Do you know who the folks are that are recording it?

These are the men and women wearing the khaki Kodak vests, serving as their ID credentials, spending day after day picking the angles, carrying the looooong lenses, moving from venue to venue.
Photo Olympians to be sure.

But check out these sites to hear from the shooters on the scene.:
The Star, Beijing 2008, Sports Shooter, PopPhoto

And here is a collection of sites to check out the photos from the games.

A couple of notes: This is also Kodaks last year as a sponsor of the games. OK, who’s next? Canon? HP? Sony? Has to be a really big, well funded company.
And this year we see less white lens barrels than black ones. Nikon has pulled ahead with the D3 this year.

Read some of the stories in the photographers blogs above. What a great job they are doing. Seriously.
