KEH will be closed on Monday, July 4th. There will also be no blog post this day. For everyone in the US, have a safe and fun holiday!

Have you taken our current survey yet? It's on point and shoot cameras and camera phones. It's anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete. Please go take the survey here. Thanks!

In case you missed it, we've started two new blog series. "Questions for King" where you get to write us and ask your camera, photography, and business related questions to the KEH founder and have him answer them. We have also started producing KEH videos! About once a month we will be producing a short educational video that will be available on YouTube and will also be posted on the blog. We also joined Twitter and LinkedIn this month, so be sure to add us! (psssttt- you may really want to consider adding us on Twitter and Facebook especially because we may be doing some kind of exclusive social media giveaway. Maybe.)

You may have noticed a new feature at the bottom of blog posts within in the sharing button area. The "+1" button is the new Google +1 feature. Google says: "The +1 button is shorthand for "this is pretty cool" or "you should check this out". Click +1 to publicly give something your stamp of approval. Your +1's can help friends, contacts, and others on the web find the best stuff when they search." So, if you like a particular article we have posted, click that "+1" button! (It's kind of similar to "liking" a post on Facebook).
