Verizon has agreed to purchase Yahoo for the paltry sum of $4.83 billion. Considering that Microsoft offered to buy Yahoo only 8 years ago for a cool $45 billion, "paltry sum" seems like a fair descriptor even if Yahoo's glory days seem far behind them.
 
Included in the purchase – and of special interest to our site visitors – is Flickr, the still-popular photo sharing site. While Flickr may not be the juggernaut it once was, it's a service that I still personally enjoy using on a daily basis.
 
Even though I have many photo sharing accounts (500px, SmugMug, Google Photos, Instagram, etc), Flickr continues to be the one I like best. It's simple to use and there are wonderful groups who enjoy aiding in one's growth in photography. And even though Flickr has seemed neglected at times over the last few years, it has steadily improved (for the most part), regaining some relevance in the process (in my opinion, of course).
 
However, Verizon's takeover of Flickr gives me pause. I doubt Flickr is highly profitable in its current form, so I'm concerned about what changes Verizon might bring about to better capitalize on their investment.
 
Ads everywhere? A higher price for Pro Accounts? Disk quota limitations placed on all members? A complete liquidation assets or shutting it down entirely? Your guess is as good as mine.
 
Only time will tell if I am needlessly worried or hopelessly spinning my wheels with a photo sharing service that's seen its last hurrah.

The Samyang 135 f/2 has limitations, but it is a lot of lens for the money.

B&H has Vello ShutterBoss Remote Switches currently discounted by 20%.
 
The Canon TC-80N3 has been a valuable part of my kit for quite some time. I use it for time lapses and long exposures (like the one below). Considering that the Vello ShutterBoss II Remote Switch offers similar functionality at [currently] roughly 1/3 the cost of the Canon, it makes a strong case for adding to one's kit. [Sean]
