    Aye my thoughts as well! Great to see such an all round fantastic reaction from both the membership and Adorama - great to see that some of the larger retailers are still taking time to consider the indevidual in these days :)

    overread: exactly. i usually order everything through amazon because they compete with pricing, and because im a prime member i get free 2 day shipping. i will definitely be ordering a few things from adorama in the very near future. it's one of the few cases where i dont mind paying a touch more if it means supporting a company that does the right thing.

    As if the extraordinary efforts by POTN members wasn't enough, I've been blown away by the unexpected and wonderful feedback - thank you.
    However, it wouldn't be right for me not to acknowledge my colleague Joel, who was an ear to bounce ideas off, as well as Brian & Harry in the Adorama Management Team who actually gave their approval.

    Not forgetting Derek from POTN who alerted me to the thread, giving us a chance to get involved, but more important, to be able to help a bunch of photogs to do something great.

    That's because POTN is an amazing photography board to belong to no matter what camera you shoot with. Much better than some of the other choices out there.
