We send our Patrons film and cameras! Real, tangible rewards. Here are the details.

The success of our Patreon campaign has allowed us to produce live video content, increase our frequency of long form articles (now every other day), and hire more writers. As the Patreon campaign continues, we have big plans to bring you more content, all with the same polished production values and quality you've come to love from Casual Photophile.

Since 2014 we've been publishing some of the best camera and photography content around. Doing this has become expensive (we've got a dedicated server, security services, five writers, a large subscription list, and many other expenses).

Patreon allows us to keep our content available for free for everyone, while giving our biggest fans special access to real, tangible rewards at the same time

We think our content is the best around - fact checked, in-depth, entertaining, and well-written - a rarity these days. If you think the same, become a Patron and let's start making even more amazing content. 

Whether you become a Patron or not, thank you for visiting Casual Photophile and allowing us to share in your hobby. And if you do decide to become a Patron, you'll enjoy Patron-only content, special coupons at our camera shop, and even free film and merchandise. That's pretty fantastic.

And don't worry - the cameras we reward our biggest fans with will be excellent, interesting, and fully functional SLRs, point-and-shoots, and maybe even rangefinders, any of which you'll be proud to shoot.
