Believe it or not, Camera Labs is a pretty much a one-man operation, run by Gordon Laing – that’s me! I’m the photographer, writer, editor, publisher, marketeer and of course the tea boy too. I reckon my reviews are some of the most detailed you’ll find anywhere and each can take up to four weeks to complete from start to finish.PS - if you find my work useful don't forget you can support me when you shop for anything at B&H or Adorama using these links. Alternatively get yourself a copy of my treat me to a coffee! Thanks!
This is my full-time job and unbeknown to many visitors, I’m not sponsored by any of the camera companies and nor do I carry their advertising either. The entire revenue comes from three main sources: coffee donations, ebook sales and shopping at my partner stores. So if you find my reviews useful and would like to help me continue my work, here’s how!
Like my reviews? Buy me a coffee!
I make no secret about Camera Labs being powered by coffee! While travelling, I write many of my reviews in various cafes and you’ll often see a cup featured in many of my sample images and videos, not to mention my social posts.
So if you like what I do, click here to buy me a coffee and make a donation of your choice via PayPal; you don’t even need a PayPal account as they can process credit cards too. I’m always interested in what you like to drink or eat, and if there was anything specific you liked seeing at Camera Labs, so please do let me know in the PayPal feedback field.

Click to the shops!
I have affiliate partenerships with Amazon, B&H, Adorama and a number of other stores around the World. If you click through to them using one of my links and then buy something – anything at all, not just cameras! – they’ll pay me a small commission. In Amazon’s official words: “As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases”.
The price you pay is the same as when you visit the store direct, so it’s a win-win for both of us. So if you’re ever ordering anything at the stores below, please first click through to them via my links here or in my reviews!
Treat yourself to a Cameralabs T-Shirt!
No boring corporate logos on these T-Shirts! I asked Brighton artist Will Blood to design three unique T-Shirts for Cameralabs and partnered with Redbubble to get them printed and delivered around the World! Check out the official Cameralabs Merchandise!
Spread the word!
Another great way to support Camera Labs is to spread the word! Tell your friends and family about my reviews and please do share any articles you enjoyed on your social channels. Speaking of social networks, they’re the best places to find me if you want to get in touch; I can’t answer every question, as my reviews literally stop while I reply, but I’ll always try my best to help. You can find links to all of them at the bottom of this page.
Thanks for your support, without it, Camera Labs wouldn’t exist!
Gordon Laing, Editor
