About

Photo-facts.com is a ridiculously ambitious attempt to explain everything there is to know about photography and every new product that comes along, linking everything together into one great universe of photo, er, facts.

It is and will probably remain a work in progress, though right now it already has nearly 600 definitions and the list is growing all the time.

You can browse the blog, check out products in the drop-down menus or use the alphabetical A-Z to look up a crazy number of different things. Please try it out and let me know what you think, what I’ve missed out and what I need to rewrite so that it makes a bit more sense.

Have a great day.

Rod Lawton.
