/2010/06/reasons-to-buy-used.html definitely raised an eyebrow.
I never realized that manufacturer's recalls were 2%! The post was super informative and has persuaded me to buy more used equipment.

I have only purchased new lenses from KEH in the past, but I've decided today to sell a few of my pieces and to buy a used lens that I've been pining away for.

One last thing, you guys are so extremely pleasant and actually "fun" to deal with over the phone and in person... not like one of your competitors. KEH rules. Thanks for not being snobby.

Oh, and I'm so blogging about your site.
