In Case You Missed It – Our Favorite Articles of 2020

In Case You Missed It – Our Favorite Articles of 2020

2000 1125 James Tocchio

This is the last article of our three-part 2020 recap week. If you’ve enjoyed this little trip through some of the best camera reviews and then the most popular articles on the site this year, that’s great! Thanks for enjoying! If you didn’t, well, I’m sorry and we’ll be back to our regular publishing style and schedule this week. If I can just take one more day to reflect on the year and the site…

Over the last twelve months more than 3 million readers have enjoyed (hopefully) the words and images of Casual Photophile. That’s a readership number which I never expected when I began writing for and publishing to this site in 2014. For your visits and readership, I thank you. I hope that our work on this site has helped you escape from doom scrolling the news in this objectively unpleasant year. If you’ve struggled a bit in 2020, don’t worry. You’re not alone. And things will soon improve.

For today’s article, I’ve asked some friends of the site and the writer staff here to pick their favorite article that’s appeared on the site this year. And it’s reminded me of just what I love about running this site – we have articles on old cameras, on the history of the craft, on trivia around the gear that we use, on travel to exotic places, and introspective ruminations on life hung around the frame of photography. I’m so proud of the work my writers produce, and I hope you like it too.

Here are our personal favorite articles which have appeared on the site this year.


Well, that wraps things up for 2020. I hope that the site has helped you disconnect for a bit, to learn something, or helped you enjoy this hobby a bit more. You can see every article we posted, listed by date, here.
